Waltham, Mass. (PRWEB) December 08, 2011
MedVentive was selected as one of 10 vendor participants in the Mid-West BluePrint Health IT Innovation Exchange Summit on Nov. 29. MedVentive was chosen from a field of nearly 40 technology companies by the Summit’s Advisory Board members and hospital participants, including St. Vincent Health (IN), Alegent Health (NE), Hennepin County Medical Center (MN), Visiting Nurse Service of NY (NY) and TriHealth (OH).
The summit matches healthcare providers with some of the country’s most innovative technology companies in a format that has been described as “speed dating for IT.” This unique process has been backed by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and is designed to unite early stage innovators and nurture new technological development.
“We were delighted to be selected as one of the top 10 innovative companies by the participating hospitals and health systems. This pioneering event gave us a terrific opportunity to meet face-to face with providers and show them how MedVentive’s proven tools for population and risk management can help providers successfully become Accountable Care Organizations,” said MedVentive President and CEO Nancy Ham, who represented the company at the summit. “We were able to forge new relationships with a number of providers that saw how our tools can support their population and risk management initiatives.”
The Mid-West BluePrint Health IT Innovation Exchange Summit matched healthcare providers and healthcare technology companies in a speed date format with the goal of fostering and accelerating healthcare innovation. During a preliminary round of 15-minute meetings, the hospital/healthcare provider participants performed an initial evaluation of each innovator’s products and services. Each participant then went through a matching process to set up more in-depth meetings with two innovator vendors of their choice to outline possible next steps towards implementing a business relationship.
With 15 years of experience developing tools and processes to understand and improve provider performance and patient outcomes, MedVentive brought an unrivaled depth of expertise to the Summit. MedVentive is uniquely qualified to support an organization’s transition from a fee-for-service payment environment to risk-based contracting, and provide the clinical integration/population management infrastructure necessary to be successful under the ACO model.
While healthcare was evolving the concept of an accountable care organization, MedVentive was busy operating as one. MedVentive was founded as the Provider Service Network (PSN) in 1997 by the CareGroup Healthcare System, an integrated, at-risk network of 4,500 physicians and eight hospitals that cared for more than 450,000 at-risk patients. The network included the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a teaching facility of Harvard Medical School.
Our origins as an ACO give MedVentive a deep understanding of provider organizations and the healthcare environment. Having been an at-risk provider network, MedVentive is uniquely qualified to support an organization’s transition from a fee-for-service payment environment to risk-based contracting, and provide the clinical integration/population management infrastructure necessary to be successful under this new model.
