Black Book Rankings has released the 2015 Black Book™ " Top Ranked Financial Services and Software Vendors, Value-Based Care and Accountable Care Organizations (ACO)" survey, ranking Conifer Health Solutions as the No. 1 provider of value-based care solutions to Medicare and commercial ACOs for the second consecutive year. Conifer Health ranked first in multiple survey categories, including Best of Breed Technology and Process Improvement; Client Relationships and Cultural Fit; Innovation and Customization.

The financial services and software survey measures client satisfaction with financial services outsourcing, consulting and software vendors. Vendor solutions are evaluated across four functional groups including: claims reimbursement payments; capitation and risk stratification/management; cost accounting, utilization performance effectiveness; and payer provider connectivity and interoperability. According to Black Book, more than 160 ACOs participated in the evaluation.

"We are honored to again be recognized as the top-ranked provider of financial services and consulting solutions to accountable care organizations and gratified by the trust that these organizations have put in Conifer Health to deliver real and measurable results," said Megan North, president of Value-Based Care for Conifer Health Solutions. "The results of this Black Book survey validate Conifer Health's strategic and thoughtful process for establishing and managing risk-based payment models."

The results of the Black Book survey affirm Conifer Health's 20 years of expertise developing and implementing value-based care services and solutions for more than 250 clients. In addition to Medicare and commercial ACOs, Conifer Health's clients include clinically integrated networks, full risk-bearing provider organizations, hospitals, health systems, physician groups and self-funded employers.
