Medecision Earns Coveted Spot on Healthcare Informatics 2016 HCI 100 List

Revenue Growth Drives Company's Second Consecutive Inclusion in Prestigious Industry Ranking

WAYNE, PA--(Marketwired - June 14, 2016) - Medecision, the leader in population health management solutions for risk-bearing entities like provider- and payer-sponsored ACOs, hospitals, IDNs and health plans, announced today it has been named in Healthcare Informatics' 2016 HCI 100 list of the leading top 100 vendors with the highest revenues derived from healthcare IT products and services earned in the United States in the last fiscal year. The HCI 100 list has been compiled for 25 years, providing a unique and well-respected financial overview of vendors in the healthcare IT market.

Medecision broke into the HCI top 100 in 2015 and continues to exhibit strong revenue growth, driven by:

  • Health plan demand for compliant complex care management applications that quickly make the risk associated with government beneficiaries predictable and actionable.
  • Health plan implementation of analytics capabilities to control clinical, quality and financial performance through population health predictors.
  • Medecision's focus since 2013 in combining clinical and financial data within applications that help emerging categories of risk-bearing entities comply and thrive under new revenue models.
  • Healthcare payer and provider shift to true population health strategies, which include a community-based focus on patients and members throughout their lives, not just when they become sick. This is driving demand for Medecision's flagship Aerial™ solution, which begins with data aggregation and analysis to identify and stratify a patient population; supports the entire process of care management and care coordination to deliver and evaluate interventions; and continues the last mile with applications to directly engage patients in a closed-loop model.

Whether healthcare organizations are forming ACOs and integrated delivery networks, participating in the Medicare Shared Savings Program for ACOs, investigating payment bundling from CMS, seeking to avoid readmission penalties, or more, progressive organizations are partnering with Medecision for the proven health IT capabilities they need to take on clinical and financial risk at each phase of their transition to value-based care.

"Our strong continued growth is largely due to our commitment to helping organizations, no matter where they are on the PHM maturity scale, find ways to make accountable predictable -- that is, to successfully take on clinical and financial risk," said Deborah M. Gage, president and chief executive officer at Medecision. "Our presence on the HCI 100 list for the second year is also a testament to our viability and stability as a leader in our industry and as a long-term innovation partner for our clients."

Inclusion in the HCI 100 ranking underscores Medecision's continued innovation and growth within the past year, including:

  • Updates to the Aerial application portfolio to support growth in both government managed care and providers taking on risk, including all-new user interface, support for management of dual-eligibles, multiple service plans, applications to support closed-loop patient engagement, and streamlined care planning tools;
  • Introduction of Aerial Insights, building on the Company's strengths in cloud-based big-data management; care management and coordination workflow; and consumer engagement technologies to deliver a new class of apps and services that discover insights from massive amounts of data -- and improve by learning;
  • Expansion of the Company's client base substantially with industry innovators, including Johns Hopkins, Network Health, Health New England, and more; and
  • Partnership with Optum to launch a first-to-market services-based offering for states' Medicaid Management Information Systems (MMIS), the critical IT foundation of the public health program for low-income people.
