Wexford PHO Moves to SPH Analytics for Improved Population Health Management

Technology helps better manage quality and cost across multiple payers for 500-provider Northern Michigan network

SPH Analytics, a leader in healthcare analytics and population health management, today announced that Wexford Physician Hospital Organization (PHO) has successfully deployed SPH’s Population Care all-payer population health management solution to achieve its quality and cost goals within the framework of value-based care. Use of Population Care is benefitting more than 77,000 patients covered by value-based contracts across the 500-provider Physician Hospital Organization in Northern Michigan by streamlining care processes, monitoring quality, and helping providers identify and close gaps in care for improved patient outcomes.

“We saw it as inevitable that our payer partners would ask us to start participating in contracts with downside risk. We knew that to succeed in that environment, we would need tools to help us manage our most complex, high-cost patients proactively.,” said Kim Speese, Executive Director of Wexford PHO. “We chose the SPH Analytics solution for its flexibility to handle requirements from any commercial or government payer, as well as its ease of use at the point of care.  We are already seeing the benefits of proactive care management that will position us for the future of healthcare.”
