IRVING, TX – December 2, 2020 – Lightbeam Health Solutions, the leader in end-to-end population health management solutions and services, is pleased to announce the incredible success of Amarillo Legacy Medical ACO (ALMA) in their substantial reduction of skilled nursing facility (SNF) and home health agency (HHA) utilization by 15% in one quarter.

“Amarillo Legacy Medical ACO’s use of the Lightbeam platform to help communicate and make sense of their data shows that major impacts can take little time with the right solutions,” said Lightbeam CEO Pat Cline. “The organization has also continued to make incredible progress while withstanding the many challenges that COVID-19 has brought.
