Program helps patients overcome social determinants of health, increase clinical treatment adherence
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (June 27, 2023) – Lovelace Health System today announced a partnership with CareHarmony, a leading AI-powered care coordination solutions provider. CareHarmony’s human-driven, machine learning-enhanced Chronic Care Management (CCM) program will be deployed in Lovelace facilities to bolster care delivery and support value-based care initiatives.
“Our partnership with CareHarmony will enable clinical teams to improve management of chronic health conditions, especially in people with multiple illnesses,” said David Schultz, CEO of Lovelace Heath System. “This technology allows us to proactively identify patients who may need additional help outside our clinics and provide them with support navigating social determinants of health by improving access to healthy food, transportation and affordable medication – issues that can really impact quality of life.”
CareHarmony’s innovative care coordination solutions aim to improve patient care in a holistic manner that accounts for both the clinical and social aspects of health. Medicare beneficiaries participating in the program will be matched with a care coordinator to help navigate their care plan and coordinate additional needs to improve their quality of life. Patients will receive assistance scheduling appointments, explanations about medication details, assistance coordinating home health visits, help identifying community resources and support services, and be connected with education resources and more.
CareHarmony will work with Lovelace providers to identify potential enrollees and contact individuals about the enrollment processes. Patients may also self-enroll by calling 505-727-4497.
