Medecision Launches Aerial™ Insights

On-Demand Population Health Data and Analytics Infrastructure, and New Predictive Alerts Help Risk-Bearers Focus on Improved Operational Performance and Financial Success

WAYNE, PA--(Marketwired - December 22, 2015) - Medecision, the leader in population health management solutions for risk-bearing health organizations like provider- and payer-sponsored ACOs, hospitals, IDNs and health plans, announced the release of Aerial™ Insights, a secure, on-demand platform that offers data aggregation and curation from multiple formats; real-time data feeds across all health system participants, locations, medical groups and conditions; and sophisticated analytics and automation. With Insights, Medecision customers gain a new level of control of their clinical, quality and financial performance through population health predictors and a new foundation for targeted care management, care coordination, and member and patient engagement.

Aerial Insights' on-demand data infrastructure meets the highest-trust service principles for security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy. The platform enables data aggregation and curation from data formats like claims, pharmacy, lab, demographics, utilization management authorizations and care management interactions. Feeds are sourced, real time, from EMRs; Admission, Discharge and Transfer (ADT) transactions; remote-monitoring devices; and "quantified self" digital health technologies. 

"Medecision is building on our 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," said Deborah M. Gage, president and CEO, Medecision. "Aerial Insights is the first step on that journey, bringing operational performance and financial success into focus for health organizations eager to reduce risk, lower administrative costs and improve quality of care."

As the foundation for Aerial, Medecision's population health management solution, Insights enhances all applications in the Aerial suite for care management, care coordination and consumer care, as well as the new Aerial Alerts application.

Introducing Aerial Alerts

Aerial Alerts offers member- and patient-centered predictive algorithms which run daily against all data available to trigger workflows, tasks, reporting and more. Subscribers have a wide range of options as to how the triggers impact workflows. Alerts can change a member's or patient's status in the care management queue, generate a new rules-based task for a care manager or coordinator, or post a secure message to a member or patient's Aerial InCircle "Circle." Alerts are designed to help health organizations focus on improved operational performance and financial success, and access to them opens up a world of opportunities for those seeking more targeted clinical decision support and management of patients and members.

Medecision collaborated with leading healthcare organizations to develop the first set of Alerts available in Q1 2016, focused on surveillance, early detection and risk remediation for:

  • Avoidable readmissions.
  • Decline in medication adherence.
  • Decline in health status.
