Partnership Broadens Florida Based Organization
JACKSONVILLE, FL, FEBRUARY 6th, 2018: The Florida Association of ACOs (FLAACOs), the premier professional organization for Accountable Care Organizations and value-based healthcare leaders throughout Florida, announces today a partnership with Welltality. Welltality delivers a software plus service solution for scheduling and coordinating care. This partnership will promote a best in class service for expanding providers ability to deliver a comprehensive annual wellness visit to all their patients, including scheduling any appropriate follow-up care. Nicole Bradberry, CEO of FLAACOs says “Many ACO’s struggle with managing attribution and the loss of revenue due to patient churn. Typically, 25% of patients churn in and out of an ACO quarterly. These patients tend to be those that have the least amount of cost so it is important to retain them for benchmark credit. We have partnered with Welltality because their service solution solves for this problem without asking providers to do more work.” Welltality’s service solution is unique in that it combines state of the art technology plus medical assistant extenders, where needed, to see patients in their providers office. Their solution, in addition to improving ACO attribution churn, improves HEDIS and other quality measures while delivering high-quality preventative care to patients on behalf of their doctors.
“FLAACOs is the organization providing ACOs in the state of Florida the tools, resources, and relationships to be successful. We are so pleased to partner with them to help their members fulfil this critical piece of quality preventative care for Florida’s large Medicare population.” Matt Kane, CEO - Welltality
FLAACOs, also known as the Florida Association of Accountable Care Organization, mission is to provide members a vehicle to collaborate, ensuring that each healthcare organization grows and thrives. The Florida-based association aligns goals to help member ACOs shift physician incentives and improve health-care outcomes across the state. FLAACOs provides a voice for the accountable care marketplace and its participating providers, payers, and individual physicians. The goal of FLAACOs is to provide advocacy and support to all Florida accountable care organizations so that together they can become the health-care models of the future.

At Welltality we know how hard it is to not only get patients to the Medicare Annual Wellness visit but how hard it is to find the time for the doctor to spend 30 to 45 minutes with the patients. Welltality is a complete turn-key, software + service solution to creating revenue and capturing quality scores through the Medicare Annual Wellness Visit. Our software-based health risk assessment includes all the questions that are required by CMS such as functional and cognitive assessments, psychological or behavioral risks, medication adherence and activities of daily living including fall risk assessments, whisper tests, depression and alcohol screenings and so much more. Our goal is help providers achieve 75 to 85% AWV utilization while improving patient care and ensuring compliance with our software generated personalized preventative care plan. www.welltalityhealth.com
