ST. LOUIS — Lumeris, a pioneer in population health management solutions headquartered in St. Louis, announced today that it has been named the top-rated value-based care managed services provider in the area of client-reported impact on the Triple Aim by KLAS Research. Lumeris was one of four rated firms that offers both value-based care consulting and managed services.
The November 2015 KLAS performance report “Value-Based Care: Making the Shift: Who Can Help?,” evaluated 13 firms based on thousands of interviews with healthcare providers. The report examined the impact and performance of firms that offer value-based consulting and managed services for their support and solutions to assist in the transformation to value-based care. Factors that were taken into consideration for the development of the report included program type, ability to aggregate data types, experience and capabilities, preparation for future risk, ability to impact key outcomes, and performance.
According to the KLAS report, “Lumeris stands out by having a consistently high impact on valued-based care delivery by helping providers achieve a complete patient profile and revolutionize the way they treat and view patients in the value-driven environment.”
Lumeris focuses on operations, business model alignment, physician and consumer engagement, and enhanced care delivery, all backed by a scalable model that can be implemented in any geography, for any population to help any healthcare organization achieve results.
