OVERLAND PARK, Kan., June 7, 2023 —  Curana Health, a provider-led, primary and post-acute organization focused on senior living communities, has selected Netsmart as their healthcare technology partner to enhance care coordination and delivery, to better support value-based models of care by leveraging the CareFabric® platform. Through this collaboration, Curana will utilize a comprehensive suite of highly customized solutions to advance consumer engagement initiatives, expand value-based care and effectively manage high-risk populations across their facilities nationwide.

Curana Health currently serves more than 1,000 senior living facility partners. Curana Health will serve as a thought leader and innovation partner with Netsmart in order to continue their successful expansion. Specifically, Curana will leverage GEHRIMED, a cloud-based mobile electronic health record (EHR) solution designed for and by long-term/post-acute care (LTPAC) practitioners with capabilities needed to enhance care, simplify workflows and manage compliance. GEHRIMED, an ONC-certified solution, provides efficient documentation for clinicians and streamlines quality measure support for merit-based incentive payment system (MIPS), accountable care organization (ACO) measures management and value-based care initiatives.

“Our goal is to enhance the senior living healthcare experience in such a profound way that we inspire national improvements in the care of older adults,” said Curana Health CEO Mark Price. “Our technology platform plays a key role in ensuring our clinicians have well-designed workflows, actionable data at the point of care, and an enhanced ability to collaborate effectively with other clinicians. The Netsmart CareFabric is a key part of the best-in-class technology platform that Curana Health providers use.”

Curana plans to expand its use of the CareFabric leveraging the myHealthPointe consumer engagement platform which supports remote health status monitoring to present insights to providers to help prioritize care. Also connecting individuals and families to their care plan through a user-friendly, secure solution. Additionally, the organization will benefit from the powerful Netsmart interoperability framework to seamlessly share and exchange data with health information exchanges and providers across the healthcare ecosystem to support continuity of care.

“Empowering Curana Health with innovative technology solutions to revolutionize coordinated, value-based care and drive exceptional outcomes is at the core of this partnership,” explained Beth Reece, VP & General Manager at Netsmart. “The organization will benefit from obtaining a person-centered view, leveraging enhanced relationships with health systems and payers to provide tailored care in preferred settings. Cutting-edge solutions unify their approach to improve consumer-driven care, enhance senior living environments, and achieve advanced models of care with optimized outcomes for those they serve.”

Through this relationship, Netsmart and Curana will continue to collaborate on ways to utilize the CareFabric platform to support Curana Health’s integrated model of care.
