Panoramic Health Solidifies Position as Largest Physician-Led Participant in Medicare’s Kidney Care Choices ModelJanuary 24, 2023
TEMPE, Ariz., January 24, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Panoramic Health℠, the leading integrated value-based kidney care platform in the country, announced significant growth as a participant in Medicare's Comprehensive Kidney Care Contracting (CKCC) program within the Kidney Care Choices Model.
In its commitment to improving outcomes and access to holistic care coordination at reduced costs for patients suffering from CKD-ESKD, Panoramic Health tripled the number of aligned Medicare beneficiaries under its care to more than 27,000 patients and added 14 new Kidney Contracting Entities (KCEs) for the 2023 CKCC Performance Year. Panoramic Health is the largest CKCC participant not affiliated with a Large Dialysis Organization (LDO), accounting for nearly 40% of non-LDO lives in Professional and Global CKCC program options. Panoramic Health kicks off 2023 supporting 18 KCEs total, 14 KCEs in the highest tier Global Risk Option and 4 KCEs in the Professional Model.
The Panoramic Health platform drives improved outcomes and lowers the total cost of care for patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) through unparalleled integration and alignment with nephrology practices, holistic approach to patient care across sites of service, and advanced data and analytics. The integrated capabilities and superior care coordination slow disease progression through data-driven early intervention, improve CKD management, increase optimal dialysis transitions, reduce hospitalizations, and lower hospital readmissions.
"Our remarkable growth in the CKCC program last year is a testament to the unique capabilities that position Panoramic Health's platform as the superior value-based kidney care platform for patients, providers, and payers," said Rajiv Poduval, M.D., FASN, CEO and co-founder of Panoramic Health. "I look forward to another year of growth as we keep nephrologists at the helm of care delivery and further our mission to transform kidney care to better serve patients with CKD and ESKD."
Panoramic Health's novel approach to value-based patient care coordination puts nephrologists at the forefront of care delivery, leading to patient engagement rates above 70%, 2-3 times greater than non-nephrologist-led care coordination vendors. In 2022, when looking at patients in the top half of the population for clinical complexity, engaged patients saw as high as 36% fewer admissions and 22% fewer readmissions compared to non-engaged peers, which is attributable to the unique physician-led model. This engagement also led to a rate of planned dialysis starts in the top quartile of all providers nationally compared to Medicare-published benchmarks.
"Panoramic Health's distinct value-based care capabilities drive superior patient engagement rates, optimal starts, and reduced hospitalizations, ultimately delivering better outcomes for patients with CKD and ESKD," said Dave Miller, Vice President of Value-Based Care. "Our physician-led care model allows us to implement improved care coordination at every level, as we have a direct connection to the patient-provider relationship which is integral in empowering patients to take an active role in their care plans."
