MEDecision, Inc. announced that Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City (BCBSKC) has selected the company's Alineo 2.0 collaborative health care management platform. The two parties have agreed to begin implementation in June. The deal strengthens MEDecision’s position as a leader in the development of technical solutions that meet the changing needs of the reform-driven health care market.
BCBSKC will install the company’s member-focused Alineo 2.0 to manage care for nearly one million members in greater Kansas City, northwest Missouri and eastern Kansas. The technology enables the insurer to support its popular A Healthier You wellness program, which furnishes members with a comprehensive portfolio of health and wellness tools and services that enable them to establish and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Alineo 2.0 provides BCBSKC 360-degree view of its members necessary for the initiative’s continued growth.
“Working with BCBSKC allows us to demonstrate our commitment to offering technology that meets the changing needs of the market,” said David St.Clair, founder and CEO of MEDecision. “We are pleased that they have selected Alineo for their care management platform, and we look forward to the many things our organizations can accomplish together as we approach new opportunities on the horizon for health care.”
“The health care industry is poised for great change, and Alineo is a solution that can easily adapt to meet our needs as we evolve with the market,” said Brian Burns, senior vice president of Health Care Services at BCBSKC. “We were very impressed with its vast capabilities, particularly its ability to provide a complete view of our members’ health histories and to accommodate our long-term growth.”
