Arcadia Population Health

NEQCA’s population health management programs – such as pharmaceutical cost management and care management support for high-risk patients – have delivered quantifiable benefits for both patients and providers since 2009.

The NEQCA Board of Trustees unanimously voted in 2019 to enhance our Network’s capability to excel in value-based care by adopting the Arcadia population health management platform.

The decision to choose Arcadia followed a comprehensive multi-year review of leading population health tools. Headquartered in Massachusetts, Arcadia has experience connecting to many of the electronic health records in use throughout our Network, including Epic.  Arcadia offers a suite of tools to help us aggregate, analyze and act on data at the point-of-care in ways that will positively impact patients and drive contract value. Additionally, Arcadia is nationally recognized for its best-in-class customer service.

 

Building a robust platform

NEQCA, in collaboration with representatives from our Local Care Organizations (LCOs), has made great strides on its Arcadia implementation journey.  Workgroups have focused on different aspects of the Arcadia adoption, including Care Management, Quality, Data Integration and Reporting.

How Arcadia helps primary care physicians

  • Brings together claims and EHR data
  • Shows summary of performance on each metric
  • Enables comparison to peers
  • Allows drill-down to patient lists to identify and address gaps
    • Quality metrics
    • Risk adjustment
  • Easy access to care management
  • Automated outreach to groups of patients via text and phone
  • Pre-visit planning

How Arcadia helps Local Care Organizations

  • Enables assessment of LCO performance within the NEQCA Network and practice performance within each LCO
  • Helps identify areas of focus for LCOs and individual practices
  • Equips PCPs with patient-level information previously unavailable to them
  • Much shorter claims lag and availability of EHR data reduce discrepancies
