RENO, NV (Aug. 2, 2023) — Prominence Health Plan is pleased to announce its partnership with LeadingReach, healthcare’s connected referral network and technology platform. By using LeadingReach as the foundation of its referral management efforts, Prominence Health Plan furthers its commitment to connect medical providers, specialists, and care coordinators to deliver high-quality care and improve the patient experience. 

Prominence Health Plan’s ability to identify cost drivers across the healthcare continuum, then create innovative solutions to standardize care, increase efficiencies, and achieve quality outcomes is critical to their success.  For example, since 2014, the Accountable Care Organizations (ACO) of Universal Health Services have generated nearly $400 million in savings to Medicare.

“Through LeadingReach’s platform, we have created data-driven analytics around specialist performance to build value-based Medical Neighborhoods,” said Kamal Jemmoua, CEO, Prominence Health Plan. “We are excited for the opportunity to coordinate high-quality care for the patients in our communities.” 

Notable successes of Prominence Health Plan’s partnership with LeadingReach include:

  • Pilot model with South Texas Clinical Partners ACO.
  • Providing our participating primary care providers with unprecedented data insights into specialist access times, referral response times, and clinical consult notes.
  • Increasing the utilization of the LeadingReach platform from less than 10% of specialists to over 50% of specialists across the South Texas region.
  • Delivering 70+% of total referrals digitally through the LeadingReach Network to specialists.
  • Reducing specialist appointment wait times by nearly one week for engaged specialists.
  • Sending more than 4,000 referrals per month.

LeadingReach connects and supports high performing healthcare networks for value-based care organizations via the LeadingReach Network, a nationwide connected provider community of more than 40,000 organizations aimed at improving the experience of both the staff and patient during a transition of care.
