Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 26, 2012
Wellcentive, an industry leader in population health management and analytics solutions, announces the introduction of Risk Manager, a predictive risk modeling system within its Advance™ solution. Risk Manager delivers a key additional element of a responsible, end-to-end population health management solution by providing a quantitative picture of potential health risks and cost drivers within a selected population of patients. Users can identify and stratify patients within selected risk profiles, enabling providers to focus their care management resources on the highest risk patients. This results in a greater ability to effect change in both the quality of care and the costs associated with that care.
With Risk Manager, providers and their organization can now look forward – as well as retrospectively – and employ predictive risk modeling that analyzes patient data to project clinical and financial outcomes. With Wellcentive Advance Risk Manager, providers can use this information to take proactive action to address issues associated with high-risk patients to better manage their care.
To deliver these capabilities, Wellcentive has seamlessly incorporated The Johns Hopkins ACG® System into the Wellcentive Advance platform. The ACG System measures the morbidity burden of patient populations based on disease patterns, age and gender, taking a "person-focused" approach that allows it to capture the multidimensional nature of an individual's health over time.
According to Frank Murphy, Wellcentive President, CEO & Chairman, The Johns Hopkins ACG System is an ideal fit for Wellcentive. “Johns Hopkins ACG System is the only predictive modeling system designed specifically for population health management, so it was critical that we align ourselves with the best platform on the market. With 20 years of historical models and data, the ACG System meets our very high standards.”
The incorporation of the Johns Hopkins ACG platform enables Wellcentive to offer the only risk management system designed specifically for population health management. Wellcentive Advance uses individual patient profiles and independent episodes of care to evaluate risk across an entire spectrum of patients. Wellcentive’s seamless data aggregation and normalization ensures that providers base their insights on a comprehensive and quality-focused data set.
Added Murphy, “Wellcentive Advance is the ideal tool for providers’ population health and care management programs. Now with Risk Manager, they have more powerful insights into future clinical and financial outcomes as well. Risk Manager will help organizations with their clinical and financial performance and provide information that will be of great value during contract negotiations with payers.”
