The Pings Solution Delivers Admission, Discharge, and Transfer Data to Streamline Care Collaboration and Improve Outcomes for Oak Street Health Medicare Patients


BOSTON, MA – (December 15, 2021) – Bamboo Health™, formerly Appriss Health and PatientPing, a healthcare technology solutions company focused on fostering care collaboration and providing information and actionable insights across the entire continuum of care, today announced that it has expanded its partnership with Oak Street Health (NYSE: OSH), a network of value-based primary care centers for adults on Medicare, to extend access to the Pings™ solution for real-time admission, discharge, and transfer (ADT) data. Bamboo Health’s comprehensive patient data enables Oak Street Health to simplify care collaboration, initiate timely care interventions post-discharge, and achieve value-based care goals in line with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Star Rating Program and Direct Contracting Model.

Pings real-time data provides Oak Street Health with a better understanding of where patients are in the care continuum across Bamboo Health’s network of 2,500 hospitals, 37 payers, 7,800 post-acute facilities, 25,000 pharmacies, 45 state governments, and hundreds of other providers such as Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), social and human service agencies, urgent cares, behavioral health organizations, and more.

“Bamboo Health’s Pings solution fits seamlessly into Oak Street Health’s commitment to providing comprehensive, patient-centered primary care,” said Drew Crenshaw, Chief Population Health Officer. “Bamboo Health’s real-time information about patient care encounters across provider settings helps ensure our patients are appropriately discharged with the right care plan and reconnected to primary care to drive the best possible patient outcomes.”

“To ensure high-quality patient experience, care teams such as those at Oak Street Health need care coordination information and tools that allow them to seamlessly collaborate across multiple settings and geographies, particularly during vulnerable moments in their patients’ care journeys,” said Rob Cohen, president and general manager of Bamboo Health. “We are proud to extend our partnership with Oak Street Health’s network of value-based primary care centers for adults on Medicare. By connecting Oak Street Health with thousands of healthcare organizations and providers across the continuum of care and the country, we can help them receive the critical patient information they need, when they need it, to improve care transitions.”
