IRVING, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#CEO–Answer Health strives to improve care in all areas and offer patients the best outcomes possible. By systematically supporting adherence to clinical pathways and performance standards, Answer Health helps ensure their patients are receiving the highest quality, most appropriate level of care. To support their mission and standards, Answer Health has successfully deployed a population health management platform from Lightbeam Health Solutions.
With Lightbeam, Answer Health is managing nine Medicare and commercial contracts totaling over 90,000 at-risk patients. They are using Lightbeam’s population health management platform to:
