August 15, 2017 – HealPros, a technology-enabled company providing HEDIS and STAR improvement programs, and BioIQ, a technology platform driving the employer and health plan shift to value-based care, have partnered to provide a comprehensive diabetes care gap closure solution to help health plans improve quality ratings for Comprehensive Diabetes Care (CDC) HEDIS measures. Proper diabetes management is essential to control blood glucose, reduce risks for complications and improve health outcomes. The joint offering will combine HealPros’ Diabetic Retinal Eye (DRE) exams with BioIQ’s convenient at-home health test kits and technology solutions.
Together, HealPros and BioIQ will offer health plans a scalable, effective, solution that helps them meet requirements for all three CDC measures – retinopathy screening, HbA1c testing and HbA1c glucose control, and kidney disease screening – all from the comfort of their members’ own home in a single encounter. HealPros provides member outreach along with trained technologists to deliver services in the home setting.
This solution will enable health plans to address not only the DRE care measure, but additional measures using at-home test kits, including colorectal cancer screening. This allows health plans to meet HEDIS requirements while maximizing the effectiveness of at-home screening initiatives and providing a seamless member experience.
Mike Yom, Chief Product Officer at HealPros said, “HealPros’ innovative process for managing mobile care is the perfect modality for scaling BioIQ’s technology and health testing programs. This combined offering gives health plans an opportunity to engage hard-to-reach populations and improve quality ratings, while delivering better service and greater convenience to their members.”
Joshua Sclar, MD, MPH, Chief Medical Officer at BioIQ, said, “BioIQ is committed to making high- value preventive health services more accessible and easier for people to use. Combining our innovative diabetes testing and measurement capabilities with the leading provider of in-home diabetic retinal exams allows us to offer our customers best-in-class, comprehensive, consumer-friendly care for people with diabetes.”
