Innovation Health to leverage population health analytics for better care at lower costs
Koan Health announced today that they were selected by Innovation Health to provide population health consulting and analytic services that will help deliver higher-quality care at lower costs. Innovation Health, the result of a unique partnership between two industry leaders, Inova and Aetna, a CVS Health Company, serves community members in Northern Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia.
Innovation Health will utilize Koan’s proprietary analytic platform and consulting services, and coordination technology will be supplied by Enli Health Intelligence. These tools and services will enable Innovation Health to blend clinical data from Inova’s electronic medical records with Aetna’s claims data which will gain near real-time insight into clinical needs of their members. These tools will be instrumental in achieving their population health and care coordination objectives in 2019 and beyond.
“Koan Health’s population health and data analytic solutions will play a major role in helping us manage the health of our populations,” said Sunil Budhrani, Chief Executive Officer/Chief Medical Officer at Innovation Health. “Koan’s tools, along with their expertise, will provide the insights we need to not only understand our populations, but to truly achieve the healthcare transformation we envision.”
“Innovation Health is committed to delivering the best care while lowering costs,” said Jeff Hayes, Koan Health co-founder and EVP. “To help achieve this, Innovation Health will leverage Koan’s enterprise-level tool set that provides actionable analytics and Enli’s care management technology for managing interactions with members.” Hayes added, “We are thrilled to add Innovation Health to our growing list of satisfied clients.”
DT Nguyen, chairman and CEO for Koan Health, commented that Koan’s platform is especially well-suited for commercial and government insurance programs. “With heightened cost awareness and the need for better reporting of quality measures, the deep links we create with clinical data and predictive analytics are especially useful in value-based care,” said Nguyen. “Our goal is to create healthier populations and long-term value to consumers.” Nguyen is former president of MedAssets (now nThrive) where he led Best in KLAS claims and contract management systems for five consecutive years.
“Our capability to generate an intelligent coordination solution, delivering meaningful clinical and financial outcomes for provider organization, is critical to success in value-based care,” added Luis Machuca, CEO of Enli. “We are pleased to be an integral part of the solution.”
