Individualizing the Population Health ExperienceValue Statement
Heudia empowers hospitals, managed care organizations, and government agencies to better control cost and implement more effective value-based payment models.
This is accomplished through a technology-driven, subscription-based care model that utilizes data to identify the best opportunities to meaningfully intervene against a community’s most pressing population health challenges.
We achieve our mission by converting data into actionable information – empowering low-income individuals to seek care at the right place and time while educating them to become better healthcare consumers that cost less to care for.
This approach to population health builds on the industry’s investment in population health analytics and reduces complex methodologies that fail to engage high cost, high risk, and high need individuals who are typically hard-to-find.
Provider Led Partnerships
Hospitals, health clinics, and accountable care organizations all benefit from Heudia’s solution set. This occurs because a rapidly increasing number of uninsured and under-insured individuals who are unable to pay for healthcare services are empowered to address their primary barriers to care and are proactively guided to seek care at the most appropriate place and time through multiple overlapping points of engagement. This reduces write-offs and improves net margins for hospitals and increases revenue for health clinics and ACOs.
Government Led Partnerships
Heudia’s solution set was specifically designed and optimized to address the needs of “hard-to-reach, hard-to-serve” individuals and other vulnerable populations served by a countless number of public health programs led by a diverse range of Government Agencies with a need to rapidly engage with community stakeholders to develop, plan, and coordinate public health initiatives.
Payor Led Partnerships
Risk bearing organizations such as Medicaid Managed Care Organizations and Marketplace Health Insurance Plans benefit from Heudia’s solution set because it streamlines the continuum of care and individualizes the population health experience for plan members. This strategy eliminates the complex interplay that occurs at the community-level between health care programs, community-based organizations, and the individual themselves that create unmitigated risk for the Payor at every transition of care.
What Heudia Can Do For You!
We synthesize a community’s health, social service, education, and economic initiatives into one virtual center of care.
A typical engagement starts with developing a strong understanding of the Client’s population health and/or community health needs as it relates to their target population. This based on customer furnished population health data, a working knowledge of their opportunities for improvement, or the application of a unique set of analytical techniques and access models by Heudia.
Technology, Tools, & Data
AccessMeCare™ simplifies the flow of information and accelerates the ability to engage vulnerable individuals through utilization of smart phones, social media, digital health devices, and other emerging technologies. This SaaS platform provides a seamless user experience and includes all the tools government agencies, healthcare providers, managed care organizations, and community stakeholders needs to establish culturally competent – community-centered population health program.
AccessMeCare™ rapidly accelerates and strengthens the formation of a broad network of community-based care providers specifically aligned to the precise needs of the client’s target population. These Cross-Sector Partnerships are established using an evidenced-based methodology proven to increase utilization of the most appropriate center of care, reduce avoidable Emergency Department expense, and improve inter-organizational collaboration/communication.
Individuals are engaged through a specific series of well tuned outreach and engagement activities managed by Heudia and aligned with two primary user groups – professional service providers (staff members from participating organizations) and individuals who seek self-directed care.
Continual Quality Improvement
Heudia uses a 6-step Continual Quality Improvement Process (CQIP) to ensure the educational content and provider data is relevant, timely, reliable, accessible, and actionable to all community stakeholders and individuals. This process includes eco-system analytics that provides clear metrics that are used to determine the level of success, gaps in services, and opportunities for improvement.
Value-Added Support Services
In additional to the standard level of service which includes hosting, maintenance, training, technical support, and administration services (such as help desk and content moderation), the Company also provides clients with value-added content/content curation services, recurring training programs, community health kiosks, an affinity/incentive program option, and custom software development.
- The Name: Heudia -
The name “Heudia” [Pronounced U-dee-Ah] is based upon the Greek word Eudaimonia with the “H” added for Health. Eudaimonia is commonly translated as happiness or welfare although “human flourishing” is a more accurate translation which is the essential goal of the Company – to help individuals flourish under difficult conditions.
- AccessMeCare -
AccessMeCare™ is a Virtual Social Worker that does for the masses what we would all do for a friend, family member, or loved one challenged by difficult health and socio-economic conditions – It allows a person to define a need, identify a set of providers that match the need, then empowers the individual to engage with those providers that match their eligibility criteria.
- Human Factors -
The ability to live a healthy, productive life is frequently driven by community-level factors and the complex interplay that exist between service providers, programs, and the people they are intended to serve. The same basic set of barriers — culture, distrust, fear, health beliefs, knowledge, language, literacy, stigma, shame, and transportation — impedes at each, and every, transition of care.
A common set of barriers are the predominate drivers of unmitigated health risk in America and impact on almost every Leading Health Indicator.
