Summit Health Management Partners with Arcadia.io for Enterprise-Wide Population Health Analytics Platform

Strategic partnership to boost SHM’s progressive Accountable Care and Value-Based strategy for physician groups, patients

Berkeley Heights, NJ and Burlington, MASS. (April 11, 2019) – Summit Health Management (SHM), which offers a  physician-led, professionally-managed model of management services for Summit Medical Group in New Jersey and physician practices across the US, and KLAS-rated Arcadia.io today announced that SHM will be working with Arcadia to drive value-based outcomes for health care provider groups. SHM entered into a multi-year contract with Arcadia to use its enterprise population health management platform and integrated tools for benchmarking, clinical outcome improvement, and financial performance.

Arcadia Analytics will support SHM’s independent physician-led multispecialty medical practices which include Summit Medical Group in New Jersey, Summit Medical Group Oregon and Summit Medical Group Arizona. With over 900 providers in New Jersey, Summit Medical Group, P.A. is one of the largest physician-owned multi-specialty groups in the country.

“Summit Health Management manages the cost and quality of care for over 115,000 patients currently attributed in ACO contracts in New Jersey, and we’ve exceeded benchmarks in several value-based contracts,” said Jamie Reedy, MD, MPH, Chief of Population Health. “Our mastery of developing effective clinical programs, meaningful analytics and comprehensive provider and patient engagement programs has been essential to our sustained successful ACO performance. To provide accountable care in an innovative, scalable fashion, we are accelerating our ability to take on better value-based contracts.”

SHM embarked on a multi-year search for a comprehensive solution that could scale to the needs of a growing physician group and ensure the quality, accuracy, and insights of its data analytics capabilities.

“Over the course of our search, we saw Arcadia launch new products, and form deep partnerships with their customers to develop innovative solutions,” said Dr. Reedy. “Arcadia has shown from the outset of our discussions that they were committed to us and our vision.  The combined strengths of their people and platform made us feel very comfortable with Arcadia as our partner.”

The partnership with Arcadia will help SHM successfully execute on value-based care initiatives as it continues to expand across the country, enabling care teams to fundamentally transform patient management and care. Arcadia Analytics will provide near-real time reporting and analytics for SHM’s administrators and actionable insights at the point of care for 1,000+ providers.

“Pioneering organizations like Summit Health Management are leaders in value-based care,” said Arcadia CEO Sean Carroll. “With that, the technology that they select has to enable them to succeed as they take on increasing risk in a complex market. Extensive due diligence is more critical than ever. Our platform helps our innovative, high-performing partners reach their most ambitious goals, and we are thrilled to help make SHM’s long-term vision a reality.”
