Toronto (April 23, 2018) — NexJ Health Inc. (“NexJ Health”), a provider of patient-facing solutions for population health management, today announced that they have partnered with HealthTeamWorks, a Colorado-based non-profit that delivers healthcare transformation strategies and resources to practices, groups, and networks nationwide in the US and abroad.
HealthTeamWorks is a nationally recognized leader in healthcare transformation with over 20 years of experience helping medical practices, physician organizations and integrated delivery networks (IDNs) improve their performance in delivering value-based services. Through partnership and innovation, their subject matter expertise and service solutions have helped providers improve clinical quality outcomes, patient experience, and provider vitality, while reducing escalation in per capita cost of medical care.
“NexJ Health and HealthTeamWorks share a commitment and mission to transforming healthcare to a patient-centred, comprehensive and coordinated model, with technology at the core driving this change. As we see US and global markets transition to value-based care, we are thrilled to be collaborating with such an esteemed and accomplished team to advance patient-centred care as foundational to health system transformation” said NexJ Health’s CEO William M. Tatham.
This partnership will play an important role in NexJ Health’s continued growth in US and international markets through access and support from HealthTeamWorks’ network of 13 strategic partners.
“Patient engagement in their own health and health care is essential to improving the health status of any population,” Bert Miuccio, CEO of HealthTeamWorks said. “This engagement also requires a shift in patients’ roles and behaviours to assume personal accountability for their health. In collaboration with NexJ Health – who provide robust patient engagement and population health technologies for both patients and health service providers – we are excited to offer integrated technology and service solutions that patients and providers will both need and use to work towards this change.”
HealthTeamWorks currently supports the transformation of more than 2,300 medical practices in 18 states through their participation in federally-funded innovation pilot programs and via direct client engagements with practice organizations and integrated delivery networks.
NexJ Health and HealthTeamWorks look forward to collaborating to transform more practices to patient-centred, advanced primary care models with patient-facing technologies at the foundation.
