Foothold Technology, a leading cloud-based behavioral health and human services EHR software provider backed by ASG, announced its acquisition of Relevant Health Homes, the leading care management platform for Health Homes in New York, from Relevant Healthcare.
The Relevant Health Homes product has joined the Foothold umbrella and will soon become known as Foothold Care Management. The entire Relevant Health Homes team has also joined Foothold, and will continue to support the product’s customers. Jacob Hodes, a co-founder at Relevant, has joined Foothold as VP of Care Management, and will continue to lead the Health Homes team. Foothold’s AWARDS product will remain Foothold’s core EHR offering.
Relevant’s other line of business, which provides analytics and population health tools to community health centers, will remain independent from Foothold and will retain the Relevant name and brand. Its work will continue to be led by Brandon Hamilton, Relevant’s other co-founder, who has assumed the role of CEO. In addition to his role at Foothold, Hodes will also maintain a leadership role at Relevant.
“Relevant and Foothold share similar roots and similar missions. Our teams are deeply committed to the agencies we serve and to the people those agencies serve,” says Tyler Hoffman, CEO of Foothold. “I am thrilled to work with Jacob and welcome the Relevant Health Homes team to the Foothold family. They’ve built an exceptional product, deep customer relationships, and an amazing culture. Together, we can accelerate growth of the Health Homes product as Foothold Care Management, and mutually serve our customers better than we could have before.”
Relevant Health Homes was launched in 2012 as an internal project at Community Healthcare Network, a Federally Qualified Health Center that also serves as a New York State-designated lead Health Home. The application grew to become a full-featured care management platform, focused on simplicity and ease of use for care managers while meeting the administrative and compliance requirements of Health Homes.
According to the company, the platform is used by 129 Care Management Agencies across seven lead Health Homes in New York State. Statewide, more than 40% of the Health Home membership is served by the platform, while in the downstate region, two-thirds of the Health Home membership is served by the platform.
“Building RHH for nine years has been an incredible journey,” said Hodes. “I’m so proud of the team we’ve built, our collaborative work with Health Homes, and the tools we’ve created to support care managers on the ground,” he added. “The move to Foothold, and the backing of ASG, will ensure that the platform continues to grow and thrive as the care management landscape evolves.”
“This move also sets Relevant up for continued success,” said Hamilton. “We’re now a company with a single focus: helping community health centers improve patient outcomes. And we’re in a better position than ever to execute on that mission.”
