BJC HealthCare (BJC), one of the largest nonprofit healthcare organizations in the U.S., has implemented the Jiva population health management solution from ZeOmega Inc. to enhance care coordination, improve patient engagement and increase the quality of care for 40,000 patients in the BJC Accountable Care Organization (ACO).
BJC, which includes 12 hospitals and multiple community health locations, serves the greater St. Louis, southern Illinois and mid-Missouri regions. BJC sought a solution to help generate measurable and sustainable improvements in care quality, cost-effectiveness, and patient satisfaction. Jiva will help the BJC ACO better manage care transitions, proactively identify and engage patients most in need of interventions, and integrate disease management components — including care analytics, care plans and configurable assessments.
“BJC has long been on the leading edge of healthcare innovation, and we are proud that Jiva has joined BJC on its journey into the value-based care future of healthcare,” said Nandini Rangaswamy, ZeOmega’s executive vice president and chief strategy officer. “We are also pleased that Jiva was implemented relatively quickly, which is a credit to BJC’s preparedness and partnering spirit as we worked together to meet key milestones. In Jiva, BJC has a solution that meets today’s requirements while being flexible enough to meet the long-term changes and challenges that lie ahead for healthcare providers. We look forward to a long and value-creating relationship with BJC.”
