Humana Adopts Cozeva to Comply with P4P

To help manage its Medicare Advantage member’s health better, Humana, a leading health and well-being company, has signed on with Applied Research Works, Inc., a provider of software solutions to health systems, to utilize Cozeva in the state of Hawaii.
Cozeva is a software solution that enables health plans to deploy their pay-for-performance programs through near real-time, actionable dashboards informing doctors which of their patients need preventive care screenings and more attention, further enabling the delivery of quality care and better patient outcomes.
Cozeva does this by enabling doctors to engage patients and keep them on track with their preventive health care via alerts and messaging through the patient’s preferred communications method: an online patient portal, secure email, mobile applications or postal mail.
“More than 700 doctors are registered on Cozeva in Hawaii and adding Humana’s program to this platform will only make it easier for doctors to transition from fee-for-service to paying for quality healthcare,” said Shaibal Roy, CEO of Applied Research Works. “By signing on to utilize Cozeva, Humana is showing its commitment to the people of Hawaii and the providers who care for them.”
“Humana is committed to helping our members achieve lifelong well-being. By choosing Applied Research Works as our technology partner in Hawaii, we can offer our patients better care coordination and get them on the path to well-being with the assistance of their provider,” said Carol Sato, Director, Market Operations for Humana in Hawaii. “Cozeva will be an extension of Humana’s capabilities to ensure we are working closely with our provider partners to align payments with care coordination.”
Providers already utilizing Cozeva can access Humana Medicare Advantage member information starting Nov. 4, 2013. Providers not currently utilizing Cozeva can contact Applied Research Works Business Development at (808) 271-4943.
Cozeva will also be available to Humana Medicare Advantage members on November 4, 2013. Humana Medicare Advantage members can visit Cozeva.com to register or simply download the Cozeva Android or iPhone application. Humana members can also designate loved ones in Cozeva to help manage their health care.
