FRISCO, Texas--()--ZeOmega, Inc., the premier provider of software solutions for population healthcare management, announced today that Lovelace Health Plan, part of Lovelace Health System of Albuquerque, N.M., has successfully implemented ZeOmega’s Jiva™ software solution as part of its integrated care management strategy to improve the overall health of approximately 200,000 people across New Mexico.
“We have been able to see an immediate gain in efficiencies due to Jiva’s workflow automation capabilities. Because of the member-centricity inherent within Jiva and via the provider portal, members, our plan case managers and provider staff can all now access and collaborate on the member’s care plan.”
Lovelace Health Plan implemented a comprehensive set of Jiva capabilities covering not only core care management modules such as Utilization Management, Case Management, Disease Management, Maternity Management, and Wellness Management, but also Jiva’s provider portal, rules engine, and several integrations such as claims and other third party vendors such as Healthwise, Emmi Solutions, Elsevier/MEDai, and Medi-Span, a division of Wolters Kluwer Health. ZeOmega will host the solution for Lovelace at its SOC 2 compliant data center.
“The breadth of Jiva’s capabilities we have deployed will provide us with a solid foundation on which we can accelerate our population healthcare management programs,” says John Iacuone, M.D., associate chief medical officer for Lovelace Health Plan. “We have been able to see an immediate gain in efficiencies due to Jiva’s workflow automation capabilities. Because of the member-centricity inherent within Jiva and via the provider portal, members, our plan case managers and provider staff can all now access and collaborate on the member’s care plan.” Dr. Iacuone continues, “Further, Jiva has enabled us to enhance our member engagement by integrating health content that enables providers and members to make the right healthcare decisions.”
“We are pleased to have implemented Jiva successfully for Lovelace Health Plan. Integrated delivery systems like Lovelace Health System will play a crucial role in the ensuing years as they will be best positioned to deploy accountable care paradigms and demonstrate how accountability can improve health outcomes while reducing costs,” says Nandini Rangaswamy, executive vice president of ZeOmega. “The discipline and collaboration between the two teams during this implementation was incredible and contributed to the success of the implementation. The solution will be hosted in ZeOmega’s data center and will enable Lovelace Health Plan to leverage Jiva’s capabilities to the fullest without having to incur the overhead of maintaining the solution in their network.”
“Our work on deploying Jiva for our population health management program has just begun,” concludes Dr. Iacuone. “We’re planning several initiatives that will leverage Jiva’s capabilities to build a sophisticated and effective population health management program for our members.”
