Tandigm Health Chooses Lumeris to Enable Value-Based Care Initiatives

Partnership will Deliver Enhanced Care Coordination for Chronic Conditions to Reduce Costs while Improving Outcomes

PHILADELPHIA & ST. LOUIS--()--Lumeris today announced that Tandigm Health, a joint venture owned by Independence Blue Cross and DaVita HealthCare Partners, that helps deliver high-quality, affordable care to the Philadelphia region, has selected Lumeris as its population health technology vendor for value-based care. Initially, Lumeris will support primary care physicians (PCPs) contracted with Tandigm and provide them with services to better manage difficult chronic conditions while delivering more personalized, high-quality care.

“Tandigm Health is a forward-thinking organization, with a strong coordinated care foundation, that recognizes the essential role effective population health management has in improving care coordination and quality”

Lumeris’ technology-enabled solutions will initially help support approximately 300 Tandigm PCPs, in nearly 100 locations across Southeastern Pennsylvania. To date, nearly 700 additional users of Lumeris’ technology, including the PCP offices, have been registered in the Accountable Delivery System Platform (ADSP)® to support enhanced patient visits. In the next several weeks, data will be further integrated into the ADSP for more functionality for Tandigm Health.

“Tandigm Health was built on the belief that the traditional doctor/patient relationship is the key to highly effective care, and that primary care physicians are at their best when they have the most innovative tools and technology helping them provide a new standard of highly coordinated care,” said Anthony V. Coletta, M.D., M.B.A., president and chief executive officer of Tandigm Health. “Lumeris provides tools and services that uniquely support our mission of improving patient satisfaction, reducing duplicative services and managing health care expenditures.”

“Tandigm Health is a forward-thinking organization, with a strong coordinated care foundation, that recognizes the essential role effective population health management has in improving care coordination and quality,” said W. Michael Long, chairman and CEO of Lumeris. “Lumeris has been delivering the operations, technology and consulting services needed to more effectively manage populations for better outcomes for more than a decade, and we look forward to working with Tandigm Health to transform health care delivery.”
