Tellus and healthAlign Team up to Improve Community-Based Care for Medicare Advantage

Strategic partnership enables seamless integration across all EVV systems

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL, and ANNAPOLIS, MD, April 2, 2020  Tellus and healthAlign announced a partnership that will enable all providers inside the healthAlign environment to document community-based services in virtually any Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) system.  Tellus is a leading healthcare technology provider focused on Electronic Visit Verification (EVV) and healthAlign is a healthcare technology startup focused on helping payers and providers improve fulfillment across the last mile of community-based care.

“We’re essentially building a ‘secret decoder ring’ for healthcare, linking payers up with the diverse and fragmented universe of community-based providers.  Our goal is to create an intelligent marketplace for community-based care that promotes adherence and independence at home,” said healthAlign founder and CEO, Andy Friedell.  “In order to do that, we need to be able to tap into all the various EVV and documentation systems that our provider partners have chosen.  Tellus is a one-stop-shop that enables us to do that.”

healthAlign recently launched its new homeAlign™ technology which automates referral, credentialing, documentation and claims processing across the spectrum of both traditional and non-traditional community-based providers.   Through this partnership, Tellus will become the interpreter for homeAlign’s™ visit documentation capability — allowing healthAlign provider partners to use virtually any EVV system.

“With the recent changes allowing Medicare Advantage plans to offer more flexible home and community-based benefits, we see a growing need and opportunity to help those plans better document these new services.  We can bring to Medicare Advantage the verification and authentication technology that we currently deploy to help the Medicaid program support this type of programming,” said Tellus founder and CEO Brad Levine.  “healthAlign and its innovative payer partners are leaders in this space, and we are excited to help them improve services for Medicare beneficiaries.”
