FORT WORTH, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 05/20/13 -- Sandlot Solutions, a healthcare information technology company, and Orange Health Solutions, a national provider of full-service risk contract management services, today announce a long-term healthcare IT partnership that will help physicians treat patients more effectively and efficiently. Orange Accountable Care, an ACO subsidiary of Orange Health Solutions, will deploy Sandlot Care Manager, Sandlot Dimensions and Sandlot Metrix. This partnership marks an important milestone for Sandlot Solutions: the first deployment of Sandlot Care Manager. As next-generation care management software, Sandlot's Care Manager is unique in that it works with both clinical and claims data to create personalized care plans for patients and helps clinicians track compliance with them. It also evaluates outcomes for groups of patients in order to monitor trends and improve population health. Sandlot Dimensions is the data warehouse that receives, sorts and stores patient information for providers to access at the point of care. Sandlot Metrix provides health data analytics, identifies gaps in care, and prompts for any necessary actions, or follow-up. For efficiency, Metrix works directly inside the physician's EMR, right at the point of care.
Sandlot Solutions is a key partner in developing the Orange Health Solutions platform, which brings best-in-class, patient-focused technologies together to improve the quality of care and maximize benefits for physician participation in risk-sharing models.
"It's now clear, ACOs are a critical part of the evolving future of healthcare, and we all have a stake in ensuring they succeed in their goal to improve the quality of patient care while reducing costs," said Joe Casper, CEO of Sandlot Solutions. "It is a pleasure to partner with an innovative organization like Orange Health Solutions; we are excited about their vision for healthcare and know that Sandlot will be instrumental in the achievement of Orange's goals to develop an effective way to make risk-sharing models available to physicians and sustainable in the long term."
Orange Accountable Care is the latest organization to leverage Sandlot's fourth-generation technology, joining established partners such as North Texas Specialty Physicians (NTSP) and Plus ACO. This commitment to invest in improved healthcare IT infrastructure and achieving real health information exchange enables partners to better manage and deliver timely, coordinated patient care and demonstrate Meaningful Use.
"We are a company that starts with data, and that's exactly what Sandlot Solutions gives us. The right data, at the right time, broken out exactly how and when physicians need it," said Nicole Bradberry, President and COO of Orange Health Solutions. "Not only will Sandlot Solutions give us the analytics and care management capabilities we need today, their team is constantly thinking ahead to what's next and moving quickly to make it a reality. This is exactly the type of partnership we were looking for to achieve our vision of high-quality patient care delivered in a more efficient, low-cost environment."
Work on the new technology platform is underway: Sandlot Solutions and Orange Health Solutions expect to have the Dimensions solution operational in 60 days with Care Manager to follow shortly thereafter. Sandlot Solutions continually seeks to identify and partner with forward-thinking healthcare organizations like Orange Health Solutions to bend the healthcare cost curve and improve the health of patients and communities.
