On average, Healthentic finds $180,000 in annual savings opportunities for every 1,000 people covered on en employer's health plan.

"Healthentic reports highlight issues that lead to actions, rather than just providing a laundry list of information which has to be interpreted," said Al Lewis, founder and president of the Disease Management Purchasing Consortium, and author of the award-winning Why Nobody Believes the Numbers: Separating Fact from Fiction in Population Health Management. While independent of the Validation Institute and Healthentic, Al is a major supporter of both organizations. "Healthentic is now the only health analytics vendor whose reporting is consistent with best practices for issue identification, and the Validation Institute is the only referee which validates based on those best practices. I am thrilled to see them reach common ground."
