Innovation Care Partners and NextGate Pave Way for Trusted Ecosystem of Provider Data

Physician-led clinical integration network and ACO partners with NextGate for accurate, timely and complete provider data across the continuum


PASADENA, Calif., August 28, 2018 – NextGate, a global leader in healthcare enterprise identification, announced today that Innovation Care Partners (ICP), an affiliate of HonorHealth, has selected its Provider Registry to deliver a trusted, centralized view of provider data across its physician-led clinically integrated network and accountable care organization. The implementation will create a flexible, enterprise-wide platform for efficiently managing ICP’s entire network of providers.

Based in Scottsdale, ICP covers over 100,000 patient lives and includes more than 1,700 physicians and 500 practice locations. ICP is the latest organization to implement NextGate’s cloud-based Provider Registry platform to overcome the complexities of maintaining accurate and complete provider data.

Collectively, hospitals, physicians and health plans spend more than $2 billion annually to maintain the integrity of their provider data. Inaccurate provider information leads to administrative waste, financial penalties, lost revenue and reimbursement, delayed or denied claims, decreased network and physician utilization, and poor patient satisfaction.

“Healthcare enterprises continue to struggle with poor data quality when managing their provider networks. Fragmented multi-vendor systems only compound the problem, giving rise to duplicate, inaccurate and outdated provider information,” said NextGate CEO Andy Aroditis. “NextGate helps organizations eliminate data quality issues devoid of redundant manual tasks and intervention with an automated, fully-managed solution.”

NextGate’s cloud-ready Provider Registry enables automated data synchronization and reconciliation of individual and organizational data across financial, clinical and credentialing systems with a single provider ID. The registry aggregates, cleans and maintains up-to-date information about individual providers and provider groups, including but not limited to, specialties, locations, hospital privileges, spoken languages, practice hours, and ACO affiliations.

“Timely, reliable provider data is a fundamental component in driving operational efficiencies and positive experiences among patients, physicians and staff,” said Faron Thompson, Chief Operating Officer of ICP. “Leveraging NextGate’s flexible cloud capabilities and deep market knowledge in provider identification will help us to create a more cohesive network while allowing us to scale with even greater agility.”
