Summit Reinsurance Services, Inc. today announced a strategic collaboration with xG Health Solutions, Inc. Through this collaboration, Summit Re will enable clients to obtain a comprehensive population health assessment designed to optimize clinical and value-based performance. This will be particularly valuable to healthcare entities which engage in higher levels of financial risk as they work to effectively coordinate care across populations of patients, including accountable care organizations.
The proprietary assessment developed by xG enables entities to identify strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities for development within a best practices model. Focus areas include care management and coordination of staff roles, transitions of care, chronic disease management, patient risk assessment, data analytics, and documentation practices. Following an onsite evaluation, clients receive a comprehensive report that can serve as a blueprint for the creation, implementation, and ongoing evolution of an evidence-based care management model.
“We are very excited to work with xG. Our companies share a passion for working with clients on an individual level to help each one be as effective as possible,” says Brian Fehlhaber, Vice President of Sales for Summit Re. “As the healthcare industry continues to shift focus toward quality and value-based measures, the tools xG brings to Summit Re clients can help them improve their processes to optimize the delivery of care—with the ultimate goal of improving patient outcomes.”
Andrew Blackmon, Chief Sales Officer for xG Health Solutions adds, “Together with Summit Re, we will help healthcare entities drive financial savings and clinical improvement through our assessments built around industry-leading best practices.”
In addition to the assessment, xG also offers a broad palette of solutions to help drive the behavioral change necessary to reliably achieve and sustain value transformation. These include care redesign and management, actionable analytics, industry-leading content, and bundled payment solutions.
