Deal Precedes Proven Results in Underserved Communities and the Strength of Social Determinants of Health Solutions Drive Medicaid Market Momentum
Fremont, CA: The increased usage of big data and its major influence on the healthcare sector has pushed it toward patient-centric treatment. The demand for care management systems is only growing as the population ages and chronic diseases become more prevalent. Information and healthcare technologies enable patient-centered care, allowing healthcare practitioners to operate at numerous locations. These reasons are accelerating the global adoption of healthcare solutions and increasing the need for care management systems. As a result, these are expected to drive market expansion in the next years.
"Getting CalOptima Health up and running on Health Cloud will establish a solid foundation for meeting the needs of California's Medi-Cal enrollees, including those underserved communities that are most vulnerable to social determinants of health," said ZeOmega Chief Medical Officer Dr. David Sand. "We look forward to building on that foundation over time, to broaden our range of services and solutions in these communities."
ZeOmega®, the premier population health management organization, has added CalOptima Health, California's third biggest Medicaid (Medi-Cal) plan, including its newest care management partner. This engagement is likely to be one of ZeOmega's most significant, reaching 914,646 people through the Jiva platform with its Health Cloud solutions addressing social determinants of health (SDOH), member engagement, care management, and more.
CalOptima Health, situated in Orange County, chose ZeOmega because of its extensive Medicaid experience and variety of turnkey capabilities. The SDOH Social Care Platform, Integrated Assessments, Member and Provider Portals, and member engagement capabilities of the Health Cloud will support the organization's aim of providing members with access to high-quality healthcare services that are both cost-effective and humane.
CalOptima Health is the latest in a long line of Medicaid-focused organizations to choose ZeOmega. It is the company's second Medi-Cal plan agreement, after Kern Health Systems, as it expands in the California market.
"This engagement is the latest example of the tremendous demand we've seen for our solutions to support Medicaid programs across the country, and it is extremely gratifying to see our SDOH and care management pathways recognized by leading organizations," said ZeOmega Chief Nursing Officer Sandra Hewett. "Being able to support nearly a million more lives in California, which is a national leader in addressing SDOH, is what ZeOmega is all about."
With its long-term commitment to transform & strengthen Medi-Cal, the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) is setting the national standard for Medicaid transformation, offering Californians a more equitable, coordinated, and person-centered approach to maximizing their health and life trajectory while enhancing the ability of its stakeholders to serve.
