Companies mentioned in this article: ZeOmega Inc.

FRISCO, Texas -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- ZeOmega Inc., the premier provider of software solutions for population healthcare management, today announced that Florida Blue, Florida’s Blue Cross and Blue Shield company, has gone live on the Jiva™ population healthcare management software solution. The implementation, which was completed in less than nine months, will help Florida Blue improve operational efficiency, clinical productivity, and health outcomes for its members through enhanced collaboration among physicians, members, case managers, and other stakeholders.

Florida Blue, which deployed Jiva’s Case Management (CM) and Disease Management (DM) modules in the initial phase along with the corresponding care plan protocols, care analytics, and advanced reporting, is now able to integrate its care management programs for targeted support to help members manage their health challenges. Florida Blue is also leveraging Jiva’s clinical protocols for managing chronic conditions. This enables personalized care plans to be created automatically and consistently with the primary goal of improving health outcomes for Florida Blue members while lowering costs and improving workflow efficiency.

According to Florida Blue, comprehensive functionality and the ability to deliver on an aggressive timeline were key factors in their selection process. “Our goal was to establish a single platform to serve our member-centric engagement strategy with an emphasis on the entire care continuum, including wellness coaching, case management, and chronic condition management,” said Dr. Jannifer Harper, vice president and chief medical officer for Florida Blue. “In looking at ZeOmega’s past experience, we felt confident in their ability to deliver a solution that met our needs.”

In addition to the desired care management and disease management functions, Florida Blue required a technology platform that would support their business requirements today and in the future. Specifically, Florida Blue required the ability to consolidate care management functions from disparate systems into one member-centric care management platform. Jiva’s comprehensive, modular capabilities enable Florida Blue to not only achieve its short-term goals, but also to solidify its position as a leader in population health management well into the future.

“We are very pleased that Florida Blue is using Jiva to deliver population healthcare management services to its members,” says Nandini Rangaswamy, executive vice president and chief strategy officer for ZeOmega. “The ZeOmega team has a solid track record of delivering successful implementations. This, coupled with the Florida Blue team’s focus, hard work and preparedness, resulted in a very smooth deployment despite the project’s complexities and accelerated schedule. We are confident Florida Blue will continue to see the improved efficiencies and improvements to member outcomes they are expecting, and we look forward to our ongoing collaborations.”
