Executives with the Franklin-based company have said Iasis will focus on growing both its provider business and managed care operations in 2015.
MissionPoint, Saint Thomas Health's accountable care organization, announced today it has been awarded a $80,000 grant from the Clarksville-Montgomery County Community Health Foundation to launch a chronic disease management program.
The pilot program will serve 400 uninsured patients living with diabetes in Montgomery County and Fort Campbell.
"We are very excited for the work that this grant will allow us to do in the Montgomery County area," Jason Dinger, MissionPoint CEO, said in a release. "Through this grant, we will continue our mission of serving some of the most vulnerable in our community.
Dinger said the funding would pay for case management services for patients, with the goal of helping them better manage their diabetes.
"We selected MissionPoint as the recipient of this grant because of their commitment to the health and wellness of the uninsured, as well as their proven track record of improving community health, reducing costs, increasing access and enhancing the patient experience," said Joey Smith, board member of the Clarksville-Montgomery County Community Health Foundation.
