Case Management Solution Will Help Commonwealth Care Alliance Coordinate Care and Improve Workflow

BEDFORD, Mass., Oct. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Casenet, Inc., a provider of innovative care management software solutions, today announced that Commonwealth Care Alliance, a not-for-profit care delivery system, will employ Casenet's case management solution to more effectively manage its members' care. The Casenet platform fosters collaboration and communication between direct care providers and Commonwealth Care Alliance. In doing so, Commonwealth Care Alliance fulfills its promise to provide responsive, continuous and cost-effective medical and social services for people with complex medical needs.

"The Casenet platform and philosophy are a perfect fit for our team-based approach to care management. Casenet is designed to unify multiple systems and provides everyone involved with a complete, single view of each patient's record," said Lois Simon, COO, Commonwealth Care Alliance. "With Casenet, we'll be able to improve the quality and delivery of care while improving efficiencies by streamlining workflows. This is critical as our members have complex medical needs and our care managers have demanding jobs to do in meeting the needs of our members."

As a consumer-governed organization, Commonwealth Care Alliance's mission is to provide the best possible care tailored to each individual's needs. Prior to Casenet, Commonwealth Care Alliance used different applications for their varied activities associated with managing membership in the organization. Now, Casenet will provide Commonwealth Care Alliance member services staff, enrollment staff and care managers as well as the provider network with a single data source for thorough and up-to-date patient information to aid in more accurate and efficient decision-making. By integrating the claims payment system and replacing enrollment and care management systems with Casenet, Commonwealth Care Alliance will benefit from a centralized, cross-disciplinary design that increases efficiencies and collaboration, thereby improving care recommendations and overall health outcomes, and better managing healthcare costs.

"Commonwealth Care Alliance is a clear leader in care delivery and has the proven ability to achieve successful outcomes for patients through an integrated healthcare model," said Bret Siarkowski, founder and CTO, Casenet. "The Casenet case management solution will enable Commonwealth Care Alliance to take collaborative care to the next level, continuing its commitment to providing members with the best possible care."

Commonwealth Care Alliance worked with The Gugenheim Group, LLC (http://www.thegugenheimgroup.com), who led the software search and selection process. Together, they will implement requirements for delivering an integrated solution, including medical management, enrollment and eligibility, single provider platform, and tools to enable and support the delivery of highly collaborative care.

"The process of defining and selecting a care management vendor made it clear that the solution needed to enable true team collaboration focused on the member, rather than the software," said Mary Gugenheim, project lead, The Gugenheim Group. "After evaluating a number of solutions, Casenet was the only one that provided that flexibility and focus."
