PointClickCare Advances

PointClickCare Technologies, a leading healthcare technology platform enabling meaningful collaboration and access to real‐time insights at every stage of the patient healthcare journey, today announced the acquisition of Patient Pattern. The combination of PointClickCare and Patient Pattern will further the companies' shared vision of enabling better care and outcomes for high-needs populations and provide care teams with the solutions they need to successfully operate at the top of their license.

The shift to value-based care continues to accelerate each year, especially as providers are increasingly taking on more risk. According to a recent McKinsey and Company study, the number of patients treated within the value-based care landscape could roughly double in the next five years. Institutional Special Needs Plans (I-SNPs), demonstrate the enormous potential of aligned value-based care models.

“Senior care providers need support as they navigate new models of care and ultimately take on more risk-bearing responsibilities, inclusive of technology that helps them deliver exceptional care, particularly to high-needs populations,” said Travis Palmquist, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Senior Care at PointClickCare. “As our customers continue to embrace value-based care and see the success of this model, we are excited to deploy Patient Pattern’s care management platform. Care models will continue to evolve, and this strategic investment is another example of our commitment to helping our customers thrive in this evolving market, specifically, the opportunity to succeed with this shift to risk.”

Since its inception, PointClickCare has invested in innovation across the care continuum to close gaps in healthcare delivery through its rich and expansive insights. PointClickCare and Patient Pattern’s combined offerings provide a mechanism to adopt and succeed in risk-bearing arrangements without having to use multiple fragmented solutions. Through this acquisition, PointClickCare will further enable providers to take a comprehensive approach to frailty, ultimately providing better overall care planning.

“Over the past ten years, we’ve worked hard to integrate a care management philosophy and capabilities directly into our EHR,” said Dr. Steven Buslovich, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer at Patient Pattern. “We’re thrilled to join forces with PointClickCare as we march toward our collective goal of helping clinicians better predict and document risk, close care gaps, and improve patient outcomes. The marriage of an integrated care management platform with population health data will prove to be a major differentiator for us.”

Goodwin Procter LLP served as legal advisor and PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP served as tax and accounting advisor to PointClickCare. Nemphos Braue LLC served as legal advisor to Patient Pattern. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

AAFC Launches EASE® Healthcare Program in Ghana With FOCOS Orthopedic Hospital

businesswire | May 15, 2023

EASE® Ghana Limited, a subsidiary of African Asset Finance Company that provides state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment “as-a-service” to healthcare organizations, announces the signing of its first customer. The contract, which marks the launch of the EASE® Healthcare program in Ghana, will see the installation of a Siemens CT scanner in the Accra facility of FOCOS Orthopedic Hospital. “We are thrilled to announce this deal to bring a new, best-in-class CT scanner to one of Ghana’s leading healthcare providers,” said Kanyinsola Oyeyinka, AAFC’s VP Healthcare, Africa, responsible for AAFC’s EASE® Healthcare program across the continent. “The EASE® Healthcare program will support medical organisations across Africa in delivering the highest possible standard of health provision to their patients, and we are pleased to count FOCOS Hospital as one of our first customers.” Imraan Soomra, Chief Operations Officer of AAFC, added: “The Healthcare program is a significant element in our wider EASE® initiative, enabling customers to utilise best-in-class equipment they would otherwise be unable to access, benefiting organizations and their users.” In recent years, FOCOS Orthopedic Hospital has undergone a period of significant growth in clinic attendance. Between 2020 and 2022, the number of patients rose 60% year-on-year to over 11,000 – a figure that continues to rise. Through EASE® Ghana’s pay-per-scan service, the hospital will now be able to meet this increasing demand without facing exorbitant up-front costs – instead meeting the capital expense of its new Siemens CT scanner through cashflows generated in the use of the equipment itself. “Our pay-per-use model ensures that healthcare providers like FOCOS are able to access the highest quality equipment, whilst also benefiting from maintenance provision, operator training and ongoing support,” said Anita Appiah, EASE® Ghana's Business Development Manager. Dr Wulff, CEO of FOCOS Hospital commented: “With EASE, we're able to access first-rate diagnostic equipment for the hospital. This new scanner will add to our market-leading healthcare provision, enabling us to deliver an even higher quality of service to an even greater number of patients.” Dr Bernt Bieber, Senior Vice President, Siemens Healthineers comments: “The EASE program aligns with our purpose of making healthcare available to everyone, no matter where they live, and could meaningfully change the way healthcare is administered and accessed in the growing African market. We are excited to be part of it!" EASE® Ghana will upgrade FOCOS Hospital’s existing, non-functioning CT scanner with a new and upgraded CT from Siemens Healthineers (Somatom Go. Up CT 64 slice model). This new scanner will allow the hospital to significantly increase its daily exam volumes, boosting its ability to meet the needs of its patients without technical constraints on how many patients can be examined on a daily basis. About EASE® EASE® is an AAFC program that provides access to high-quality equipment – including maintenance, training and support – to businesses and organizations across Africa, allowing them to pay for the use of the equipment with the cashflows the equipment itself helps to generate.

