UpStream is a global risk-bearing organization in the healthcare sector that uses a coordinated care model to support patients facing medically complex conditions. UpStream’s operating model prioritizes building close relationships between UpStream clinical professionals, who are embedded at Upstream expense into contracted physician practices, and patients to manage chronic diseases. Team members, known as UpStreamers, work collaboratively towards a goal of identifying interventions that reduce patient frustrations, increase clinical adherence, and, as a result, improve quality of life. UpStream accomplishes this through an integrated care model, which creates infrastructure and resources for the whole person’s care and is supported by Medicare’s Chronic Care Management (CCM) program. Embedded UpStream pharmacists, nurses, and medical assistants work in or with each physician practice to reduce acute care needs. The Innovaccer HealthCloud is the central platform that enables UpStream’s distributed workforce to work on a common set of tools. Innovaccer Inc., the Health Cloud company, is a leading San Francisco-based healthcare technology company committed to accelerating innovation in healthcare.
