Grand Rapids, Michigan-based clinically integrated organization with
over 90,000 at-risk patients leverages Lightbeam for population health
management initiatives to improve quality and reduce costs

IRVING, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#CEO–Answer Health strives to improve care in all areas and offer patients
the best outcomes possible. By systematically supporting adherence to
clinical pathways and performance standards, Answer Health helps ensure
their patients are receiving the highest quality, most appropriate level
of care. To support their mission and standards, Answer Health has
successfully deployed a population health management platform from
Lightbeam Health Solutions.

With Lightbeam, Answer Health is managing nine Medicare and commercial
contracts totaling over 90,000 at-risk patients. They are using
Lightbeam’s population health management platform to:

  • Improve visibility across payer contracts
  • Identify cost and quality inefficiencies
  • Reduce ER and IP utilization
  • Close gaps in care and improve quality across measure programs

Answer Health will leverage Lightbeam’s ability to aggregate data from a
variety of sources and consume health information from regional health
information exchanges (HIE). This capability allows engagement and
patient monitoring for those recently discharged from hospitals and
acute care facilities.

“Lightbeam is a key partner in our efforts to integrate clinical
performance data across hundreds of independent practice sites and to
provide the best care and value to our patients,” said Dr. Khan Nedd,
CEO of Answer Health.

“We are thrilled to have Answer Health join Lightbeam,” said Pat Cline,
CEO of Lightbeam Health Solutions. “We are grateful for the opportunity
to partner with Answer as they improve patient care, support providers,
and pursue their corporate vision.”
