Jacksonville, FL, January 29, 2019 –(PR.com)– Morrisville, N.C.-based C3HealthcareRx (C3) and The Florida Association of ACOs (FLAACOs) announced today a strategic partnership that will help Florida Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) capitalize on a consistent, affordable approach to engage members through in-home visits, medication management, and mental health programs that help ACOs lower costs and improve outcomes.
“From Day One, we’ve been aligning our business around how value-based care is poised to rewrite nearly every equation in healthcare,” said Mike Perriccio, founder and CEO of C3HealthcareRx. “No one understands that dynamic better than ACOs, who are on the ‘front lines’ of that transformation. Given the state’s large and growing Medicare Advantage population, its no wonder Florida has such an engaged ACO community that’s quick to share best practices and identify new and better ways to serve patients. We believe that all FLAACOs members share a spirit of innovation and a desire to drive better outcomes, and we’re confident we can help them do that through our unique, technology-driven in-home programs.”
Perriccio explained that through affordable 30-minute monthly home visits using CNAs, C3 helps its clients gather important medication data to improve adherence, assess behavioral health, check vital sign and obtain fall risk data from patients. That data is processed by proprietary C3 artificial intelligence (AI)-driven software and then shared with a nurse or pharmacist for remote review and action. The company also is introducing a cloud-based, high-definition, HIPAA-compliant video communication platform that will enable even more robust telehealth, including tele-psychiatry, site-to-site care and distance counseling.
“Medication errors, growing depression, potential falls getting up from a chair – we can help ACOs proactively identify and address all of them through our services that complement theirs,” Perriccio added. “Our unique combination of clinical knowledge, advanced automation and in-home reach helps us deliver key insights into patient health trends and determine steps to reduce risks and ensure the best long-term health outcomes.”
FLAACOs’ mission is to provide members a vehicle to collaborate, ensuring that each healthcare organization grows and thrives. The Florida-based association aligns goals to help member ACOs shift physician incentives and improve healthcare outcomes across the state. FLAACOs provides a voice for the accountable care marketplace and its participating providers, payers, and individual physicians. The goal of FLAACOs is to provide advocacy and support to all Florida accountable care organizations so that together they can become the healthcare models of the future.
