Inland Empire Health Plan Selects MedHOK Platform

TAMPA, Fla. – April 2, 2013 – MedHOK, which delivers industry leading actionable healthcare solutions across an integrated cloud-based platform, announced today that Inland Empire Health Plan will deploy its comprehensive platform for care, quality and compliance to enhance patient population management and improve patient care.

“Successfully managing patient populations requires that health plans maintain a very ‘high-touch’ relationship with both their providers and the patients they care for,” said Dr. Bradley Gilbert, Chief Executive Officer, Inland Empire Health Plan. “MedHOK’s software will allow us to enhance this process by improving patient and provider interactions and providing the comprehensive information we need to improve the member experience.”

Located in San Bernardino, Calif., Inland Empire Health Plan (IEHP) is a not-for-profit public health plan serving more than 590,000 residents of Riverside and San Bernardino counties through government-sponsored programs including Medi-Cal, Healthy Kids and a Medicare Advantage Special Needs Program.

“Inland Empire Health Plan is growing rapidly and MedHOK’s platform will become increasingly important as the volume of information that we need to successfully manage our growing patient population rapidly expands,” said IEHP Chief Information Officer Michael Deering.

MedHOK’s single platform for care, quality and compliance, provides payers, pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs), accountable care organizations (ACOs) and integrated health networks with the tools they need to view patient information in real time and make it immediately available across the care continuum. By doing so in a manner that is meaningful to each end user, the MedHOK platform creates actionable healthcare wherein individual providers and integrated delivery systems can proactively close care gaps, comply with federal and state regulations, enhance care management and improve Star, HEDIS® and other quality scores.

Its unique Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) model allows clients to rapidly deploy and easily maintain MedHOK’s scalable solutions, while incurring lower up-front and ongoing costs. Fully NCQA-certified for HEDIS®, Pay for Performance and Disease Management Performance Measures, MedHOK’s software is compliant with CMS and State regulations to ensure consistent application of rules and regulations.

“For a rapidly growing health plan like Inland Empire, selecting a solution that is easily scalable and rapidly deployed is key to success,” said Anil Kottoor, President and CEO, MedHOK. “By utilizing the full array of services provided across our integrated cloud-based platform, Inland Empire will also be well-positioned to improve care management, meet all federal and state mandates and gain a competitive advantage in the marketplace.”
