Department of Defense (DoD) TRICARE Management Agency (TMA) Awards Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Contract to Focused Management and HEALTHeSTATE
Fairfax, VA - The Department of Defense (DoD) TRICARE Management Agency (TMA) awarded a contract to Focused Management, Inc.(www.focusedmgmtinc.com) and its prime subcontractor, HEALTHeSTATE LLC (www.healthestate.us), in support of their demonstration project to encourage civilian providers who see DoD beneficiaries to adopt Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) behaviors. Specifically, TMA is initiating a PCMH demonstration project to test the impact electronic healthcare record (EHR) adoption will have on migrating high-risk patients into high-functioning, advanced primary care practices and leverage PCMH models of care to effect positive change on the health outcomes, per capita cost, satisfaction and access for the beneficiary population.
HEALTHeSTATE will provide its nationally certified EHR, which was originally created in the US Army as HEALTHeFORCES, to selected providers at no cost. The providers and their staff will be trained on the EHR and are free to use it for all of their patients. For TRICARE beneficiaries, HEALTHeSTATE will create secure data transmission capabilities to move selected clinical data elements back to the DoD, giving the DoD better insights into the care provided to those beneficiaries.
"As a service-disabled, veteran owned company, HEALTHeSTATE is thrilled to have an opportunity to work closely again with the DoD to have a positive impact on the care of TRICARE beneficiaries," said Andy Baker (Lt Col USAF (ret)), CEO of HEALTHeSTATE. "Together with our partners at FMI, we will ensure the success of the demonstration project and look forward to building an important new capability for TMA."
