HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CareAllies, a Cigna (NYSE: CI) company, was named the top-rated Value-Based Care (VBC) Consultant for Physician Practices for a second consecutive year by Black Book Market Research, an independent health care market research company. The rating measures client satisfaction across five VBC functions: clinical transformation, financial transformation, care coordination, accountable care contracting and risk share models.
“CareAllies works side-by-side with providers to accelerate the transition to value-based models of care and deliver more personalized, quality care for the people they serve,” said Beckie Croes, senior vice president of provider engagement and management services, CareAllies. “We earned this top-rating from providers for the second consecutive year because we are delivering differentiated value for our customers. Our consultative approach identifies the right combination of innovative solutions, actionable data and analytics, and expertise needed to drive change and ensure success in a value-based market.”
Ratings are based on a national survey of nearly 2,600 providers about advisory outcomes, client experience and satisfaction across 20 consultant-centric key performance indicators. CareAllies received the top rating in 12 of 20 performance areas this year, including:
- Strategic Services Options and Delivery Alternatives
- Innovations in Consultative Approaches
- Trust, Reliability, Transparency, and Confidentiality
- Return-on-Investment, Engagement Deliverables, and Quality
This competitive analysis is part of Black Book’s annual report detailing the state of the health care technology advisory and consultants industry. Notable trends for provider organizations this year include lack of internal resources and related strategy to be successful in VBC.
“Medical practices are seeking consultants to push them through the value-based care transitions and manage long-term VBC health plan contracts in multi-payer environments,” said Doug Brown, president, Black Book. “Consultative approaches that emphasize physician engagement, culture change, actionable data and advanced population health analytics are producing very motivated physician organizations as they move from volume to value. Many physician practices are not succeeding linearly through the transition towards alternative payment models and do not have the expertise internally, thus the meteoric rise in the demand for experienced consultative engagements.”
CareAllies helps provider groups around the country improve quality of care and affordability, enhance the patient and provider experience, and thrive in value-based care models. CareAllies’ multi-payer solutions include provider engagement services, Accountable Care Organization (ACO) support, practice transformation services and home-based care delivery services.
