naviHealth and Security Health Plan Announce Extension of Partnership to Enhance Post-Acute Outcomes





naviHealth and Security Health Plan of Wisconsin, Inc., today announced a multi-year extension of their collaboration in managing post-acute care services for Security Health Plan’s Medicare Advantage and commercial members.

The agreement, initially signed in March 2014, will continue to leverage naviHealth’s decision-support technology and field-based clinicians to deliver high-touch care management services to Security Health Plan members receiving skilled nursing facility care, long-term acute care and inpatient rehabilitation services.

“We are proud to extend our work with Security Health Plan delivering more personalized care plans for its members through our high-tech high-touch approach,” said Clay Richards, naviHealth chief executive officer. “The extension of our agreement serves as a testament to our ability to drive results for our partners through innovative methods that ultimately result in enhanced patient satisfaction and better outcomes for members.”

naviHealth’s care managers have engaged and assessed Security Health members during their hospital stays to educate members and caregivers on care and rehabilitation options. Post-discharge, naviHealth works with patients and care teams within post-acute facilities to update care plans and monitor progress against personalized goals.

“naviHealth has definitely helped us improve the quality of care and service we offer our members. Our previous positive experience with naviHealth solidified our desire to work with them on a longer-term basis. We are pleased to be able to continue working with naviHealth for the health of our members,” said Security Health Plan Chief Medical Officer Mark LePage, M.D.
