We’re in an industry that’s driven by breaking news, but every once in a while it’s interesting to look back on where we’ve come from. Which companies and trends were making the headlines in years past? In this press recap, we review some of our historic news coverage, with attention to the customers and partners that helped us get to where we are today.
Santa Barbara News Press described BioIQ’s work with Maxim Health System, which has 20,000 nurses around the country doing immunizations, health screenings, onsite occupational health assessments and wellness programs. The partnership was formed to develop a tablet-based software application that integrates the health-screening process with wellness options — all while providing real-time data management, analysis and reporting.
Healthcare Reform magazine explained how Independent Care Health Plan (iCare) improved its Medicare Star ratings after obtaining BioIQ’s assistance reaching out to noncompliant members, resulting in increased reimbursement rates. iCare has worked with BioIQ to launch several HEDIS/Star campaigns, with the objective of closing gaps in care related to colorectal cancer screening, diabetes screening and cholesterol screening.
Pacific Coast Business Times featured a population health program that BioIQ spearheaded for Cottage Health System. Ron Lafrican, Director of Benefits and Compensation at Cottage, reported great participation at all onsite screening events, with 95 percent of registered employees arriving as scheduled. Those who could not attend had the option to order a BioIQ At-Home Test Kit, which includes instructions for drawing a tiny blood sample through a simple finger-prick method and mailing it to a certified laboratory for analysis.
BioIQ joined forces with Keenan to bring wellness services to Huntington Hospital. The partners not only spearheaded Huntington’s population health screening program, but also created a Web portal to anchor other health and wellness activities. The portal served as an online hub for signing up users, sending reminders, conveying lab results and integrating data from multiple wellness vendors into cohesive electronic health records.
Back in the days when BioIQ was commonly known as “the Netflix of healthcare,” Employee Benefit News reported how Scripps Health embarked on a multi-year wellness program that includes home testing services from BioIQ. BioIQ helped the San Diego-based healthcare delivery network access its entire population—including dependents and people in small and remote offices—boosting engagement in their wellness program.
