BOWIE, Md., Jan. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MedAssurant, Inc., a leading provider of data-driven healthcare solutions, today announced that Triple-S Salud, also known as BlueCross BlueShield of Puerto Rico, and its subsidiary American Health Medicare, have selected MedAssurant's Star Advantage™, Prospective Advantage® and INDICES™ systems in a multi-year engagement, providing an integrated solution for identifying and closing gaps in care, quality, assessment and documentation. The platform leverages the nation's most widely used healthcare quality measurement system, large-scale healthcare dataset analytics, and a nationwide clinical operations infrastructure to proactively identify, and both efficiently and effectively resolve gaps in member quality outcomes and improve financial performance.

MedAssurant's advanced analytical capabilities touch approximately 120 million Americans in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico – delivering superior insight into clinical and quality outcomes, claims and payment integrity, and financial performance improvement solutions. Leveraging the analysis of more than 5.2 billion medical events from more than 77 million unique de-identified individuals, MedAssurant's systems enable the near-real-time identification of gaps in care, quality, and financial performance. An additional analytical layer is then able to determine ideal intervention modality, venue, content, and timing for optimal member and provider engagement and gap resolution success. A nationwide infrastructure of clinical call centers, message fulfillment, integrated data platforms, and in-market clinical personnel numbering in the thousands brings to bear an end-to-end capability from analysis to impact – enabling meaningful health care improvement.

"Triple-S Salud and American Health Medicare are committed to providing medical excellence through high quality and cost-effective care in Puerto Rico," said Socorro Rivas-Rodriguez, President and Chief Executive Officer of Triple-S Salud.  "This partnership with MedAssurant is a key part of our focus on performance initiatives targeting a wide array of goals related to quality, efficiency and affordability of care over the coming years."

"There are many unique aspects to our member and provider environment in Puerto Rico," said Susan Rawlings Molina, President and Chief Executive Officer of American Health Medicare. "Our ability to have timely insight into our clinical outcomes, utilization, and risk scores is seen as a significant benefit in being a health care leader in Puerto Rico. MedAssurant's ability to not only provide these insights, but also partner in delivering powerful interventions to aid our members and physicians makes them a welcomed addition to our team."

"The pressure on health plans to deliver high quality of care and a concurrently strong financial performance is growing ever-more prevalent in today's reform environment," said Keith Dunleavy, M.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of MedAssurant. "We have been impressed by the thoughtfulness and attention to these issues at Triple-S Salud and American Health Medicare. It is a privilege to be working with a health plan that has such a focus on partnership and dedication to the innovative improvement of health services within their community."
