Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) October 14, 2013
Explorys, the leader in big data-driven healthcare transformation, today announced that Adventist Health System (AHS), one of the largest not-for-profit Protestant healthcare providers in the nation, has selected the Explorys Platform and its suite of cloud-based analytic and population health management solutions to support its growing clinical integration initiatives. Under the terms of the multi-year agreement, the health system with 44 campuses in 10 states initially intends to implement the Explorys solutions in a couple of their Florida-based markets and associated clinically integrated networks, and then expand to other states.
"Adventist Health System is focused on clinical integration with affiliate practices in the community as we jointly care for our patients. We selected Explorys because of its flexible, cloud-based approach and ability to integrate data from a wide range of diverse constituencies," said Brent G. Snyder, Esq., CIO, Adventist Health System. "AHS expects Explorys to bring together our data across the continuum of care to allow us to continually improve quality, identify gaps in care, and enhance our measurement and reporting capabilities to support new strategic initiatives."
It is key to AHS that its clinically integrated network has full connectivity to its community physicians who often have diverse electronic medical record systems. The Explorys solution will empower these physicians to not only be connected, but also have deep insight into at-risk populations, predictive models, and care opportunities. Adventist Health System plans to leverage this analytic view to support its focus on improving outcomes while reducing overall healthcare costs.
"Leading healthcare systems are taking bold action to be more competitive and offer greater value to patients and employers. Mastering risk, care coordination, cost efficiency, and quality is key to sustained growth," said Stephen McHale, CEO, Explorys. "We are honored to have Adventist Health System select us as their partner for their value-based initiatives. Their leadership in quality, combined with their commitment to bridge the gap between the hospital and community physicians, is critical to care transformation in the markets they serve."
Adventist Health System will be implementing the Explorys Platform and Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) Application Suite, a set of SaaS-based applications that enable rapid population health management, measurement and engagement.
