Cerner and Lumeris will launch offering to reduce complexities for health systems delivering value-based care

July 11, 2018

Cerner and Lumeris announced a 10-year relationship aimed at eliminating inefficiencies in the current healthcare system. Under the relationship, the parties will launch a new offering, Maestro Advantage, for value-based arrangements, including Medicare Advantage (MA), and provider-sponsored health plans (PSHPs). It combines Cerner and Lumeris technology and services to streamline redundant processes that burden the patient and provider, including lengthy claims processing and reimbursement cycles, and obstacles to sharing data and records. Maestro Advantage is designed to help health systems succeed with MA, and other value-based arrangements by improving the quality of outcomes and physician-patient encounters.

Maestro Advantage integrates actionable data and insights with provider workflows, leveraging existing investment in digitized data and processes. Maestro Advantage is designed so providers can more effectively assess risk and create interventions and better maximize outcomes for patients enrolled in value-based arrangements, such as PSHPs and MA plans. Maestro Advantage will manage health systems’ increasingly complex mix of owned- and affiliated-provider relationships across any EHR in the network.

As part of the relationship, Lumeris will adopt Cerner’s HealtheIntentSM platform and combine its clinical methodology and advanced analytics to help drive better patient outcomes and lower costs of care. Cerner and Lumeris will identify health systems best positioned to succeed with the offering, particularly large organizations pursuing multi-year growth strategies. Initial deployments of Maestro Advantage are expected to begin in the second half of 2018 with broad market implementations in 2019.  An executive steering committee of members from Lumeris and Cerner leadership will provide oversight and governance of the strategy, business development, client delivery and continuous innovation of Maestro Advantage
