Altruista Health Selected by Health Alliance for Care Management & Population Health

GuidingCare emerges as top choice after thorough market review  

(March 5, 2019, Reston, Va.) Altruista Health®, an innovative provider of care management technology solutions, today announced that Health Alliance has selected Altruista for a full suite of care management and population health modules following a comprehensive scan of the market. Health Alliance will implement GuidingCare® modules in Care Management, Utilization Management, Appeals & Grievances, Reporting and Population Heath. Health Alliance will empower plan clinicians with the Mobile Clinician app and plan members will use a GuidingCare portal.
   
Health Alliance is a provider-aligned health plan in Champaign, Illinois, and is part of The Carle Foundation, a vertically integrated health system that includes a hospital, provider network and health plan. Their more than 230,000 members are in the Midwest and Washington, and belong to both commercial and Medicare plans. Health Alliance joins the ranks of member plans from the Alliance of Community Health Plans (ACHP) that rely on Altruista and GuidingCare.

“Health Alliance partnering with Altruista Health to support our members makes perfect sense,” said April Vogelsang, System Vice President of Population Health for Carle and Health Alliance. “Both of our organizations are committed to improving outcomes based on best practice standards. This technology will help us identify, collaborate and build relationships with our members in new and innovative ways.”

The GuidingCare technology platform seamlessly brings together all the information needed for comprehensive care plans, integrating preventive and acute care, chronic disease management, behavioral health, long-term care and community services.

“We are delighted to welcome another ACHP plan to the fold because we know what a good fit our solutions are for community-based plans that are innovating models of care,” said Altruista Chief Executive Officer Ashish Kachru. “The Health Alliance integrated model will rest on a single powerful platform offering a full picture of member health and complete coordination of care.”
