On a Roll: Following Chilmark Best-of Breed Selection, Wellcentive Earns Early Leader Ranking in KLAS Population Health Management Report

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - Nov 14, 2013) - The inaugural KLAS report, "Population Health Management 2013, Scouting the PHM Roster," ranks Wellcentive as an "Early Leader" among population health management (PHM) solution providers. Wellcentive's KLAS recognition comes on the heels of a best-of-breed selection in Chilmark's 2013 Clinical Analytics for Population Health Market Trends Report, when Chilmark described Wellcentive as a "turn-key PHM solution."

Wellcentive is entirely vendor-agnostic, seamlessly aggregating and normalizing data from a multitude of electronic health records, practice management systems, health information exchanges, payers and other data systems into a comprehensive and actionable PHM solution.

KLAS interviewed providers about their experience with 23 named vendors to determine which have established initial leadership in this critical and growing market space. Noting that the nascent PHM category does not yet have sufficient live sites for a formal rating, KLAS placed vendors into one of three categories -- Early Leader, Proven Potential, and Emerging Stories -- based on such criteria as breadth of portfolio, depth of PHM experience and delivery performance.

"We appreciate the comprehensive research completed by KLAS, and we are delighted to be named one of the select few 'Early Leaders' in population health management," said Wellcentive CEO Tom Zajac. "In addition to that ranking, we are honored that KLAS gave Wellcentive a three out of three score for our breadth of portfolio. We take great pride in the fact that we offer a comprehensive solution, giving providers and their organizations an understanding of the quality of care they deliver, as well as the tools and services to proactively improve outcomes. This comprehensive approach has helped our many health systems realize year-over-year improvements as their PHM efforts have matured and become more financially important."

In placing Wellcentive's cloud-based platform in the top group for completeness, KLAS summarizes that "Wellcentive has validated aggregation of clinical and claims data from a variety of disparate sources. Optional predictive risk models supplement rules-based stratification. The system is user-friendly for physicians at the point of care, including clinical decision support guidance. Strong customer service."

Among the feedback KLAS received from Wellcentive customers, one customer noted that Wellcentive "really helps guide the physicians in providing great preventative and chronic care... Because of that, we have been able to see improvements in the delivery of care for that population."
