Orange County Hospital System, Integrated Healthcare Holdings, Joins ApolloMed ACO

GLENDALE, Calif., Sept. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Apollo Medical Holdings, Inc. ("ApolloMed") (OTCQB:AMEH), a physician-centric integrated healthcare delivery company,'  today announced that Integrated Healthcare Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: IHCH) ("IHHI") has signed a hospital ACO (Accountable Care Organization) participation agreement with ApolloMed ACO in Orange County, California.

Based in Santa Ana, California, IHHI is a publicly traded hospital management company that owns and operates four hospital facilities in Orange County, California:  282-bed Western Medical Center in Santa Ana, 188-bed Western Medical Center in Anaheim, 178-bed Coastal Communities Hospital in Santa Ana and 114-bed Chapman Medical Center in Orange. 

Under the terms of the agreement, ApolloMed and IHHI will partner to provide ACO patients with high quality care focused on achieving better outcomes at lower costs.  ApolloMed will also work with IHHI aligned providers to share clinical data, manage high-risk patients, coordinate care across each patient's full care continuum and to establish quality benchmarks for the delivery of highly attentive care. 

"We are very pleased that IHHI has elected to team its hospitals with ApolloMed ACO," stated Warren Hosseinion, M.D., Chief Executive Officer of Apollo Medical Holdings, Inc. "We look forward to working with our network of ACO physicians in Orange County, as well as IHHI's hospital case managers, nursing staff and hospital administrators to enhance patient care and efficiencies, and to share in the cost savings we realize as a result of our concerted efforts."

According to the L.E.K. Consulting Strategic Hospital Priorities Study, published in April 2013, the most critical initiatives of hospitals' strategic plans in 2013 continue to be "cost management," "data connectivity across the spectrum of clinical care," and "utilization of outcomes data."  The survey tracked disruptions to traditional healthcare models that have been underway for the past few years and found that ACOs are taking hold with over 80% of surveyed hospitals making future plans to join or are already participating in an ACO.

"The success of healthcare reform rests on transforming into a more effective, cost-efficient healthcare system," stated Kenneth Westbrook, Chief Executive Officer and President of Integrated Healthcare Holdings, Inc. "By leveraging ApolloMed ACO's coordinated care platform, IHHI looks forward to identifying opportunities to further enhance the high quality metrics and outcomes of our patients' care, and, in the process, to increase our competitive edge in the markets we serve."
