Mike Long, CEO of Lumeris, Accepts Award in New Category at HIMSS 2016 Award Ceremony
Last evening at the 2015/2016 Best in KLAS Awards Reception, Lumeris, the pioneer in population health management solutions headquartered in St. Louis, received the award for 2015/2016 Best in KLAS for Value-Based Care Managed Services. This is the first year an award in the value-based category was given, and Lumeris ranked highest.
The “2015/2016 Best in KLAS Software & Services” value-based care managed services award category focused on: sales and contracting; implementation and training; and services and support. In a separate KLAS report, “Value-Based Care, Making the Shift: Who Can Help?” released in November, Lumeris was the top-rated value-based care managed services provider based on feedback received from Lumeris’ clients.
“The healthcare industry is making a massive transition to value-based care,” said Mike Long, CEO of Lumeris. “Increasingly, many health systems, payers and physician groups are realizing the risk of this transition can be mitigated and the benefits accelerated by partnering with an experienced value-based care managed services company.”
A Best in KLAS designation is awarded to companies whose solutions have the “broadest operational and clinical impact on healthcare organizations,” according to the 2015/2016 KLAS report. This serves as yet another validation of the dramatic impact a partnership with Lumeris can have on companies adopting population health management.
Lumeris focuses on operations, business model alignment, physician and consumer engagement, and enhanced care delivery. All of which are backed by a scalable model that can be implemented in any geography, for any population, to help any healthcare organization achieve extraordinary clinical and financial outcomes combined with increased physician and consumer satisfaction.
