Central Georgia Health Network, which serves 650 independent physicians and 400 other allied providers in the greater Macon region, will implement a communitywide population health management platform for its members.

CGHN physicians practice in 65 different specialties and are affiliated with Navicent Health, a seven-hospital delivery system. The physicians work in primary care practices, hospitals and rehabilitation facilities.

The platform, from Arcadia Analytics, will support better resource allocation across the enterprise, with a population health system aiding clinicians participating in care coordination and quality improvement programs as they transition to value-based care.

The platform, collecting data from more than 40 physical and behavioral health electronic health record systems along with health insurance claims systems, also will support secure collection and exchange of actionable information across all locations in near-real time, as well as offering historical patient information to identify gaps in care during appointments.

“We are making an investment to improve the health status of our community and drive better outcomes,” says Charles Carroll, CEO at Central Georgia Health Network. “As we continue to grow our network and expand our services, Arcadia’s enterprise-level platform will scale with us.”
