CareCentrix, a company that manages patient care to the home, has signed a 3-year agreement for a sleep management program with Evolent Health, a technology-enabled operating partner to healthcare systems undergoing value-based care transformation. Sleep management is a large and growing challenge with 44 million adults suffering from some form of sleep-disordered breathing.
Evolent entered the agreement with CareCentrix on behalf of one of its large healthcare system clients to help coordinate treatment of sleep disorders for the system’s patients. The CareCentrix Sleep Management program, the only complete end-to-end sleep management solution, is designed to give patients the greatest opportunity for therapeutic success when being treated for obstructive sleep apnea and other sleep disorders.
“Our program allows us to test and manage sleep disorders in the most cost-effective and patient-friendly way–at home,” says John Driscoll, CareCentrix CEO, in a release. “Not only are we able to save critical health care dollars by ensuring the most appropriate care, we’re also very proud of the 94% satisfaction rate we have with the patients we work with through our sleep program.”
Dr Elizabeth Malko, Evolent’s executive vice president of clinical transformation and operations, says, “Our agreement with CareCentrix is directly aligned with our goal of integrating the latest care innovations into our comprehensive population health management offering. We are glad to be working with CareCentrix in our effort to transform care delivery through solutions that provide exceptional value to our system partners, their care teams, and their patients.”
