Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) June 30, 2014
Explorys, the leader in big data-driven healthcare transformation, today announced that Integrated Health Collaborative (IHC), a subsidiary of Aultman Health Foundation and an Ohio-based, physician-led, clinically integrated network with a goal of providing higher quality care to patients, has selected Explorys’ Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) Application Suite, a set of SaaS-based applications that enable rapid population health management, measurement, and engagement to support its clinically integrated network and value-based care initiatives.
“As the healthcare industry transitions from a fee-for-service to a value-based model of care, we founded this clinically integrated network to support and engage physicians, and ensure superior quality across the continuum of care,” said Dr. Allison Oprandi, CEO, Integrated Health Collaborative. IHC’s goals are to improve quality and efficiency in patient care, promote partnership between hospitals and physicians, build an integrated system of care delivery, and enable success under value-based reimbursement. “We are working with hospitals and practices across the region who are using different health information systems. The only way we can identify and understand our opportunities for improvement and then measure our efforts to improve quality and efficiency is to be able to aggregate and curate each one of our participating organization’s data. We found that Explorys, with a truly flexible, robust solution, was the best company to meet our immediate needs and allow us to accomplish our goals.”
Explorys’ EPM solution suite will support IHC’s mission of engaging physicians to deliver high-quality, patient-centered, efficient care. The Explorys platform will enable the clinically integrated network to aggregate and analyze its patient data to improve care quality and outcomes, while reducing healthcare costs.
“One of Explorys’ primary objectives is to provide all types of healthcare organizations with the ability to leverage big data to garner the insights that will ultimately improve care quality, efficiency, and costs,” said Stephen McHale, CEO, Explorys. “As payment models shift in healthcare, we are seeing more organizations like IHC form, and as such, are seeing an increased demand for our solutions. We are honored that IHC selected us as their big data partner, and look forward to giving this group the insight that they need to improve population health and reduce the per capita cost of care across Ohio.”
