CareSignal has partnered with the Texas Association of Community Health Centers to expand access, quality of care, and equity for every patient served by TAHC’s 73 state-licensed health centers.
It is essential that we continue to find new solutions to ensure that patients disproportionately affected by chronic diseases have access to the tools they need to stay healthy.
Through this partnership, the partners aim to break down barriers for the state’s Medicaid population. TACHC health centers focus on consumers and provide integrated services based on community needs. Now that CareSignal has joined the TACHC, its centers will be able to offer technology that connects patients to their care team. More than 41% of each health center is located in rural areas where patients may have limited or almost no access to technology.
TACHC and CareSignal will use accessible technologies to advance healthcare equity and digitally connect patients by improving access to care for undeserving patients. CareSignal’s device-free remote patient monitoring platform makes it easier for tech center staff to work with automated patient surveys sent via text message instead of manual outbound care management calls. The partnership will help alleviate the challenge of staff shortages by automating CaerSignal in the first line of communication with patients. CareSignal triggers care managers when needed, allowing staff to have a larger pool of patients without compromising the quality of care.
Through CareSignal, TACHC member health centers will use real-time patient symptom data and support care teams to improve the quality of care, chronic patient costs, and utilization.
Partnering with the TACHC is a unique privilege: it’s an opportunity to serve more than a dozen organizations and teams most committed to providing quality, accessible, and equitable care to populations traditionally disabled by geographic and socio-economic barriers, said Blake Marggraff, CEO of CareSignal, a Lightbeam Company, “By incorporating the nationally recognized social determinants of health curriculum for all participating centers, I believe we will add value to clinical, financial and health equity.”
