Improving quality and financial performance through better care coordination

The paradigm shift to value-based care has been a monumental transformation for the industry.

Although born out of good intentions, transitioning to a world where providers have to band together to achieve a coordinated positive outcome and share the rewards, has put a lot of strain on independent providers. Today, most providers bear all of the financial risk for spending more time to do what’s right for their patients because many high-value actions are not compensated.

At Stellar Health, we are on a mission to help providers efficiently keep their patients healthy.  We influence the way primary care physicians engage with their patients on a daily-basis by providing them with the information and incentives for improving quality of care. Our point-of-care platform ingests claims, EMR, pharmacy, and lab data to identify and alert care teams in real-time to unfulfilled care and coding gaps. When doctors and staff follow through on these tasks, they earn additional payments on top of RVUs, finally making those extra chores create value for them and their patients.

By bridging the incentive gap between providers and insurers, we’re able to improve collaboration, and take the burden off of physicians so they can ultimately focus on what matters most: providing the best care for their patients.
