Tango has teamed up with WellSky to launch a comprehensive post-acute care management programme aimed at improving medical outcomes while reducing the total care cost.    

The collaboration brings together Tango’s value-based home health enablement platform and networks with WellSky’s acute and post-acute technology, analytics, and services.

This is expected to address marketplace challenges such as limited or delayed access to optimised transitions within post-acute care, lack of effective integration and connectivity, disjointed incentives, and reimbursement issues.  

WellSky payer and emerging markets president Andy Eilert said: “With the seamless integration of powerful technology, rich data, and advanced services capabilities, our collaboration provides the opportunity to optimise the patient’s journey.

“This programme facilitates effective and timely access to appropriate and high-quality post-acute services for each patient, resulting in a ‘win-win-win’ impact for patients, providers, and health plans.”

WellSky said the programme supports a holistic approach to managing post-acute care, aligning and incentivising providers to achieve better clinical and cost outcomes.

Tango CEO Brian Lobley said: “Optimising post-acute care tailored to patients’ conditions and preferences is paramount. Our decades of experience in home health and curated value-based networks enable us to confidently help ensure patients get the quality care they need, when and where they want it.

“The tango and WellSky partnership positively impacts the patient and provider experience through our ability to transition a member seamlessly and quickly from acute and post-acute facilities to home.”

The financial advantages of health plans are underscored by a delegated model that coordinates and manages post-acute care episodes, offering guaranteed cost savings and the potential for shared savings, stated the companies.

This alliance represents a strategic move towards simplifying outsourcing for health plans by consolidating risk and management under a single partnership, they said.

Earlier this year, WellSky partnered with Vytalize Health, an Accountable Care Organisation (ACO), to improve value-based care outcomes
