Cigna-HealthSpring partners with Intel-GE

Cigna-HealthSpring and partner Intel-GE Care Innovations are expanding a population health program focused on patients with congestive heart failure.

Intel-GE is a joint venture between the chip maker and General Electric's health care division that has provided tablets to virtually connect patients to Cigna-HealthSpring nurse practitioners. Patients also are given blood pressure cuffs and scales to chart their daily metrics on the tablet, allowing them to manage their condition at home.

A pilot version of the program engaged 50 patients and the expansion will reach up to 250. The goal is to reduce hospitalizations and readmissions.

"We are dedicated to helping our customers get more from life and the success of the pilot program shows what an invaluable opportunity we have to truly make a positive impact in our customers' lives," Dr. Jim Lancaster, Cigna HealthSpring senior medical director, said in a release. "Many people with congestive heart failure find themselves back in the hospital within a matter of weeks after returning home, so it's important that we continue to see new and innovative solutions to help them better manage their health."
