Singing River Selects MassCare for Wellness & Chronic Care Solutions
ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. & JACKSON COUNTY, MISS. – FEBRUARY 01, 2019
MassCare, LLC announced that it has been selected as the Annual Wellness Visit (AWV) and Chronic Care Management (CCM) solutions provider of choice for Singing River Health System, a mission-driven provider of health services and one of the largest employers on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. MassCare’s, AWV and CCM solutions are being deployed by Singing River to proactively address the healthcare needs of its 5,000+ Medicare patient population.
The selection of MassCare as Singing River’s AWV & CCM program provider is the result of an exhaustive study of available program providers by Singing River’s Senior management team.
MassCare has grown to be one of the most respected and admired AWV & CCM program providers in the country. Built upon reputation, MassCare is a leader in bringing both staff and technology solutions to the healthcare industry, offering customers a unique array of services unavailable elsewhere.
“We compared a range of program providers,” said Charlie Brinkley, Singing River’s Chief Financial Officer. “MassCare stood out for its overall approach and ease of integration into our existing practice processes. By adding MassCare’s clinical pharmacists into our ambulatory settings we’re able to offer patients with chronic conditions unparalleled, proactive care.”
Brinkley continued, “We wanted to stay ahead of the curve related to the transition from Sick Care to Value-Based Care as defined and required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).”
Jake Michel, co-founder and CEO of MassCare, says, “Our success with new customer, Singing River Health System further demonstrates our position as the market leader in providing Value-Based Care programs to hospital systems within ambulatory settings, as well as, individual healthcare providers. Our programs aim to provide proactive care to our customer’s chronically ill patients, with the goal of improving their health and outcomes and ultimately lowering the overall costs of healthcare.”
MassCare proactively works with chronically ill patients to change their lifestyle and behaviors to improve outcomes and therefore lower the overall cost of healthcare. At the same time, our programs increase the level of reimbursements physicians and hospital systems earn from Medicare and commercial insurance companies.
