MILPITAS, CA / ORLANDO, FL – November 15, 2016 – Quantros, Inc., the health care industry’s leading provider of performance analytics supporting providers, employers and other payers, and the Florida Health Care Coalition (FLHCC), a state leader actively engaged in transforming health care throughout Florida and nationwide, have agreed to utilize Quantros’ CareChex® hospital quality rankings and CareTracks® provider performance profiles to support the initiatives and value-based programs of the Coalition.
“As our employer members move from volume to value-based purchasing, we’re very pleased to support them with additional data and information to assess quality and guide decision-making,” says Karen van Caulil, Ph.D., president and CEO, FLHCC.
As a new membership benefit, FLHCC employer members will receive reports from Quantros’ CareChex® and CareTracks® solutions to evaluate the clinical quality and utilization performance of hospitals, health systems and physicians in Florida, across a host of clinically-adjusted and risk-adjusted outcomes.
Annie Callanan, CEO, Quantros, says, “Employers, providers, insurers and consumers all need a better line of sight into quality and performance in order to realize the true benefits of value-based purchasing and contracting models. We support FLHCC as well as other business coalitions on health throughout the country that are seeking higher quality care, better outcomes and lower costs.”
The shift from volume to value based upon quality is gaining strong momentum in value-based benefits design. According to a recent Willis Towers Watson study of 600 U.S. employers with more than 1,000 employees each, 45 percent of employers are giving employees access to Centers of Excellence (COEs) that have high quality ratings in specialties such as cardiac or orthopedic services and infertility, up 37 percent from 2015.
Quantros is a leading provider of software and services to advance health care quality and safety performance. Our Software-as a-Service (SaaS)-based applications help thousands of hospitals, retail pharmacies and some of the nation’s largest health systems to capture actionable intelligence they can use to improve outcomes, reduce risks and to reinforce their commitments to delivering safer, higher-quality value-based care. Health care purchasers also rely on our solutions to help identify superior value for their health care expenditures. For more information, visit http://www.quantros.com.
