Emcara Health Joins Moving Health Home Coalition
PopHealthCare’s National Value-Based Medical Group Emcara Health Joins Moving Health Home Coalition
Franklin, Tenn., October 20, 2021 – Emcara Health, a national value-based medical group launched by PopHealthCare, announced today it has joined Moving Health Home, a coalition of stakeholders working to move more healthcare services into the home setting. Emcara Health is a recent expansion of PopHealthCare, a leader in home-based care and prospective/retrospective risk adjustment services.
Formed in March 2021, Moving Health Home members are working to change federal and state policies to enable the home to be a clinical site of care. The Washington D.C.-based advocacy group includes Amazon Care, hospital groups and in-home care providers such as Emcara Health who want to increase the availability to high-quality home-based healthcare services.
“As the momentum for more care in the home intensifies among patients, caregivers, advocates, and policymakers, we are pleased to welcome new stakeholders to the table that embody our mission,” said Krista Drobac, founder of Moving Health Home. “During the pandemic, the value of clinical care in the home was demonstrated, and we look forward to working with Emcara Health and all of our members to ensure home-based care is part of the future.”
“The pandemic has accelerated the recognition that home-based care solutions maximize patient engagement and deliver better health outcomes for vulnerable populations,” said Kirk Stanley, president of PopHealthCare. “Having conducted over 250,000 patient home visits during the past seven years, we know that seeing patients where they live, including assisted living facilities and other institutional settings, delivers more quality care at a lower cost. Joining Moving Health Home provides Emcara with yet another opportunity to reimagine how healthcare is delivered by advancing the idea of the home as a clinical site of care.”
The innovative new care model from Emcara Health dramatically expands the reach of in-home care beyond the strictly homebound. The model can serve up to 20 percent of a Managed Care Organizations population, depending on the Line of Business, with the largest concentration found in Medicare Advantage plans. Those Medicare Advantage members eligible for Emcara services typically have more than three chronic conditions and account for up to 50 percent of all claims.
As a national, value-based medical group, Emcara serves all lines of business, including Medicare Advantage, ACA, Managed Medicaid, and Managed Medicare. Emcara also offers health plans the flexibility of choosing between a variety of care solutions, including, advanced primary care, advanced supportive care (currently known as PopHealthCare’s CareSight offering), and short-term care solutions (in-home assessments, social determinants of health (SDOH) assessments, transition of care, ER diversion and in-home palliative care).
