Healthcare Technology Company Making Headway in Michigan

The Garage — a healthcare technology company providing population health management solutions to stakeholders across the industry — has just announced a new partnership with Reliance ACO.

Reliance joins The Garage’s existing client base of more than 25 ACOs, including several new organizations that have partnered with The Garage in recent months. Reliance has selected The Garage’s SaaS-based population health management platform, Bridge, to better interact and engage with their patient population and Medicare beneficiaries in Michigan, and provide improved quality of care and lower costs. The addition of this ACO partner will further broaden The Garage’s impact on patient care, adding another 40,000+ new Medicare patient lives to the over 6 million The Garage currently touches.

Reliance ACO, based in the Detroit metropolitan area, is a multi-track ACO that has successfully delivered patient quality and shared savings within the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP) program. In need of a comprehensive platform with an emphasis on analytics and the ability to handle size and scope, Reliance will use Bridge to continue improving upon their existing performance.

“We selected to partner with The Garage because of the versatility of their platform and their ability to centralize data analytics for multiple risk programs,” said Dr. Nazmul Haque, founder and CEO of Reliance ACO.

Op-Ed: Could Inspector Gadget Shape Health IT’s Future?

Op-Ed Could Inspector Gadget Shape Health IT’s FutureThe following is a guest contributed post from Jonathon Dreyer, director of cloud and mobile solutions marketing at Nuance.

Inspector Gadget was, by far, my favorite show growing up.  It had everything: mystery, a bionic detective, an evil genius looking to take over the world, a bipedal talking dog named Brain, and, of course, Penny.

Penny was the coolest.  In addition to being roughly my age at the time, she was resourceful, constantly solving capers and thwarting Dr. Claw’s devious plots—and she did this by using technology.  Outfitted with a book that was remarkably similar to a tablet and a wristband that resembled a modern-day smart watch, she could talk with Brain, conduct research, and look up locations and coordinates on a digital map.
