Access MediQuip And Osler Health IPA/Osler Health Management Sign Agremeent To Deliver Cost-Effective Quality Care For Surgeries Involving Implants

LAKE MARY, Fla., April 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Access MediQuip, the nation's largest and leading innovator in surgical and implant management solutions, today announced an agreement with Osler Health IPA/Osler Health Management to provide quality-driven surgical bundles and pay-for-performance programs.

The surgical bundle will be coordinated via Osler's national primary-care driven independent practice association (IPA) and delivered to Osler's growing surgical network. Osler is expanding to a national network with a goal of 150,000 physicians from all specialties over the next four years from its east coast base. All providers are linked through a population health management system designed by MDclick. This comprehensive network is coordinated with employers and health plans.

In addition to its proprietary surgical bundle program, Access MediQuip will procure the implants for Osler Health's surgical network and will provide its Surgical and Implant Management Solution (SIMS) to improve quality and lower cost.  Osler Health IPA currently is active in New Jersey, New York and Florida.

Dr. Thomas S. Bellavia, CEO, Osler Health IPA, said, "Working with Access MediQuip to manage the quality and costs of surgeries involving implants is a critical component in our mission to deliver quality care at optimal cost. This allows us to put physicians in full control of their patients' care, which is critical in today's accountable care environment."

"As the management service organization for Osler Health IPA, we needed a national partner with the expertise, data and analytical capabilities to get the job done," said James Doulgeris, CEO, Osler Health Management.  "Access MediQuip's abilities to bundle surgical services effectively, provide quality and safety platforms for patients, build and integrate innovative software solutions with our EHR, and effectively align surgeons made it the only choice for our national expansion."

Dr. Prakash Patel, CEO, Access MediQuip, said, "The face of health care in America is dramatically changing.  Health care costs must be inexorably linked to measured and delivered quality, benefitting the patient first and foremost, as well as providers.   Access MediQuip has been in the forefront of this change.  Through our services utilized at national health care companies such as Humana, Cigna, WellPoint and Aetna, and now through this national association with Osler Health IPA, we are poised to further drive cost-effective care. This undertaking is another step toward helping ensure patients obtain the right treatment with the right implant at the right time and in the right location."
