Nation’s largest Social Care Network expands presence in New York and beyond following new integration partnership with Foothold Care Management

AUSTIN, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Findhelp, the nation’s most trusted and widely used closed-loop referral management software company, is proud to announce a new partnership with Foothold Technology, the leading provider of Human Services Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Care Coordination software. Together, these technology platforms will bridge the gap between mental and behavioral health care and social care, making it easier for providers in New York and beyond to support whole-person care.

This integration will support enhanced care coordination to seamlessly integrate Findhelp’s extensive referral capabilities into Foothold Care Management (FCM), offering an end-to-end solution to manage and coordinate care within a single interface, significantly reducing administrative burdens and improving care delivery. Building on the trusted FCM platform, this integration will simplify the learning curve for staff, fostering quicker adoption and utilization of Findhelp’s resources and enhancing staff’s capability to serve their members effectively.

“We are very excited to continue expanding our products and services to help organizations in New York and beyond better support the needs of their community,” said Julia Jones, Vice President of Network Development at Findhelp. “As Findhelp partners with SCNs across the state, Findhelp, and Foothold users will benefit from this new collaboration that supports interoperability between our two technology platforms, making it even easier for SCNs to address health-related social needs and meet the requirements of New York’s 1115 Medicaid Waiver program.”

Through bi-directional integration, this partnership will ensure up-to-date, accurate member information and referral data within FCM, supporting a holistic approach to member care and streamlined billing processes across SCNs. Ultimately, having visibility into the referrals that are being created will give SCNs the data they need to showcase the difference being made at both the individual and aggregate levels across their network.

Foothold is a pioneer in the Human Services EHR and Care Coordination domain and brings unparalleled expertise and a deep commitment to New York’s healthcare ecosystem to this partnership. With a strong presence in over 60% of New York Health Homes, and serving 120,000 members monthly, Foothold’s care management platform – FCM – is ideally positioned to support SCN operations and care delivery. FCM’s integration with FindHelp’s offerings will ensure an interoperable approach to addressing the Health Related Social Needs of Medicaid beneficiaries.

“Our alliance with Findhelp is more than strategic; it’s essential,” says Alyza Tarmohamed, CEO of Foothold. “This collaboration provides a cornerstone for SCNs, ensuring they’re built on a foundation of seamless comprehensive care coordination. Together with Findhelp, we’re dedicated to providing an integrated platform that streamlines their operations and amplifies their capacity to deliver exceptional, whole-person care. It’s a partnership tailored to the unique challenges and opportunities of SCNs.”
