Azara Healthcare, the 2023 Best in KLAS provider of population health management solutions, and Kentucky Primary Care Association (KPCA), the not-for-profit corporation of community health centers, rural health clinics and primary care centers in the state of Kentucky, today announce their partnership to facilitate care transformation, shared savings, and risk sharing across the Kentucky Primary Care Clinically Integrated Network (KPC CIN). Azara Healthcare offers clinically integrated networks (CINs), primary care associations (PCAs), health center controlled networks (HCCNs) and participating network members a comprehensive data reporting solution that provides the actionable information necessary to increase quality and efficiency while managing costs in all aspects of care delivery.
Azara DRVS will serve as the core platform to facilitate care transformation, shared savings, and risk sharing for KPC CIN member clinics. DRVS will provide KPCA with the ability to integrate claims and cost data from payers with clinical data—giving providers and management a 360-degree integrated view of patient care, risk, utilization, and total medical expense. DRVS also provides detailed information at every level from the individual patient to complete network—from point of care through care coordination support.
“Data insights into network- and provider-level performance in clinical quality, cost, and utilization is imperative to our success in the value-based agreements that advance high-quality, cost-effective, and patient-centered care,” said Stephen Houghland, MD, Chief Medical Officer, KPCA. “Azara’s track record with networks like ours in combining data from multiple sources to provide actionable information made them stand out during the selection process.”
Goals and objectives for the use of Azara DRVS at the KPC CIN include:
- Enabling data sharing and coordination to strategically use data to advance the success of the network through analytics as well as workflow and care strategies.
- Improving documentation, quality performance, and accountability.
- Maintaining care quality and related financial success.
“By providing a clinically integrated data warehouse and population health solution, Azara DRVS enables KPCA to collect, organize, and present data from its CIN members seamlessly, as well as equip participants to quantitatively document the value and quality of the care they deliver to meet their near-term reporting initiatives while providing the information and analytics necessary to remain viable and thrive for years to come,” said Jeff Brandes, Azara’s President & CEO. “Azara DRVS will provide the technological foundation for the network’s vision of being a valued provider of key services to its members and their communities, now and well into the future.”
