The joint solution harnesses the power of approved Blue Button 2.0 API and comprehensive data analysis tools to improve care coordination and outcomes for senior patients.
Arlington, November 19, 2020: CareJourney, a leading healthcare analytics company, announced today a collaboration with Bluerock Care, a primary care provider in Washington D.C., and Trusty.care, a platform for Medicare producers, FMOS, and financial professionals. The joint solution combines the power of Trusty.care’s easy-to-use and approved Blue Button App, with powerful data aggregation, cleansing, and reporting capabilities of CareJourney’s analytics platform to collect, analyze, and distribute beneficiary information to Bluerock Care providers and caregivers.
“We are excited about this partnership as it not only allows patients to securely access and exercise total control of their own health information, but also share it with providers they trust, such as Bluerock, to improve their care,” said Aneesh Chopra, CareJourney President. “We are eager to serve Bluerock by enriching the information that is shared via Trusty.care’s app, including openly-available algorithms to surface care gaps, inform delivery improvement opportunities, and facilitate better care coordination.”
How Does it Work?
Older adults and their caregivers deserve care that is easily accessible, with a unique, patient-centered experience and optimal outcomes. Bluerock Care patients will be able to use the Trusty.care application to give Blue Rock permission to access their claims history via the Blue Button 2.0 process. CareJourney will enrich this data and returns actionable population insights to Bluerock to better care for their patients.
“The healthcare system has become increasingly complex for retirees and Trusty.care brings much-needed transparency for a financially vulnerable population,” said Joseph Schneier, CEO & Founder of Trusty.care. “Our platform matches our clients’ customers with appropriate insurance products, public benefits, and cost-saving tools. Working with CareJourney is a perfect alignment of mission as we both seek to improve the health of older Americans.”
Why it Matters
With recent strides made in opening up government data to make it available to the American people, Medicare, Medicare Advantage, and Medicaid data are now accessible to run research studies, understand areas of high value and low-value care, and ultimately improve care coordination and outcomes for patients, especially seniors. The joint solution takes advantage of CMS’s Blue Button 2.0 and benefits all the stakeholders involved in a patient’s healthcare journey.
- Get visibility into your own care history and have the flexibility to share it with your caregivers so they can provide you the best treatment at your next visit
- Enable your provider’s organization to enroll you in care management initiatives to effectively manage your care
For Providers and Caregivers:
- Equip providers and caregivers with a longitudinal view of their patient population to better inform treatment

“Most seniors have multiple conditions, and medical histories scattered over a range of different specialties,” said Dr. Marc Berg, CEO of Bluerock Care. “Collaborating with Trusty.care and CareJourney we will be able to serve our patients much better, both individually and as a population. With this data, we’ll be able to better assess risks, and truly manage our patients proactively.”
