MONTEREY PARK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SynerMed, Inc., a market-leading healthcare platform for government-sponsored healthcare programs in Monterey Park, California, announced today that it has reached 1,000,000 in membership where its beneficiaries extend throughout California.
SynerMed’s new growth is attributed to the increase of patients from the Affordable Care Act and low-income seniors and persons with disabilities who are dually eligible for Medicare and Medi-Cal. In 2014, patients were transferred from a fee-for-service delivery model to a managed care system to ensure continuity of care and greater access to community-based services.
Many low-income patients with chronically complex conditions have greater healthcare needs that often go undiagnosed, due to the lack of service and a fragmented healthcare system.
“We are doing more than just coordinating healthcare, we are humanizing the patient experience,” said SynerMed President and Chief Executive Officer James Mason. “We are adopting new models of care like our Downtown Coordinated Care Center in Los Angeles and the Patient Health Improvement Initiative in San Diego to break down barriers in healthcare by treating the whole person.”
Over the next five years, SynerMed plans to develop complex care models in every market and expand its services to include behavioral health, substance abuse and long-term care programs.
“Increasingly more health systems and physician organizations will assume greater clinical and financial responsibility for managing patients who are at risk,” said Mason. “At SynerMed, this has been our approach all along.”
SynerMed coordinates care through its purpose-built technology CONNECT, a virtual healthcare system that allows its network of 10,000 physicians to provide value-based care for patients throughout California.
