CHICAGO (November 7, 2017) –  Texture Health, a Chicago-based technology company, is breaking new ground with an integrated, innovative and patient-centric care management platform, that enables better coordination, communication and collaboration throughout the healthcare system that drives better outcomes and lower costs to the public health system.

Cook County Health and Hospitals System will use Texture Health as its primary care management platform for all patient populations, Texture Health announced today.

“Cook County Health and Hospitals System can leverage Texture Health’s technology and redefine their care management models with greater connection and collaboration among providers, care teams and patients,” said Suresh Kumar, chief technology officer, Texture Health.

Texture Health combines healthcare and technical expertise to create an integrated, advanced and highly-configurable, cloud-based and mobile technology solution that help providers, health plans, patients and the people who care for them connect, communicate and collaborate like never before.

Texture puts population care management, patient engagement and data visualization all in one place. The platform features a configurable, role-based dashboard, in-depth analytics and seamless integration into existing systems, to track important goal-based metrics, like total cost of care, patient satisfaction, provider performance and network utilization.

“Texture Health provides a 360-degree care management view of patients. Our customizable platform leads to higher patient engagement and improved outcomes. Unlike other platforms, care management, patient engagement and analytics are all in one integrated solution,” Kumar said.

Texture compiles disparate clinical and administrative data sources to create reliable, longitudinal records of clinical activity. The platform is highly configurable and role base for scalable care management support, which leads to greater patient and clinician engagement.

Texture Health is a joint investment between Gary Comer Inc. (GCI) and Safety Net Connect (SNC) in collaboration with Medical Home Network (MHN).  Medical Home Network pioneered an innovative, patient-centered, team-based model that is transforming care delivery to safety-net patients in Cook County.
