Applied Research Works Announces an Innovative Approach to the Annual Wellness Visit and PAF

FREMONT, CA – February 18, 2020 –  Cozeva announced an innovative approach to submitting the Annual Wellness Visit (AWV) and Practitioner Assessment Form (PAF) in Cozeva’s provider portal. The Cozeva AWV and PAF is one form that gives you a robust 360-degree view of each patient all in one location. Cozeva’s AWV and PAF pre-populate data such as CPTII codes, chronic conditions and suspect conditions to reduce data entry burden and ensures HEDIS and HCC gap closures in one visit. The AWV and PAF also suggest codes based on biometric data entered by the provider.

Cozeva’s AWV and PAF form force ranks HCCs alongside the quality care gaps. This allows for a review of suspect HCC related diagnoses codes as well as the recapture of chronic HCC related diagnoses codes. Users can submit the AWV / PAF for review just like any other measure in Cozeva in order to attest to a member’s compliance for the AWV. Conditions must either contain MEAT criteria or be removed before the provider can sign the form. This unique intelligence helps mitigate any RADV audit risk. When reviewing the supplemental data, the provider only gets credit for submitting the AWV once an administrator has reviewed and approved it.

One of Cozeva’s clients, an IPA with over 10,000 Medicare Advantage members submitted 1,987 AWVs in 2018 of which 1,681 patients had any HCC-related diagnosis code. a total of 3,734 HCCs for these 1,681 patients were captured resulting in total RAF at 942.897 or 0.4745 RAF lift per member with an average of $2,278 Per AWV, and an annual ROI of $3.97 million dollars!

Through Cozeva’s AWV and PAF users can easily identify specific under-diagnosed conditions by selective screening, produce audit-resilient documentation and capture data electronically via an 837 or supplemental file all of which helps to automate and centrally track the workflow in the provider office. With Cozeva, there’s only one log-in you need to remember to get the 360-degree view of your patients, submit AWVs, and approve it. Cozeva’s AWV and PAF can provide a major RAF lift for your organization, resulting in a huge return on investment.

Applied Research Works Announces Cozeva Bridge so Providers can Focus on Addressing ‘Real’ Care Gaps

Applied Research Works Announces Cozeva Bridge so Providers can Focus on Addressing ‘Real’ Care Gaps

Fremont, CA — February 10, 2020 — Applied Research Works, Inc. (cozeva.com) announced today Cozeva Bridge, a new service in the market that consolidates medical information and incentives from health care provider groups and insurers into a unified view. Cozeva Bridge shares the necessary supplemental information with both health plans and medical systems for payments and reporting. Through the power of Cozeva Bridge, provider groups and insurers are able to access the information in Cozeva’s network and support engaging payment models with standardized and familiar workflows. Cozeva Bridge reconciles and provides Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS®) and chronic condition data capture services to health plans and risk-bearing provider organizations.

Inconsistency and gaps in medical history have become a real pain point for providers, provider groups and insurers. This limited visibility into patient data has caused more headaches for providers, provider groups, and insurers when their priority should be taking care of the patient. As information is exchanged on an ad-hoc basis, information gaps are a major barrier. This causes more paperwork for physicians and less time interacting with their patients. Ironic, since the reason why they became physicians in the first place was to take care of patients. Any additional paperwork to close gaps in information is a challenge with physicians already feeling fatigued from spending twice as much time on paperwork than with patients.

This major headache can now be solved through the power of the Cozeva Bridge. With information and payment consolidation through unified patient and provider views, Cozeva Bridge reduces false alarms from gaps in information and empowers providers, provider groups, and health plans to focus on achieving better patient experiences and outcomes at a lower cost. Cozeva Bridge is a two-way integration between multiple provider groups and insurers that minimizes the administrative burden and complexity associated with sharing supplemental data with different payers. Additionally, a unified view allows both Health plans and provider groups to have visibility into ‘real’ gaps in quality and risk and lets them partner with providers to improve outcomes with better payment models. What can Cozeva Bridge do for your organization?
