Health IT Startup: Medalogix
Founded in 2012 by former home health agency owner Dan Hogan, Medalogix has been recognized by Harvard University, HIMSS and Fierce Healthcare IT as an innovative solution that’s improving America’s Healthcare system. Medalogix currently offers two solutions, Touch and Bridge.
Medalogix offers patient outcome management (POM) solutions that use a combination of predictive analytics, workflows and business intelligence engines to improve quality and reduce costs.
We’re a healthcare tech company that provides analytics and workflows to home health providers so they can improve care and reduce costs.
Medalogix currently offers two predictive analytic workflow solutions to home health providers:
- Touch, which helps ensure a patient’s successful care episode by identifying patients at risk of transferring off census (i.e. hospital readmission), falling or who would benefit from an additional care episode. After identification, Touch then automates a clinical team’s patient touchpoints to encourage the best care and cost outcome.
- Bridge, identifies which patients would benefit from hospice care and then offers a workflow to help clinicians have the right end of life conversation with the right patient at the right time.
Prior to founding Medalogix, Dan Hogan owned and operated a home health agency. As the industry moved toward digital patient records, he realized there was an opportunity to analyze those streamlined data sets to detect health risks the human eye might miss. He researched to find a tool that could do this, and came up empty handed. He decided to take matters into his own hands and incorporated Medalogix in February 2009.
Currently, Medalogix integrates with leading home health and hospice EMR. We market to their users through webinars, industry conferences and referrals through existing satisfied Medalogix users.
