TriWest Healthcare Alliance to Open Operations Center in Nashville, Tennessee (21.08.2015)
TriWest Healthcare Alliance will open a facility in Davidson County, Tennessee. The facility will serve the community health care needs of our nations’ veterans.

TriWest will invest $1.2 million to open the Nashville Operations Center, creating 250 new jobs.

The company administers the VA’s Patient-Centered Community Care program and the Veterans Choice Program. The Nashville Operations Center will allow the company to keep up with a significant increase in health care requests as more Veterans become eligible for the VCP.

The Nashville Operations Center will help serve veterans in 28 states and will serve as a traditional call center. Key functions will include: processing health care authorizations approved by VA, inbound and outbound telephone correspondence with veterans and health care providers, as well as scheduling appointments by phone.

“TriWest is grateful for the opportunity to strengthen our footprint in Nashville to serve our nation’s veterans here and across 28 states,” David McIntyre, TriWest Healthcare Alliance President/CEO, said. “The VECI initiative is one we are proud to stand behind and it is our distinct privilege to serve America’s veterans right here in Music City.”

“I am proud to welcome TriWest Healthcare Alliance to Tennessee,” Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd said. “TriWest’s commitment to increasing the number of education and employment opportunities for veterans perfectly complements our goal of becoming the most aligned state in the nation when it comes to matching workforce development with employer needs. I look forward to TriWest’s presence in Tennessee and their continued success.”

“We appreciate TriWest Healthcare Alliance’s decision to invest in Nashville and add 250 jobs here,” Nashville Mayor Karl Dean said. “As the capital of the health care sector in the U.S. and the center of innovative leadership in the industry, Nashville is the perfect place for TriWest to locate its operations. With more than 20 colleges and universities in the area and many veterans who are transitioning to the civilian workforce out of Fort Campbell and other military facilities, TriWest will find a deep and talented workforce here.”

“We’ve seen from data that the presence of skilled and trainable military veterans in our workforce is a highly regarded asset we use to help Middle Tennessee companies grow and to recruit new jobs,” Ralph Schulz, President and CEO, Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce, said. “We’re grateful to TriWest Healthcare Alliance for recognizing the ability of veterans to help fellow veterans access the healthcare services they need.”
Digital health startup Grand Rounds raises $55 mln in funding (20.08.2015)
U.S. digital health startup Grand Rounds, which connects patients with medical experts mainly for a second opinion, said it had raised $55 million in new capital.

Grand Rounds' app and website connect patients in more than 120 countries with doctors, surgeons and other specialists in over 110 U.S. institutions.

The company, whose customers include Comcast Corp, Costco Wholesale Corp and Evernote, said on Thursday it would use the funds to expand its technology, care team and analytics platform.

The latest round of financing brings Grand Rounds' total funding to $106 million. Investors in the company include former Facebook Inc Chief Financial Officer David Ebersman and Rockefeller family's venture capital arm, Venrock.

Technology news website Tech Crunch reported in June that Grand Rounds was valued at around $750 million as part of a new financing round, citing sources.
Grand Rounds said it gets more than 80 percent of its revenue from companies looking to save costs on healthcare plans for employees.

"As a CEO of one of our customers recently told me, he is spending less on Grand Rounds then he is spending on coffee per employee for his company," Owen Tripp, co-founder and chief executive of Grand Rounds, told Reuters.

The San Francisco-based company helps its corporate customers save healthcare costs by connecting employees seeking medical opinion with relevant specialists using algorithms.

This process helps reduce patient complications and failed treatments, resulting in lower staff healthcare costs for companies.
Comprehensive Health Services awarded Department of Health and Human Services Contracts (20.08.2015)
Comprehensive Health Services awarded Department of Health and Human Services Contracts Worth Up to $388 Million.

Comprehensive Health Services, one of the nation’s largest and most experienced workforce medical services providers, was recently awarded two five-year contracts by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) to provide staffing, medical support and medical equipment at temporary shelters housing children who have entered the U.S. unaccompanied by a parent or legal guardian. The contracts could total approximately $388 million, with a portion of the funds going to medical staffing services and a portion to shelter staffing services. Staffing provided by Comprehensive Health Services includes physicians, nurses, licensed counselors, case workers, youth counselors and education technicians.

The temporary shelters are designed to immediately and effectively respond to a potential increase in the arrival of unaccompanied children by providing a safe living environment. The children are housed in temporary shelters until they are released to an appropriate sponsor while their immigration cases proceed.

“We take seriously our duty to ensure these children receive high-quality medical care in a safe environment,” said Dan Jones, Comprehensive Health Services chief operating officer and senior vice president of domestic programs. “Comprehensive Health Services is grateful to have been selected by HHS to assist these children in their time of need.”

In 2014, the federal government responded to a significant increase in the number of unaccompanied children entering the United States along the southwest border with a coordinated response focused on providing humanitarian care for the children. As a result of this effort, and in preparation for future potential increases in border crossings by unaccompanied children, ORR — an office within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), a division of HHS — issued contracts to provide temporary shelter and medical services to these unaccompanied minors, if necessary. ORR is responsible for helping new populations maximize their potential in the United States by linking them to critical resources.
