Today, Foothold Technology (“Foothold”) announced a new partnership with Skyward Health (“Skyward”). This partnership will enable Skyward to oversee the Health Home care of 30,000 members across 15 counties in New York State.
Skyward’s goal is to eliminate the health equity gaps and support full access to high-quality and equitable health care for all members of its Health Home. Essential to achieving this goal is the ability to capture and easily analyze the right data at the right time. Skyward selected Foothold – the technology partner to five of the state’s six largest lead Health Homes – to contribute to these efforts. Foothold provides the only software platform that simultaneously handles Health Home care management and billing, which will be particularly important as Skyward positions itself for upcoming changes to the state’s Medicaid delivery system and for value-based payment arrangements.
“Skyward Health will be the champion that Medicaid members with chronic conditions deserve, one that simplifies an overly complex health system and advocates for every patient’s medical, emotional and social needs. Partnering with Foothold allows us to coordinate and analyze vast amounts of data and get the concise insights we need. Their experience has made it easy for our care coordinators to provide top-level service to our members,” said Andrea Hopkins, Executive Director of Skyward Health.
“We’re thrilled to support Skyward in their mission-critical work as New York State’s largest lead Health Home. Skyward’s selection of Foothold Care Management represents a tremendous stamp of approval for the solution we’ve delivered to our customers, and more importantly, provides us with a fantastic partner that will help us continue to scale and improve. We couldn’t be more excited to continue working with Andrea and the rest of the Skyward team, especially as the role of New York State Health Homes continues to evolve and expand,” said Tyler Hoffman, CEO of Foothold Technology.News Source: Businesswire
