Elation Health and Ribbon Health partner to provide exceptional referral management

The partnership will allow consumers direct access to accurate and actionable data about doctors, insurance plans, costs and quality of care

SAN FRANCISCO, November 10, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Elation Health, the first clinical platform powering the future of sustainable primary care, and Ribbon Health, the leader in healthcare provider data management, announced today that Elation and Ribbon are partnering to integrate the Ribbon provider data in Elation Health’s primary care electronic health record (EHR) platform. More than 24,000 clinicians in the Elation community will access data from Ribbon’s provider directory to power their referral management workflows while reducing administrative burden and giving physicians more time to care for patients. Elation customers will also have the option to use Ribbon’s insurance plan information and provider relationship data, as well as demographic information and clinical focus areas, to drive better patient-provider matches that are both cost-effective and high quality.

A staggering 50% of records in publicly available electronic provider directories have at least one inaccuracy, making it difficult for providers and care navigators to access the most basic information needed to guide patients to high-quality health care. Beyond basic directory information, providers lack more nuanced data that can be critical to making informed care decisions, such as the insurance a provider accepts or the cost and quality of a provider’s care. As a result, inappropriate or unavailable data can lead to patient rejection from the healthcare system.

“Our ultimate vision is to create a world where navigating healthcare is easy. Ribbon enriches thousands of supplier data points to create a single source of truth for accurate and actionable supplier information,” said Nate Maslak, co-founder and CEO of Ribbon Health. “Elation’s mission is deeply aligned with ours – to provide access to affordable, high-quality care. By partnering with Elation in shaping the future, we’re able to provide streamlined referrals for providers and their patients across the country while improving access to better care at large.”

Ribbon Health is building infrastructure to transform billions of care solutions. Integration with Elation’s EHR platform means more primary care clinicians will experience a streamlined and exceptional referral management process, giving them more time for direct patient care. Together, Elation and Ribbon improve the patient experience by ensuring people are directed to high-quality specialists in the network who can meet their unique clinical needs, account for diverse patient preferences and provide a transparent view of the cost of care.

“We are excited to partner with Ribbon Health and offer their innovative data solution within Elation’s intuitive platform to accelerate technology-driven, team-based care,” said Pratik Sawai, CTO of Elation Health. “Thoughtful, informed referrals to other clinicians are a key part of the primary care toolkit. This band technology aligns well with our focus on maintaining the doctor-patient relationship and ensuring success in advanced payment models.”

Elation’s modern, open cloud platform supports leading enterprise primary care innovators to succeed in delivering value-based care, achieving results such as 30% savings in healthcare costs and a fourfold reduction in referrals to expensive specialists.
