St. Louis, MO, and Moorestown, NJ, (October 1, 2018) – Tabula Rasa HealthCare, Inc. (“TRHC”) (NASDAQ:TRHC), a healthcare technology company advancing the field of medication safety, today announced its subsidiary Capstone Performance Systems has seen considerable growth since its May 2018 acquisition of Peak PACE Health Plan Management and the establishment of its PACE Technical Assistance Center in June.
In addition to the six new contracts for the first six months announced in July, eleven new contracts have been acquired in the last several weeks. Capstone’s newest contracts call for providing enhanced services to seven operational PACE organizations and partnering with four new organizations, effective October 1, 2018 (3) and March 1, 2019 (1). The majority of these are for Capstone’s new Technical Assistance Center, offering consulting services for PACE Organizations at the sponsor exploration phase for new start-up programs, along with support for existing PACE Organizations interested in expanding or enhancing services such as opening a location in a different area for expansion purposes.
“The Capstone organization is proud of the service it provides to the PACE marketplace, and it is our privilege to continue to support PACE organizations that provide care to the frail elderly population throughout the United States,” said TRHC Executive Vice President Kim Browning, CHC, PMP, who oversees Capstone Performance Systems. PACE is a federal program benefiting individuals 55 and older who are nursing home eligible. PACE includes 240 centers in 31 states serving a growing number of eligible Medicare and Medicaid participants. The goal of the program is to keep participants living in their own homes while receiving quality care.
Capstone Performance Systems provides Medicare risk adjustment and operations consulting to PACE and similar value-based healthcare organizations. Its Peak Health Plan Management Services division performs back-office functions for PACE organizations, including Third Party Administration (TPA) to manage claims from healthcare organizations. The TAC partners with PACE organizations at all levels of growth to provide guidance for successful operations.
“An increase in new services to existing clients, as well as acquiring new clients, has fueled this impressive growth,” said TRHC President Orsula V. Knowlton, PharmD. “Capstone’s Technical Assistance Center (TAC) is a good example. It provides services to organizations exploring the feasibility of establishing a PACE program or developing a PACE start-up. The TAC also works with existing PACE programs seeking to improve their operations.”
Recently, the National PACE Association (NPA) announced “PACE 2.0: Charting a Course for Exponential PACE Growth”. The stated goal is to achieve 200,000 PACE participants by 2028. “We continue to have an ongoing opportunity to grow and expand in the PACE market to support clients and enhance participant outcomes,” said Knowlton.
Capstone is part of TRHC’s new CareVention HealthCare (“CareVention”) technology and service division. The CareVention division will offer an integrated technology platform, including advanced data analytics, as well as consulting services for PACE and other financially at-risk healthcare organizations to support growth and optimize the care they provide to their participants.
