Black Book Rankings today released the 2014 Black Book™ "Top Ranked
Financial Services and Software Vendors, Value-Based Care and
Accountable Care Organizations (ACO)" survey, ranking Conifer Health
Solutions as the No. 1 provider of value-based care solutions to
Medicare and commercial ACOs.
Black Book™ evaluated leading healthcare service providers from the
point of view of the user/client. Respondents gave Conifer Health high
marks for its expertise in end-to-end financial ACO support functions,
including claims reimbursement payments, capitation and risk
stratification/management, cost accounting utilization performance, and
payer/provider connectivity and interoperability. According to Black
Book™, more than 600 ACOs participated in the evaluation.
"We are always honored to be recognized as a top performer in the
healthcare industry," said Megan North, president of Conifer Health
Solutions' Value-Based Care business unit. "The Black Book results not
only affirm Conifer Health's pioneering experience with accountable care
organizations, but also that healthcare leaders have a clear preference
for a knowledgeable, single-source partner."
The survey found that 86 percent of all hospital CFOs and 90 percent of
ACO executives agree that without a strong financial solutions vendor to
provide value-based reimbursement software, outsourced services and
support, and consulting, they will be forced to opt out of many key
risk-based contract opportunities.
The results of the Black Book™ survey reflect Conifer Health's 20
years of expertise developing andimplementing value-based care
services and solutions for nearly 300 clients. In addition to Medicare
and commercial ACOs, Conifer Health's clients include clinical
integration networks, full risk-bearing providers, hospitals, health
systems, physicians and self-funded employers.
Conifer Health's No. 1 Black Book™ ranking follows recent accolades for
the Value-Based Care business unit including recognition as an early
leader in population health management, as well as receipts of NCQA
certification and URAC
The Financial Services and Software survey, which was released today, is
the first in a three-part series of ACO Infrastructure surveys.
Subsequent Black Book™ surveys will review Clinical Integration and
Support and Business Intelligence and Analytics.
