Wexford PHO Moves to SPH Analytics for Improved Population Health Management

SPH Analytics, a leader in healthcare analytics and population health management, today announced that Wexford Physician Hospital Organization (PHO) has successfully deployed SPH’s Population Care™ all-payer population health management solution to achieve its quality and cost goals within the framework of value-based care. Use of Population Care is benefitting more than 77,000 patients covered by value-based contracts across the 500-provider Physician Hospital Organization in Northern Michigan by streamlining care processes, monitoring quality, and helping providers identify and close gaps in care for improved patient outcomes.

“We saw it as inevitable that our payer partners would ask us to start participating in contracts with downside risk. We knew that to succeed in that environment, we would need tools to help us manage our most complex, high-cost patients proactively.,” said Kim Speese, Executive Director of Wexford PHO. “We chose the SPH Analytics solution for its flexibility to handle requirements from any commercial or government payer, as well as its ease of use at the point of care. We are already seeing the benefits of proactive care management that will position us for the future of healthcare.”

SPH’s Population Care solution helps ensure patients receive the same high-quality, outcomes-driven care regardless of their location or care provider. Specifically, SPH Analytics and Wexford PHO are working to aggregate data across 30+ locations, incorporating eight EHR systems, as well as data from claims, appointment schedules and other healthcare sources. Actionable insights are then used to facilitate population segmentation and targeted interventions as well as to consistently measure and monitor clinical quality measures. Specifically, SPH Analytics is helping Wexford PHO:

  • Improve cost performance by aligning clinical objectives across the organization for high-risk, high-cost patients;
  • Better manage common conditions including diabetes, hypertension and congestive heart failure (CHF);
  • Establish key performance indicators (KPIs) that will work for a variety of risk-bearing payer relationships/arrangements;
  • Close care gaps associated with quality measures promoted by multiple payers.

“More than ever, health networks need tools to align clinical and cost objectives in a way that minimizes inefficiencies and drives impactful quality outcomes improvements,” said Kevin Weinstein, President, Population Health for SPH Analytics. “We are delighted to partner with a progressive, forward-thinking organization like Wexford PHO to elevate the way providers in northern Michigan understand and drive quality, cost and utilization across diverse networks.”
