Date:11/14/2013

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center today announced that it has entered into a first-of-its-kind strategic affiliation agreement in the Triad with Cornerstone Health Care, P.A. through its wholly-owned management services organization Cornerstone Health Enablement Strategic Solutions, LLC (CHESS).

Both organizations describe the future as one that will emphasize value health care delivery and population management across diseases, such as managing large populations of patients with diabetes or heart failure using a variety of innovative technologies. These future models could allow patients to access support services such as case management, home-based care, weight management and a variety of customized services to support groups of patients with specific diseases or shared characteristics. 

The affiliation supports Wake Forest Baptist's mission to improve health throughout the region. John D.

Grace Terrell, M.D., chief executive officer for Cornerstone Health Care, said, "This is the first-of-its-kind Triad partnership between
