Medecision to Showcase Population Health Client Successes and New Solutions at HIMSS16

Aerial™ for Population Health Management Helping Clients Achieve Results in Value-Based Care Models

WAYNE, PA and LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - February 25, 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 will showcase new population health management solutions for Integrated Delivery Networks (IDNs) moving to value-based care at the 2016 HIMSS Annual Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas from February 29 - March 4, 2016. Under the theme, 'Make Accountable Predictable', Medecision will focus on its commitment to helping organizations transition to value-based care, sustainably, at the conference.

Located in booth #3438, Medecision will feature:

  • Demonstrations of the Company's acclaimed Aerial™ platform for Population Health Management, including new modular solutions specifically targeted to help Integrated Delivery Networks proactively manage risks, costs and outcomes across patient populations.
  • A partnership with top KLAS-rated population health vendor, Forward Health Group (FHG), to help optimize population health measures. FHG can help extract, cleanse and validate data from multiple systems and send those data to Aerial, which helps identify risk and stratify patient populations for impactful outreach and intervention.

"Healthcare organizations are entering a time of great opportunity as we're working toward practical application of value-based and accountable care initiatives," said Deborah Gage, president and chief executive officer at Medecision. "Not every organization's goals and needs are the same. We are thrilled to return to the HIMSS Annual Conference this year, as it provides an opportunity to demonstrate how we've worked closely with leading IDNs and provider-owned health plans to put the right technology in place to support their population health and accountable care efforts."

Medecision customers will be featured in venues throughout the conference, sharing important insights into their transition to value-based care. Speakers include:

  • Dr. Neil Kudler, Medecision customer and chief medical information officer at Baystate Health, and Larry Schor, senior vice president of corporate development and analytics at Medecision, are hosting a session titled "Population Health is an Evidence-based Team Sport." The session, held in the Population Health Pavilion Wednesday, March 2 at 3:15 p.m. PT, will focus on using the concept of box scores to move the needle on care quality, cost and risk management.
  • Medecision customer Dr. Terri Steinberg, chief health information officer and vice president of population health informatics at Christiana Care Health System, is hosting a HIMSS16 session titled "The Evolution of Population Health." The session, hosted on Tuesday, March 1 at 10:00 a.m. PT, will detail how Christiana Care successfully launched a population health management program and how the health system used the Aerial platform to advance the evolution of the program with predictive and regressive analytics. 

The potential for health IT to transform care would not be possible without the dedication and determination of healthcare information and management systems professionals. Conference attendees interested in embracing innovative IT solutions, crafting new business agendas or partnering with a variety of top-tier healthcare clients, are invited to visit Medecision in the HIMSS16 Career Services Center to discover more about opportunities to join the growing Medecision team. Susan Newton, executive vice president and chief people officer at Medecision, will host an educational session in the Career Services Center, "Culture Shock: Predicting Your Success," focused on how to predict the best work culture for healthcare organization employees.
