Har­vard Pil­grim forms ven­ture with N.H. sys­tems

Modern Healthcare - - REGIONAL NEWS - —Michael San­dler

Dart­mouth-Hitch­cock, El­liot Health Sys­tem and Fris­bie Me­mo­rial Hos­pi­tal will jointly own a new com­pany with Har­vard Pil­grim Health Care that will share clin­i­cal in­for­ma­tion and fi­nan­cial risk for 80,000 New Hamp­shire res­i­dents to sup­port pop­u­la­tion-health ef­forts.

The joint ven­ture, Ben­ev­era Health, will bring to­gether fi­nan­cial and clin­i­cal data to give the part­ner providers ac­cess to an­a­lyt­ics that can help them man­age care for all of the New Hamp- shire mem­bers in Har­vard Pil­grim’s fully in­sured plans.

The or­ga­ni­za­tions’ ex­ec­u­tives said they would make sig­nif­i­cant in­vest­ments in tech­nol­ogy. Premi­ums for Har­vard Pil­grim mem­bers will be 4% lower than they would have been with­out the ven­ture, they said.

“Our new com­pany is a game changer,” Har­vard Pil­grim CEO Eric Schultz said in a news re­lease. “The goal is to vastly im­prove pa­tient care in New Hamp­shire by in­ject­ing per­son­nel and new tech­nol­ogy that will pro­vide doc­tors and other clin­i­cians with the in­for­ma­tion they need to help their pa­tients make the best choices about their healthcare.”
