GLENDALE, Calif., Feb. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Apollo Medical Holdings, Inc. ("ApolloMed" or "the Company") (AMEH), an integrated population health management company, today announced that one of its affiliated medical groups, ApolloMed Hospitalists, has entered into an agreement to provide comprehensive hospitalist services for Allied Pacific of California IPA ("APC"). As part of the agreement, ApolloMed will manage APC admissions at seven hospitals, including five AHMC hospitals. Additionally, ApolloMed has created a 24/7 in-house hospitalist program at AHMC's flagship hospital, Garfield Medical Center, including a nocturnist who will admit and manage patients from 7pm-7am.
Based in Alhambra, California and founded in 1992, APC and its affiliated medical groups are one of the largest independent physician associations in California, with an enrollment of over 500,000 patients under capitation.
"Partnering with ApolloMed reflects our shared commitment to provide patients with the best possible outcomes," stated Kenneth Sim, M.D., Chairman of Allied Pacific of California IPA. "Changes in the healthcare environment are increasing the need for a coordinated approach that focuses on efficiencies in managing patients and on quality patient care. We look forward to collaborating with ApolloMed to effectively manage care and provide positive member experiences."
"This collaboration furthers our relationship with Allied Pacific and we look forward to working with its primary care physicians, specialists and case managers to provide 'Best in Class' care for their patients," stated Warren Hosseinion, M.D., Chief Executive Officer of Apollo Medical Holdings. "We have developed inpatient protocols to effectively manage care and optimize utilization. We also enhance care by developing a transition plan for a timely discharge and appropriate outpatient follow-up to prevent hospital readmissions."
Under this agreement, APC and ApolloMed will work closely in the following areas: patient management during the entire hospital stay, post-discharge care coordination, enhancing inpatient core measures scores, clinical documentation improvement, identification of high-risk patients, transfer of out-of-network patients to in-network hospitals and enhancing patient satisfaction scores. In 2015, APC had approximately 40 hospital admissions per day at these seven hospitals, translating into 14,000 admissions per year.
