Reform Driven Solution Provides Real-Time Transparency, Accountability and Minimizes Provider Risk for Patient Healthcare

CHICAGO, Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Caremerge LLC, a revolutionary communication and care coordination platform for the senior care industry, announced today a new partnership with Aver Informatics that will bring the industry's first end-to-end turn-key solution for the bundled payment care initiative for long term care providers. Aver Informatics is a bundled payment data management platform that simplifies the healthcare reimbursement process.  Together this marks the industry's first bundled payment solution set forth by healthcare reform due to the Affordable Care Act.

The easy-to-use integrated solution will allow providers to minimize risk through increased real-time transparency and accountability among their outside partners. Long-term care providers can now get ready for the bundled payments initiative through three simple steps:

  • Historical claims data is ingested into the Aver Informatics system with necessary analytics helping providers identify the best diagnosis (optimal episodes) based on their risk tolerance. 
  • Providers then setup the same diagnosis for patients, centralizing all care efforts with other outside providers through Caremerge's proven care coordination platform that includes: transitions, shared scheduling, shared calendars, shared work-lists, shared care plans, HIPAA compliant in-context messaging, etc. to help manage risk on a real-time basis and make necessary modifications to care plans, treatments, and partners to achieve the highest level of care in the most efficient manner
  • Data from Caremerge is then fed back into Aver in real-time to help providers continue to evaluate and identify optimal episodes, instead of waiting for claims information after several weeks, which only tells part of the story when it comes to partner providers and their relevant efforts in collaborating and getting the patients healthy quickly.

"We are excited to announce this partnership with Aver and the introduction of a first of its kind comprehensive bundled payment solution for this often overlooked market," said Asif Khan, CEO, Caremerge. "The solution leverages the core revolutionary care coordination capabilities within Caremerge and ties in real-time analytics through Aver. Our integrated solution allows long term care providers to embrace bundled payments through a simple and affordable solution. We are seeing a significant demand of our solution from Care Management to Transitional Care to Skilled Nursing to Hospital system providers, and we highly encourage our clients to get their implementations scheduled at their earliest to avoid any delays."

"Partnering with an award winning and innovative company like Caremerge allows Aver to deliver bundled payment analytics and reimbursements in any care setting," said Kurt Brenkas, CEO, Aver Informatics. "We are helping to fuel the transition to value based reimbursement and doing that means mashing up real-time care related services data to provide ground-breaking analytics to our clients."
