HARTFORD, Conn. & ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CareCentrix, the leader in managing patient care to the home, announced today that it has signed a 3-year agreement for a sleep management program with Evolent Health, a technology-enabled operating partner to leading health care systems undergoing value-based care transformation. Sleep management is a large and growing challenge with 44 million adults suffering from some form of sleep-disordered breathing. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), the most common disorder, is as prevalent as diabetes and asthma, affecting more than 18 million adults.
Evolent entered the agreement with CareCentrix on behalf of one of its large health care system clients to help coordinate treatment of sleep disorders for the system’s patients. The CareCentrix Sleep Management program, the only complete end-to-end sleep management solution, is designed to give patients the greatest opportunity for therapeutic success when being treated for OSA and other sleep disorders. Successful treatment can result in better sleep, enhanced quality of life and a reduction in other health-related issues.
“Our program allows us to test and manage sleep disorders in the most cost-effective and patient-friendly way – at home,” said John Driscoll, Chief Executive Officer of CareCentrix. “Not only are we able to save critical health care dollars by ensuring the most appropriate care, we’re also very proud of the 94 percent satisfaction rate we have with the patients we work with through our sleep program.”
“Our agreement with CareCentrix is directly aligned with our goal of integrating the latest care innovations into our comprehensive population health management offering,” said Dr. Elizabeth Malko, Evolent’s Executive Vice President of Clinical Transformation and Operations. “We are glad to be working with CareCentrix in our effort to transform care delivery through solutions that provide exceptional value to our system partners, their care teams and their patients.”