Innovive Health Expands Groundbreaking Home Healthcare Model and Services to Colorado

Businesswire | April 26, 2023

Innovive Health, a data-driven home health care agency serving complex behavioral health patients, announced that it is expanding its groundbreaking behavioral health home care model to Colorado. The expansion comes as the nation’s health care system is facing a growing patient population with behavioral health needs and unprecedented staffing and economic pressures in the wake of the pandemic. Building on the agency’s growing operations in Massachusetts, which currently cares for more than 20,000 patient visits each week across the state, Innovive Health has acquired a license to operate in Colorado. “Nationally, there has never been a time when the need for mental health services in home or community settings have been more paramount. This expansion to Colorado not only helps meet this growing need, but also validates our innovative care model,” said Joseph McDonough, Founder and CEO of Innovive Health. “Our dedicated team of caregivers is proud to bring our model of care to Colorado and to care for patients where they need it most – in the safety of their homes and not in the emergency department." Operating out of Colorado Springs, Innovive Health already has a small staff of nurses on board who have begun seeing patients. Innovive Health’s unique home health model focuses on patients who have multiple medical comorbidities with complicating behavioral illness, treating and educating patients on their holistic well-being. With a deep understanding of the dynamics of the evolving data-driven healthcare market along with a proven track record of adopting new technologies – such as a cloud-based infrastructure and a fully integrated EMR – Innovive Health is well positioned to rapidly scale its services in new markets such as Colorado. “We are pleased to start operations in Colorado, which has demonstrated the state’s dedication to increasing access to care for behavioral health patients by earmarking $547 million to behavioral health projects for Coloradans,” said Nicholas D’Addabbo, Vice President of Strategy of Innovive Health. “With over 82,000 outpatient behavioral health visits in Colorado Springs in 2019 and more than 18 percent of Colorado Springs adults reporting having experienced a behavioral health disorder in the last year, increasing access to home and community-based supports for patients with comorbid behavioral and physical illness is imperative.” Since its inception in 2004, Innovive Health has played a vital role as the hub for a complex care team – coordinating with a multitude of specialists and providers across the continuum of care. For nearly two decades, the innovative home healthcare agency has built a strong clinical and operations team while establishing and expanding the company’s partnerships with healthcare organizations and world-class technology companies to fundamentally change the way care is delivered to this population. Innovive Health provides skilled nursing services in the home with specialty programs to assist in the overall treatment and management of comorbid disease processes. “Based on our track record serving some of Massachusetts most vulnerable behavioral health patients, I’ve seen how home healthcare can remove the social barriers to continuing care and reduce unnecessary utilization of high-cost ED and hospital visits,” added McDonough. “Our complex behavioral health patients have at least one severe mental health diagnosis with an average of 10-12 medical comorbidities – they also take up to 10-15 medications and often live in communities with less access to care. Given our experience with this patient population, we are well positioned to have an immediate impact in treating similar patients in Colorado, which will help deliver better patient outcomes while taking pressure off the healthcare system.” About Innovive Health With operations in Massachusetts and Colorado, Innovive Health is one of the nation’s fastest growing home healthcare agencies focused on serving complex behavioral health patients. Innovive Health has been delivering strong clinical outcomes for nearly two decades and is transforming healthcare through an innovative model of patient-centered, data driven, full-service home care. The agency provides high quality nursing and services to some of the nation’s most vulnerable and underserved populations in the safety and comfort of their homes and communities.
