|Jun 30|magazine16 min read

BURLINGTON, Mass., June 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Arcadia (arcadia.io), a widely-recognized leader in population health management, today announced its partnership with Castell (CastellHealth.com), the new comprehensive healthcare platform company from Intermountain Healthcare that elevates value-based capabilities for providers, payers, healthcare systems and accountable care organizations (ACOs). Castell selected Arcadia Analytics as the healthcare technology and analytics foundation to support its comprehensive approach to helping organizations accelerate the transition from volume- to value-based systems of care while improving provider satisfaction, patient outcomes and affordability.  

Castell: A Best-In-Class Health Platform Company

Launched in 2019, Castell enables healthcare organizations around the country to access the care delivery models and technology that have been successfully developed and tested by Intermountain Healthcare, one of the nation's leading health systems. This includes digital tools and analytics, a proven value-based clinical care model that reimagines how primary care is delivered, care pathways and clinical best practices.

"Healthcare is complex and everchanging. We see, even more so now as the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds, how important value-based care models are to creating stability within the healthcare industry and delivering immediate benefit to patients in their time of need," said Castell's chief operating officer Dave Dirks. "Castell is designed to empower others as they shift to value and create future-proof care processes. Arcadia Analytics supplements our work in meaningful ways that make supporting our clients actionable and relevant. We look forward to all we can do together."

"Castell is at the forefront of the industry in using technology to accelerate performance in value-based care," said Arcadia chief executive officer Sean Carroll. "We are excited to partner with an organization that combines proven clinical and operational insights from Intermountain with a fresh vision for engaging physicians and patients to improve outcomes."

Arcadia Analytics: Population Health Management at Scale

Arcadia Analytics is used by some of the largest health plans and health systems in the country to improve value-based care performance, with over 93 million patient lives measured nationally. Castell chose Arcadia Analytics not only to support the care of their current population of 790,000 patients, but also to enable ongoing national growth.

"To really improve patient outcomes and keep costs more affordable, we knew we needed to deliver analytics that made care delivery more efficient, more enjoyable, and helped our network know what actions to take to drive future outcomes," said Castell's chief analytics officer Andrew Sorenson.  "We knew Arcadia was the right partner to catalyze our ability to ingest, analyze, and act on data at scale, but we were surprised by just how fast we were able to launch Arcadia Analytics and how easy it was to configure their platform for our initiatives."

Webinar July 1 on COVID-19, Recovery, and Beyond: Lessons Learned for the Future of Care

When the COVID-19 pandemic began to affect their patient population in early 2020, Castell leaders responded by accelerating key initiatives like their care traffic control program and omni-channel care delivery.  On July 1 at 3:30 p.m. EST, Castell's chief analytics officer Andrew Sorenson, MS, and medical director Will Daines, MD, will  explain how lessons learned from COVID-19 will shape the way they deliver patient care and physician support going forward during recovery and beyond. 

"Arcadia responded rapidly to the COVID-19 pandemic with a set of capabilities that enabled us to quickly roll out new care coordination workflows," said Sorenson.  "We were able to identify and engage high-risk patients remotely in ways that had significant, meaningful impacts on their health."

Castell leaders will also explain how they used Arcadia's COVID-19 Surveillance and Engagement Toolkit during the COVID-19 pandemic, and how they plan to use Arcadia Analytics to support reopening and recovery. Learn more about the webinar and register at arcadia.io
