Healthways & Carondelet Health Network Team To Assess A Population Health Management Plan In Tucson Market

Stocks in this article: HWAY

Healthways (NASDAQ: HWAY), a global leader in population health management, and Carondelet Health Network today announced an exclusive agreement to evaluate opportunities in population health management for the Tucson market. Carondelet and Healthways both recognize that healthcare is rapidly evolving and health systems must build new capabilities specifically focused on managing and improving the health and well-being of communities. Healthways provides experience and expertise in identifying the appropriate path toward that goal by creating systems that help people maintain healthy behaviors, reduce health-related risks, and optimize the care provided to those with chronic health conditions.

“In order for our healthcare system to fulfill its mission, it must be visionary—seeking out the most innovative methods by which to serve the needs of the residents for which we are responsible,” said James K. Beckmann, Jr., president and CEO of Carondelet. Through this joint endeavor, Carondelet and Healthways will develop plans to use their combined capabilities to meet the needs of physician partners, regional employers, and health insurers, with a focus on helping people take control of their health in a more proactive way.

First established by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet in 1880, Carondelet is the largest Catholic healthcare system in Arizona and is part of Ascension Health, the nation’s largest Catholic healthcare system. For more than three decades, Healthways has been an internationally recognized leader in the formulation and implementation of well-being improvement systems, serving more than 40 million people on four continents.

Carondelet and Healthways will be working toward a set of aligned objectives that include: realizing measurable and reportable improvements in health and well-being outcomes, delivering high-quality and affordable healthcare services across Southern Arizona, expanding a high-functioning network of employed and independent physicians caring for Carondelet patients, and developing strategic partnerships that will support Carondelet’s efforts to build healthier communities.
