SAN FRANCISCO and CHICAGO – February 29, 2016 – Self Health Network Inc.TM (SHN) and Family Health Network, Inc. (FHN) announced today that FHN will begin using I’M HOME!®, SHN’s patent pending HIPAA compliant SaaS platform for care coordination and utilization management.
FHN, a rapidly growing Midwest Medicaid HMO, selected SHN, a leading provider of software services for health plans and hospitals, to improve connectivity with certain populations of its membership. Beginning with its perinatal care coordination programs, I’M HOME! is designed to reach prenatal and post-partum members. Using I’M HOME!’s proprietary reminders and alerts, members are prompted to make healthy choices and take actions consistent with their care plan. Members will use the system to find information about their condition, such as videos or other content, as well as to send secure messages to their care coordinator. FHN’s care coordinators benefit from the ability to focus on plan members at risk or those having trouble adhering to the care plan.
“In partnership with SHN, we will be providing our plan members with a unique and powerful set of tools to take preventive steps and maintain their own health, as well as their children’s,” said Sally Szumlas, FHN’s Vice President of Care Management and Quality. “I’M HOME!’s interactive capabilities and Learning Center enable communications and provide content in a user-friendly, effective manner, helping FHN deliver high-quality care to our members and their children.”
“We are thrilled to be working with this progressive team at FHN and are confident that by increasing member adherence to care plans, I’M HOME! will help improve the health of many people,” said Kevin Murphy, SHN’s CEO. “We are delighted that FHN selected I’M HOME!, further validating its application in managed care in addition to our demonstrated success helping hospitals reduce readmissions and improve outcomes.”
FHN plans to begin onboarding members in the first quarter of 2016. For more information, please visit www.selfhealthnetwork.com.
