Cook County Health and Hospital System taps Texture Health for care management platform

Cook County Health and Hospitals System in Chicago plans to implement a care management platform from Texture Health, the Chicago-based tech company announced Nov. 7.

Texture Health will integrate disparate clinical and administrative data sources to create a longitudinal health record for each patient, including relevant behavioral and social factors. The platform features a data visualization dashboard and metrics for care costs, patient satisfaction and provider performance.

The goal of the Texture Health platform is to facilitate collaboration between providers, payers and patients, including care coordination management and patient engagement capabilities. "Texture Health provides a 360-degree care management view of patients," said Suresh Kumar, chief technology officer of Texture Health.

Texture Health is the result of a joint investment between private equity firm Gary Comer and health IT solutions provider Safety Net Connect in collaboration with Medical Home Network, an integrated network of safety net providers in Chicago.
