Warm Health Is Now Altegra Health
MIAMI LAKES, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Altegra Health, a national provider of technology-enabled, performance-improvement services to health plans, today announced the acquisition of Warm Health. Based in Minneapolis, Warm Health is a category leader in providing innovative, multi-channel care management, quality measurement, and health education communications to health plan members throughout the United States. Altegra Health leads the healthcare industry with business and technology solutions that improve health plan performance by aligning member health status, member benefits, and accurate reimbursement. The company’s solutions address a full continuum of revenue management needs, including risk adjustment, encounter reporting, member eligibility and enrollment services, and quality reporting. These solutions help health plans gain a deeper understanding of their members’ health in order to bring together the right benefits, the right care, and the right reimbursement. Warm Health was established in 2005 by founders Tim Cameron and Michael Lunzer to create a better way for health plans to communicate with and engage their members. The company offers interactive, multi-channel member communications and a rich library of management programs for chronic conditions, maternal health, Star Ratings and HEDIS® to serve the needs of Medicare, Medicaid, and commercial health plan members. In April 2012, Warm Health released the Warm Health App, which delivers ongoing, interactive care and disease management content to health plan members, in addition to providing a direct, secure communication link between the member and their care manager. “This is a tremendous opportunity for Warm Health,” said Dan Freier, Chief Executive Officer of Warm Health, Inc. “Joining with Altegra Health will allow us to offer clients a much broader and comprehensive array of services.
