THE CURANT HEALTH STORY
WITH US IT’S PERSONAL
Successfully managing chronic disease is personal for the founders of Curant Health. Each of the company’s founders has family members diagnosed with at least one chronic ailment, and each founder independently arrived at the conclusion that pharmacists are the healthcare providers best suited to fill the growing gap in chronic patient care. Together, the founders decided to form a healthcare company that combined the multiple patient care processes that have proven to be most beneficial to their own family members. With their combined 65 years of healthcare experience, they knew that chronic disease state patients both wanted and needed more support. Patients needed a healthcare company that treated the “whole patient,” not just a patient’s chronic disease. It turns out that the same patient care processes identified by the founders as working well for their own families also worked to achieve success for thousands of other patients.
THE CURANT HEALTH PATIENT CARE MODEL
Founded in 2000, Curant Health treats tens of thousands of patients throughout the United States every year through its medication management protocols and supports its provider partners with its award winning EMR, MedPlan. Focused on driving improved outcomes through adherence and boasting a 98% patient retention rate, Curant’s healthcare professionals provide individualized care proven to improve the lives of the most difficult to treat, chronically ill patients.
…AND THE PROOF THAT IT WORKS
Curant’s programs are shown through peer-reviewed studies to increase medication adherence and reduce hospital readmissions.
In 2009 Curant Health commissioned a study on existing HIV patients to investigate the impact of its patient care and medication management model on the clinical outcomes of this challenging patient set. The results were dramatic, with Curant Health patients enjoying marked improvements in medication adherence and associated lab results (CD4 counts, viral loads).
In 2010 Purdue University College of Pharmacy and Amedisys, the largest home health care provider in the country, requested that Curant Health partner with them in a nationwide study on hospital readmissions. The study validated that the Curant Health patient support program provides for a dramatic reduction in hospital readmission rates and drives improved positive health outcomes.
Today Curant is a team of healthcare experts who provide individualized, patient-centered services including medication management proven to deliver improved health outcomes. Over 60% of our team is comprised of professionals whose daily work directly impacts patient outcomes.
Curant Health has established an impressive record as one of the fastest growing healthcare companies in the nation. In 2015 Curant made its third consecutive appearance on the Inc. 500|5000 list, ranking #4 for fastest growing, large healthcare companies. We have received the Georgia Fast 40 and Atlanta Business Chronicle Trendsetters awards every year since 2013, and our patient management platform, MedPlan™, has been recognized by Microsoft as a finalist for the Customer Excellence Award.
