BATON ROUGE, La – eQHealth Solutions was selected by Peoples Health, a Louisiana Medicare Advantage company, to support its efforts to provide the highest level of preventive, chronic and acute care management to its plan members by using eQSuite® business intelligence, healthcare analytics and population health management technology. Designed for health plan administrators and medical management teams, eQHealth’s technology facilitates care transitions, case management and disease management across the entire continuum of care and provides insights on the factors driving the quality of care and healthcare costs. eQHealth’s system will also be leveraged to identify high-risk members, categorizing and prioritizing members by illness and severity of illness, and pinpointing members needing intervention to fill gaps in care.
Established in 1994, Peoples Health was founded by medical providers, and today it continues to be guided by physicians and is focused on providing coverage to people with Medicare. Its Medicare health plans serve more than 60,000 Medicare beneficiaries in Louisiana and are the state’s highest-rated Medicare HMO plans. The company is accredited by NCQA.
