Comprehensive, first-of-its-kind program in Nevada will deploy digital tools and health advocates to address a range of prenatal and maternal health needs
SilverSummit Healthplan, a Nevada-based managed care plan and wholly-owned subsidiary of Centene Corporation, and Wildflower Health, a technology and services company committed to transforming care delivery for women’s health, today announced a strategic partnership to improve the quality of maternity care for Medicaid beneficiaries in Nevada. In response to the state’s D-minus score on the March of Dimes’ maternal health report card, the partnership aims to address a range of HEDIS measures that significantly impact maternal health outcomes through digital tools, an established health advocate network and other community resources to empower members to actively participate in their prenatal and postpartum care.
“In Nevada, we have an amazing network of obstetric providers, innovative health plans and access to emerging technologies that support maternal health, but what’s been missing is bringing all of these pieces together in a way that more effectively cares for expectant mothers,” said Dr. Steven Evans, chief medical officer for SilverSummit HealthPlan. “We are confident this effort will boost quality and improve the overall experience for the women we serve.”
Women’s Health Associates of Southern Nevada (WHASN) and other leading practices across the SilverSummit coverage region are also participating in this initiative through a networked digital experience. Patients are automatically connected to Wildflower Health Advocates via a shared digital app that is integrated with each practice’s Electronic Medical Record system.
“Patients are hungry for good information during pregnancy, and how they can engage with digital tools or additional personalized support,” said Dr. Rebecca Herrero, president and CEO of Women’s Health Associates of Southern Nevada and a member of SilverSummit’s physician advisory board. “As one of the OB groups participating in this initiative, our practice can extend the care we deliver to expectant mothers in a truly meaningful way.”
