ST. LOUIS — JANUARY 5, 2017 — Lumeris, a pioneer in population health management solutions headquartered in St. Louis, announced today that it was again named the top-rated, full-service value-based care managed services firm by KLAS Research.
The December 2016 KLAS Performance Report: “Value-Based Care Managed Services: Technology-Enabled Services to Support Your Transformation to Value” evaluated 11 firms based on interviews with healthcare providers. Lumeris was assessed in the full-service category with five other firms. The report examined the impact and performance of firms that provide value-based care managed services for their support and solutions to assist in the transformation to value-based care.
Lumeris was named the top-performing full-service firm overall and in the areas of effectiveness in value-based care technology, sales and contracting, service and support, overall satisfaction, and desire to buy again.
In addition, 100 percent of Lumeris’ clients reported they would purchase services again and state that their future plans include partnering with Lumeris in either the same capacity they currently are or expanding their partnership.
According to the KLAS report, “Of all the full-service firms, Lumeris best drives outcomes thanks to robust tools that show claims data, ER utilization, uncaptured diagnoses and payer group costs. Additionally, Lumeris helps clients identify future challenges patients may face.”
“We are honored to be recognized by KLAS as the top-rated, value-based care managed services firm in several areas,” said Art Glasgow, president and chief operating officer of Lumeris. “Our clients have placed their trust in us as a result of our team’s hard work, dedication and innovation for more than a decade.
