Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) December 12, 2013 —Explorys today announced that it has been named an early leader in population health management in the KLAS report, Population Health Management 2013: Scouting the PHM Roster, released in October 2013.
Since 2009, Explorys has built a reputation for providing a scalable, cloud-based, big data analytics platform that delivers results, and this KLAS report highlights Explorys as an early leader in the population health management field based on its portfolio breadth, experience, and ability to deliver.
Started as a Cleveland Clinic innovation spinoff, Explorys is recognized as being an early healthcare-specific business intelligence vendor in population health. Explorys has been the platform of choice for many large integrated delivery networks seeking to unify their data, turn it into actionable information, and put it into the hands of those clinicians, care coordinators, and executives that can enable care transformation. Its cloud-based big data platform combines clinical, operational, and financial data elements from providers and payers to highlight gaps in care, predict outcomes, and mitigate risk to improve patient care and reduce cost.
“Being recognized among a strong field of leaders is exciting,” said Charlie Lougheed, President and Chief Strategy Officer of Explorys. “However, our position is that tomorrow’s healthcare leaders need even more unified data in order to thrive in the new value-based care economy. This will not only require advancements in technology and integration, but also benchmarks, risk models, and well-orchestrated programs that produce considerable return on these investments. Explorys will have a concerted focus in 2014 on expanding our high-return turnkey programs that leverage huge data sets to make better decisions and enable fast-forming clinically integrated networks to deliver better care.”
KLAS developed the Population Health Management 2013: Scouting the PHM Roster report to distinguish providers’ approaches to population health management and identify the vendor solutions that are being used for various strategies. In particular, KLAS focused on four main pillars of population health: data aggregation, risk stratification, care coordination and patient outreach. The report indicates that Explorys is particularly “adept at aggregating data, with its easy-to-use portal for physicians and care coordinators.” With a significant number of large, well-known Integrated Delivery Networks as customers, Explorys is also described as being a “customer-centric company and providing a quick path to value.”
