Stellar Health and UNC Health Collaborate to Engage in Value-Based Care Initiatives

“Partnering with Stellar gives UNC Health Alliance an innovative edge in driving superior patient outcomes and rewarding our providers and care teams for their hard work,” said Robb Malone, PharmD, Chief Operating Officer at UNC Health Alliance. “Using the Stellar platform, we can put dynamic, actionable information in the hands of our independent providers even with their varying staffing structures, electronic medical records and workflows.”

Designed to improve health outcomes, Stellar’s web-based, point-of-care platform leverages historical patient information to prompt primary care providers and their care teams with granular action recommendations within their daily workflow. Stellar will support UNC Health Alliance to offer real-time incentives tied to the completion of these high-value actions, rewarding providers and care team members within their network that are going above and beyond to deliver exceptional care to thousands of patients.

“The simplicity of the Stellar platform empowers our entire care team to deliver the best possible care while also increasing our monthly revenue,” said Jonathan Fowler, VP of Operations for Generations Family Practice and Cary Medical Management, a large primary care group within UNC Health’s network. “Partnering with UNC Health and Stellar aligns with our commitment to provide advanced technology to our independent primary care providers within their existing workflows.”

“UNC Health Alliance’s historical results demonstrate they are already a leader in the industry,” said Zack Caplan, Director of Provider Network and Strategy at Stellar Health. “This new partnership aims to help keep their hands on the wheel of performance as they take on even more advanced value-based arrangements across their network.”

The partnership aligns with the core of Stellar’s mission, to empower primary care practices to deliver value-based care that always keeps the patient top of mind. “We’re thrilled to kick off our partnership with a progressive health system like UNC Health,” adds Michael Meng, CEO of Stellar Health. “We invite health insurers in the North Carolina market to join the collaboration, so we may continue to engage providers in value-based care initiatives that will improve the quality of care for their patients across the state.”
