Farzad Mostashari, MD, co-founder and CEO of Aledade and former national coordinator of Health Information Technology, discusses the benefits of Aledade’s technology, combined with its strategies and analytics, and how these tools are implemented among the practices with which Aledade is working.

How does Aledade improve technology use in ACOs?

You know people say, “What is Aledade’s ‘special sauce’? What makes it special?” And I think it’s the combination of being able to take technologies of Edwin Miller, our chief technology officer. You know, he built athenaClinicals, he was at Practice Fusion and Care Cloud—basically any cloud-based EHR that’s actually ever worked in small practices, he had a hand in developing. So we have that, but I think the strength that we bring to it is the ability to integrate the technology and the strategy and the analytics into workflow.

It’s that mix of knowing what to do and being able to actually implement these in practice. And there are so many folks who think that you can fight an air campaign here and just, you know, have analytics in the cloud and that’ll, you know, somehow magically change practice. And what, I think, our special sauce, if there is any, is the ability to have that world-class technology, analytics, strategy, regulatory understanding but also to be able to bring it down and implement, side by side, shoulder to shoulder, with primary care docs who really share our mission, our passion, for what we’re doing.

And we’re growing but what makes me more excited isn’t the growth, it’s actually seeing change in the care that patients are receiving.
