CDPHP and CapitalCare Medical Group Announce Launch of Acuitas Health

ALBANY, NY--(Marketwired - October 19, 2016) - CDPHP and CapitalCare Medical Group are proud to announce the launch of Acuitas Health, an independent population health services organization that will provide physicians with the tools and resources needed to succeed in a value-based payment environment.

CDPHP president and CEO, Dr. John Bennett, and CapitalCare CEO, Joan Hayner, explain how the partnership came together and how Acuitas will improve the health of the communities it serves. To learn more, please watch the corresponding video.

For nearly a decade, CDPHP and CapitalCare have partnered to achieve a shared mission of improving the quality and affordability of health care for residents in and around the Capital Region. The organizations -- which are philosophically aligned around the goals of value-based care -- have taken that partnership to the next level, creating an organization which will allow physicians to remain independent, while offering patients access to better health, better care, and lower costs.

Acuitas Health provides practices with a turn-key solution needed to succeed in a value-based payment environment. This includes a comprehensive readiness assessment, realignment of staff and workflows, and oftentimes, a total transformation in the way the practice delivers care.

Acuitas Health will embed care managers within physician practices and use sophisticated population health management tools to identify patients with gaps in care or are at high-risk, or rising risk, clinically. Care managers will work with the practice to engage with patients, ensuring that individuals receive the right care, at the right time.

As the healthcare industry continues to evolve, physician practices are facing increased pressure to keep pace with government regulation. Acuitas Health will help physicians prepare for and implement these changes, all while remaining independent.
