Collective Medical and Fallon Health Announce Partnership to Support Better Transitions of Care for High Risk Members

Collective Medical, delivering the leading ADT-based network for real-time care collaboration, today announced a partnership with Fallon Health, a nationally recognized not-for-profit health care services organization.

The partnership will help Fallon Health identify and support high-risk and vulnerable members, manage transitions of care and address social determinants of health across Massachusetts.

The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice estimates that $700 billion—or 30 percent—of all Medicare clinical spending is potentially avoidable. The lack of care coordination and subsequent gaps in care are responsible for $25 to 45 billion of this sum in wasteful spending. With Collective, Fallon Health can better identify members who are in need of additional or more personalized support—like those struggling with social determinants of health—in real time and push that information to downstream providers—allowing for seamless coordination between health plans and the broader care team.

Fallon Health collaborates with care providers, hospitals and regional and national coalitions to improve health care delivery and minimize medical errors. Fallon’s continued commitment to deliver high-quality health care and exceptional service has earned Fallon consistent rankings from the National Committee for Quality Assurance as one of the nation’s highest-rated health plans. 

“Collective Medical’s solutions will help us identify high risk individuals earlier and coordinate care for patients more effectively than ever before,” said Carolyn Langer, M.D., senior vice president and chief medical officer for Fallon Health. “Having information in real time means we can better manage transitions of care for high risk members, address social determinants of health, and ensure our members receive the right care at the right time and in the right setting. The partnership between Fallon and Collective Medical will improve health outcomes, enhance value and maximize a patient-centered model of care that puts members first.”
