WellSky® Leads Movement for Connected, Intelligent Care Through Launch of Value-Based Care Suite That Powers Lower Costs, Better Outcomes

July 12, 2021 GMT

OVERLAND PARK, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 12, 2021--

WellSky, a global health and community care technology company, today announced the next chapter in its ongoing mission to realize better healthcare outcomes: the launch of the WellSky Value-Based Care Suite. The new suite is built for provider, payer, and patient collaboration in today’s value-based care environment, with a range of offerings that enable care coordination, interoperability, predictive insights, value-based agreements, and emerging health-at-home programs.

Stakeholders across acute, post-acute, and community care have long been disconnected, lacking the tools and technology they need to facilitate effective transitions between care settings, given the highly fragmented post-acute and community care landscape. To solve for this, payers and providers are investing in capabilities that enable stakeholders across the continuum to drive better outcomes, improve patient satisfaction, and increase savings.

“As an industry, we’re on the precipice of sweeping change that will ultimately enable better quality of care,” said Bill Miller, WellSky CEO. “As the leading technology provider in this space, it’s WellSky’s responsibility to deliver best-in-class solutions for every kind of care — from acute to post-acute to community. With this 360° view, WellSky is opening the door to increased visibility that benefits all health stakeholders, including payers, providers, and patients alike.”

WellSky’s suite of interoperable solutions and services delivers coordinated care across the continuum using advanced care management technology, post-acute and community-based connected networks, and real-time analytics. With a proprietary machine-learning infrastructure, WellSky continuously analyzes claims, social determinants, and real-time electronic health record (EHR) data to provide deep insight into care risks and opportunities — helping providers and payers collaborate to drive clinical success.

“The majority of avoidable hospital readmissions occur within the first few days after being discharged to the home,” noted Miller. “This underscores the importance of using data and technology to coordinate efforts and engage patients discharged to the home in a timely manner.”

With more than one in four home-based care providers using WellSky’s EHR platforms, WellSky represents the most connected network in post-acute care. Through the WellSky Value-Based Care Suite, providers and payers can easily manage patients along their care journeys, ensuring smoother care transitions and smarter care in each setting.
