FRISCO – Texas March 27, 2012
ZeOmega, Inc., the premier provider of software solutions for collaborative care management, announced today that Lovelace Health Plan, a part of Lovelace Health System of Albuquerque, N.M.,has selected the ZeOmegaTM Jiva™ software solution as part of its integrated care management strategy to improve the overall health of nearly 200,000 people across New Mexico. The implementation of Jiva is currently underway.
“As a health plan attached to a health system, we needed a solution that could facilitate close collaboration with physicians and hospitals in the Lovelace Health system,” said Dr. John Cruickshank, Chief Medical Officer for Lovelace Health Plan. “Jiva’s provider portal and its capabilities to engage providers in the care collaboration process was clearly more advanced than the other solutions we evaluated.”
“Another key consideration was the ability for the solution to support our ICD-10 readiness and transition strategy,” added Dr. Cruickshank. “We need a solution that can support both ICD-9 and ICD-10 and enable us to transition to ICD-10 smoothly over a period of time. Of all the solutions we evaluated, Jiva was best suited to our needs.”
“Given our experience in Medicaid chronic care, ZeOmega was one of the first care management software companies to recognize the importance of provider engagement in facilitating care management. ZeOmega has consistently invested in building out such provider engagement capabilities.” said Nandini Rangaswamy, Executive Vice President for ZeOmega. “IDNs like Lovelace Health Plans are well-positioned to develop models of accountable care that can deliver high quality care efficiently.
