Healthwise Gives Organizations the Power to Demonstrate Impact and Deliver Value With the Launch of Healthwise® Analytics

BOISE, ID--(Marketwired - October 29, 2015) - The transition from fee-for-service to fee-for-value is creating major changes in the health care industry in support of achieving the triple aim -- improved health, better care experiences, and lower costs. Health care organizations are increasingly called upon to deliver additional value and demonstrate their impact on the triple aim outcomes. Today, Healthwise, a nonprofit producer of health education, technology, and services, introduced a new reporting and analytics tool called Healthwise® Analytics to give health care organizations the data they need to achieve these goals.

As part of the Healthwise® Care Management Solution, Healthwise Analytics supports this fee-for-value transition by providing organizations with tools to gain deeper insights into how members are engaging and managing their health -- a key to encouraging healthy behaviors and improving outcomes. The Healthwise Care Management Solution already allows care managers the ability to electronically send tailored health education and track how their members are using it. With the addition of Healthwise Analytics, organizations know they are delivering care that matters.

Healthwise Analytics supplies organizations with interactive dashboards, highly intuitive reports, and visually engaging data to demonstrate the value of their services to health plans and other customers. Organizations can use these tools to show member engagement and activation, highlight trends and growth over time, and gain insight on a specific client group, coach, or time period with interactive filters.

"We want to give our customers everything they need to succeed," said Jim Giuffré, Healthwise president and COO. "Healthwise Analytics is the result of over 15 years of work with care management organizations, tapping into our close connection with our customers to continually enhance our solution. The content, technology, and services are all designed to meet their needs and to help more people make better health decisions."

The Healthwise Care Management Solution with Healthwise Analytics seamlessly connects care managers to health education and tools in their workflow and provides members a secure, online message center to access engaging, personalized health education at any time. Healthwise Analytics will also be added to the Healthwise® Patient Engagement Solution, Healthwise®Population Health Solution, and Healthwise® Shared Decision Making Solution.
