Carisk/Valera Health Integration Benefits
Valera Health tracks outcomes longitudinally to identify clinical improvement and deterioration, consistently increasing care manager efficiency by nearly 50 percent. This technology further complements Carisk’s P2R platform, allowing its care coordinators to enhance their biopsychosocial assessments and integrate more analytics. Valera’s data science capability directly integrates with Carisk’s advanced P2R platform for the early identification of high-risk patients and intervention.
“This partnership furthers our patient-centered approach, allowing us to meet the patients where they are in their recovery process, in the manner in which they prefer,” says Joseph Berardo Jr., CEO of Carisk. “We place high value on the Valera technology and its analytic capabilities to enhance our workflow resulting in an even more effective, collaborative process for patient-centered care. This partnership aligns with our commitment to achieve consistent, results-driven outcomes by better tracking patient progress toward goals.”
Carisk is the first and only Managed Behavioral Healthcare Organization with dual accreditations from both the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) and the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Healthcare, Inc. (AAAHC).
