Among the services HealthEC will provide are optimizing contract negotiations with payers, raising clinical and financial performance by closing gaps in patient care, and developing targeted, personalized care plans and interventions.

"HealthEC is honored to be chosen as the PHM provider for Beaumont ACO and anticipates helping the organization leverage opportunities for improving performance, health outcomes and costs across the ACO," said Arthur Kapoor, Chief Executive Officer at HealthEC. "It is gratifying to know that our success in implementing value-based care solutions at Beaumont Health was a key factor in the ACO’s selection of HealthEC as its PHM provider."
