Strive Health Selects Bamboo Health to Optimize Care Coordination for Improved Patient Outcomes


Leader in value-based kidney care to utilize admission, discharge and transfer data from Pings and Spotlights solutions for real-time visibility and patient engagement

Bamboo Health, formerly Appriss Health and PatientPing, a healthcare technology solutions company focused on fostering care collaboration and providing information and actionable insights across the entire continuum of care, announced that Strive Health, the national leader in value-based kidney care, has selected its solutions to monitor and drive better outcomes for kidney disease patients throughout Illinois, North Carolina, New Jersey, and Michigan. The partnership includes the use of Bamboo Health’s Pings solution for real-time admission, discharge, and transfer (ADT) e-notifications whenever patients experience care events, and Spotlights solution for interactive, real-time dashboards of high-priority performance metrics, using the Outbound HL7 2.5.1 standard integration for e-notifications.

Bamboo Health’s extensive infrastructure and network support the exchange of applications, information, and actionable insights in more than one billion patient encounters per year nationwide. The Pings solution provides Strive Health with real-time visibility into patient care events that will be used to engage patients participating in disease management programs and facilitate post-discharge follow up and medication reconciliation, as well as divert non-crashing patients from the emergency department to other clinically appropriate settings. In conjunction with the Spotlights solution, Strive Health gains the ability to evaluate performance trends and drill down to the patient-level for root-cause analysis, identification, and stratification of at-risk patients to improve care outcomes and transitions while lowering cost.

“As a full-service provider for kidney disease patients, Strive Health is changing the kidney care paradigm to identify patients earlier, prioritize the right care at the right time, and drive better outcomes,” said Masoud Nourmohammadi, Chief Technology Officer at Strive Health. “This makes our selection of Bamboo Health’s innovative solutions a natural fit. Through the use of Pings and Spotlights, Strive’s Kidney HeroesTM clinicians will be immediately notified any time one of our patients gets admitted, discharged, or transferred from a facility. This full, real-time picture of patients’ care journeys aligns with how Strive delivers its distinctive care model, which is centered on clinicians meeting patients where they are and working together to coordinate comprehensive, compassionate care.”

Bamboo Health connects 37 payers and one million clinicians across 50 states, creating one of the most interoperable care coordination networks in the nation. The company’s solutions and technology platform enable customers to optimize value-based outcomes by delivering information, actionable insights, and support for the delivery of whole person care through payer and provider collaboration.
