Waltham, Mass., February 21, 2014 — Verisk Health, a data-driven healthcare technology company, today announced that it will launch its innovative Accountable Care Organization (ACO) solution at the HIMSS 2014 Conference and Exhibition to be held in Orlando, FL at the Orange County Convention Center. This new software solution streamlines quality reporting for the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) and supports population health management through advanced risk analytics and workflow tools. Verisk Health will demo the new ACO solution as well as its other provider tools at Booth #477. Verisk Health is a subsidiary of Verisk Analytics (Nasdaq:VRSK).
Verisk Health’s ACO solution is a comprehensive solution suite that enables providers to implement an ACO strategy to improve outcomes in risk management, system performance, and quality compliance. The solution is designed to address gaps in care, identify waste, measure practice variation, and facilitate MSSP ACO measure reporting and submission. In addition, it tracks year-over-year analysis and benchmarking across all 33 measures.
“We’ve listened carefully to our MSSP ACO clients to develop a solution that supports them with quality improvement, reporting, and population health management,” said Matt Siegel, senior vice president of provider solutions for Verisk Health. “This game-changing offering helps alleviate the pain of the group practice reporting option (GPRO) submission process while driving medical cost savings opportunities with population risk management analytics. Verisk Health works closely with our customers to bring relevant and innovative applications to market. Clients using the new solution can expect enhanced capabilities for periodic assessment as well as GPRO submission. We look forward to demonstrating the power of this new solution at HIMSS.”
Verisk Health Invites HIMSS Attendees to Give Back to the Local Community
In addition to exhibiting at HIMSS, Verisk Health has organized an event to help the local community through the Hi-Five Kids Pack Program of the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. The program provides nutritious meals to children who do not have access to school cafeterias during the weekend. HIMSS attendees are invited to help create food packs with a variety of kid-friendly, shelf-stable items at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, February 25, at the Rosen Centre Hotel ? just a two-minute walk from the convention center and accessible via the sky bridge. Verisk Health anticipates the preparation of 4,000 food packs for the community.
“We feel a strong corporate responsibility to give back to the local community, and we’re honored to partner with the Hi-Five Kids Pack Program,” said Siegel. “We have an ambitious goal of creating 4,000 packs during our event and hope all HIMSS attendees will join us to help ease the weekends of thousands of children throughout central Florida.”
