Providers to Use Stellar Health Platform to Improve Quality in Value-Based Care

NEW YORK and WELLESLEY, Mass.Oct. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Stellar Health (“Stellar”), a rapidly growing value-based healthcare technology company headquartered in New York City, announced today that it will be expanding its network by partnering with Harvard Pilgrim Health Care. The partnership will bring Stellar Health’s value-based care (“VBC”) platform to New England.

“At Harvard Pilgrim, we are empowering our network to succeed under value-based care models. The partnership with Stellar Health will help us align with our providers while improving the quality of care to our members,” said William Graham, Senior Vice President, Medicare Business for Harvard Pilgrim. “The Stellar Health platform supports primary care practices in delivering better care at a lower cost and rewards them for improvement in real time.”

Stellar’s easy-to-use platform encourages VBC by pushing meaningful, actionable insights right to the end users such as, providers, practice managers, registered nurses, and medical assistants. By tracking quality data and actions, Stellar helps primary care providers achieve value-based goals for their patients and rewards them with real-time incentives.

“We are extremely proud to collaborate with Harvard Pilgrim Health Care. They recognize the importance of quality and value-based care for improving patient health outcomes and we’re thrilled to have them use our platform to further engage their providers in VBC,” said Michael Meng, Co-Founder and CEO of Stellar Health. “In New England, we have already seen many provider groups engage us on driving value and welcome many more to reach out if this is of interest.”

Harvard Pilgrim will support Stellar’s point-of-care platform with a select number of providers in New England to focus on improving quality of care, lowering costs, and driving better patient health outcomes across Harvard Pilgrim’s Medicare Advantage beneficiaries. One of these provider groups, Mid-State Health Center (“Mid-State”), will be leveraging Stellar Health’s technology and services to continue to expand their ability to deliver high-quality, patient-centered primary care in New Hampshire.

“At Mid-State, we are on a mission to provide access to high-quality primary care to the communities we serve,” explained Robert MacLeod, CEO of Mid-State Health Center. “The partnership with Stellar Health and Harvard Pilgrim Health Care allows our providers to have the resources they need at the point of care to deliver the highest quality of care to our patients so they can lead healthier lives.”

Core Physicians (“Core”), another major provider of primary care services in New Hampshire will also be using the Stellar platform to help improve the health of individuals and families they serve.

Debra Cresta, President of Core Physicians shares, “Core Physicians values its partnership and relationship with Harvard Pilgrim and this extension/broadening of the partnership to include Stellar Health is exciting. Core Physicians has been on a journey of improving quality and value for the populations we serve for several years, and this new partnership strengthens our resolve to continue to move away from fee-for-service to a reformed payment model.”

“At Core Physicians our goal is to provide the right care for the patient, at the right time and place. We are committed to providing high-quality, high-value care at Core Physicians,” further states Dr. Melanie Lanier, Chief Medical Officer of Core Physicians. “The opportunity to enhance our ability to demonstrate this value through our partnership with Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and Stellar Health is welcomed and will invariably benefit Harvard Pilgrim, Core, and most importantly our patients as we all strive to migrate to a system that awards quality over quantity.”

Stellar works closely with their valued partners to build new relationships with providers that could benefit from the platform. This partnership underscores a commitment by Harvard Pilgrim to deliver innovative and easy-to-use value-based resources.
