Lee Health Advances Value-Based Care Through Agreement with Cedar Gate Technologies

Greenwich, Connecticut and Fort Meyers, Florida – Lee Health and Cedar Gate Technologies (Cedar Gate) today announced a new three-year agreement to accelerate Lee Health’s value-based care initiatives.

Committed to improving quality for patients and controlling its health care spend, Lee Health has been aggressively moving towards value-based care and away from fee-for-service as part of its population health strategy.

“We are proud to partner with Lee Health as they grow their value-based care network to better serve their communities,” said David B. Snow Jr., CEO of Cedar Gate Technologies. “Our experience in creating high-performing networks and Lee Health’s commitment to empowering its providers, patients and payers to succeed in value-based models, creates an incredible foundation for long-term success.”

With this new agreement, Lee Health will be able to track and measure all risk-based programs on a single system using ISAAC™, Cedar Gate’s analytics platform. The Cedar Gate team also uses ISAAC to create actionable insights so Lee Health can proactively identify systemic opportunities for change that will improve the financial and clinical performance across all value-based programs.

“As a leading value-based health system in Florida, we take our commitment to controlling costs and increasing quality for our patients very seriously,” said Kevin Dotson, Vice President, Actuarial Services, Lee Health. “With Cedar Gate’s support, we will have the insights and services required to boost our programs and facilitate the close collaboration needed between our providers and payers to succeed.”

Cedar Gate systems help clients optimize the performance of all risk-based contracts, including upside only, upside downside, risk corridors, prospective bundles, retrospective bundles and global capitation. Using ISAAC, a cloud-based SaaS platform, Cedar Gate enables payers, providers and self-insured employers to optimize risk-based contracts, reduce medical spend, improve medical loss ratios and improve provider network and clinical performance – all on a single platform.
