Alithias Selects ArmadaHealth’s QualityCare Navigator℠ to Add AI-Enhanced Clinical Navigation to Its Cost-Containment Platform for Employers

Quality transparency and concierge cost-containment market leaders join forces to create a comprehensive high-performance healthcare solution for TPAs & self-insured employers

HUNT VALLEY, Md. & MILWAUKEE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ArmadaHealth®, a leading provider of physician recommendation intelligence and Alithias, a leading provider of Healthcare Advocacy Services, are pleased to announce their new partnership, embedding ArmadaHealth’s QualityCare Navigator evidence-based patient/physician matching solution in Alithias’ employee benefits platform.

Clients love the savings they enjoy when our Advocates guide their employees to value, but we knew it could be even better if we could also steer members to the highest quality physicians, as well,” said Ross Bjella, founder and CEO, Alithias. “Getting members to the right doctor the first time results in a better initial diagnosis and fewer unnecessary tests and procedures. We looked at many physician-quality solutions and selected ArmadaHealth because their hybrid approach of combining high-tech with human expertise provides the best quality navigation in the industry.”

Alithias, founded in 2011, began using QualityCare Navigator (QCN) with some of their nearly 100 employers’ customers beginning in April 2020. With this added benefit to their concierge advocacy solutions, Alithias is helping employees get the most value from their benefits plan. Alithias Advocates are the single point of contact who provide personalized, cohesive information when employees need help finding high-value providers or have questions about any aspect of their benefits – saving both time and money.

We are ecstatic to be a part of one of the first true quality and cost transparency solutions in the industry,” said Susan Torroella, CEO, ArmadaHealth. “Alithias has been a pioneer in providing concierge advocacy services and shares our mission-driven values and vision for using a High Tech, Right Touch® approach to disrupt the status quo and bring high-performance, affordable healthcare opportunities to the marketplace. This is truly a 1+1=3 solution for the industry.”

ArmadaHealth’s QCN enables member-facing support teams to leverage a Navigation-as-a-Service model, amplifying their value-based care initiatives. QCN easily plugs into existing platforms and processes so groups can benefit from optimal care relatively quickly, while member-facing teams spend more time helping members. QCN is powered by ArmadaHealth’s enhanced intelligence data science platform, S.I.E.N.A.® which fuses human clinical expertise with AI and Machine Learning technology resulting in evidence-based, unbiased patient/physician-matching outcomes.
