Medecision Selected to Present Innovative Mobile Application at Health 2.0 Annual Fall Conference 2014

Aerial™ InCircle Enables Consumers, Caregivers and Providers to Effectively Coordinate Care Through "Social Circle"

WAYNE, PA and SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 23, 2014) - Medecision, the leader in population health management solutions for risk-bearing entities, including provider- and payer-sponsored ACOs, IDNs, and health plans, announced it has been selected to present the company's social networking-like mobile application, Aerial™ InCircle at the Health 2.0 Annual Fall Conference, which is dedicated to promoting, showcasing and catalyzing new and cutting-edge technologies in the healthcare industry.

Medecision's Abisheg Elijah, director of strategy and innovation, representing the team of employees who won one of the Company's Innovation Challenges, will demonstrate the breakthrough application which connects consumers, caregivers and providers through a person-centric "social care circle," as part of the event's "Continued Care: Platforms for Patient-Provider Communication" session. This session will feature technologies that help to foster better connections between patients and providers.

Aerial InCircle addresses the healthcare industry's growing need for technology that helps patients and providers more accurately communicate. Use of the application answers this pressing challenge by effectively connecting and facilitating communication between patients, providers and caregivers, which in turn, better promotes patients' compliance with their care plans through increased care coordination. Through this, the InCircle app supports healthier consumers, engaged caregivers and connected care teams, translating into higher quality and more cost-effective care for risk-bearing healthcare organizations and improved patient outcomes.

"With over 95 million Americans currently using mHealth technologies, it's become clear that healthcare organizations must leverage mobile applications to better engage consumers -- especially as they pursue population health management and coordinated care initiatives, where patient-provider engagement is critical," said Deborah M. Gage, president and CEO, Medecision. "Recognizing this, we challenged our innovators this year to create cutting-edge mobile technologies that meet the needs of both consumers and providers. We're excited to showcase this innovation at the Health 2.0 Annual Fall Conference, and we will continue working to change the way healthcare is delivered to support the high-performing, quality healthcare consumer experience of tomorrow."

Aerial InCircle includes various features promoting proactive care coordination and consumer engagement:

  • Secure messaging between patients, providers and caregivers
  • Management of care timelines and appointments
  • Monitoring of a patient's health by caregivers and providers to ensure care plans are completed
  • Increased visibility and extended collaboration across the care cycle, promoting population health management initiatives

Medecision will be presenting the Aerial InCircle mobile application at 11 a.m. PST on Tuesday, Sept. 23. Join the conversation online using @Medecision #health2con.
