UCM Digital Health

On January 24, 2023, UCM Digital Health, a leader in the digital health industry, and MVP Health Care, a nationally renowned health plan, launched the Treatment in Place program. With the help of this new initiative, MVP members will have access to the proper care at the correct time, no matter where they are – at home, at work, or elsewhere.

When an MVP member dials 911, an EMS provider is sent to the member's location, activating the Treatment in Place program. The program gives EMTs and paramedics from partner organizations access to the UCM team, including their medical staff and care coordinators, to help treat patients more effectively right where they are. Using telemedicine, EMTs or paramedics collaborate with a doctor trained in emergency medicine at UCM to treat patients that have non-life-threatening conditions swiftly.

The patient is given appropriate, high-quality, and cost-effective care through a combination of hands-on and virtual care without the need to visit the emergency room. This program benefits the patient and lets EMS organizations save on the cost of transporting the patient to the emergency room. For instance, EMS professionals can quickly evaluate the patient's vital signs, conduct a physical examination, analyze social determinants of health, or run a diagnostic test inside the patient's home.

This program lets EMS organizations use their resources well, allowing them to treat more patients at their location so they can focus on true emergencies. This service is available to MVP members across 18 counties in New York through UCM's relationships with 911 centers and EMS organizations across the state. There are plans to expand the service throughout the state.

Furthermore, the Treatment in Place program helps lessen the burden on health systems as hospitals continue to experience capacity and staffing shortages. UCM Digital Health, a virtual care provider, enables MVP's Gia telemedicine platform.

PointClickCare Advances the Transition Toward Value-Based Care with Acquisition of Patient Pattern

PointClickCare | March 17, 2023

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. About PointClickCare PointClickCare is a leading healthcare technology platform enabling meaningful collaboration and access to real‐time insights at every stage of the patient healthcare journey. More than 27,000 long‐term and post‐acute care providers, over 2,800 hospitals and 2,000 ambulatory clinics, every major U.S. health plan across the U.S, and over 75 state and government agencies use PointClickCare, enabling care collaboration and value‐based care delivery for millions across North America.
