WAYNE, PA--(Marketwired - December 17, 2015) - Medecision, the leader in population health management and connected care solutions for risk-bearing entities like provider- and payer-sponsored ACOs, hospitals, IDNs and health plans, has been named one of the most promising big data solution providers by CIO Review. Selected by a panel of industry-leading CEOs, CIOs, VCs and analysts as one of the top 100 big data solutions out of thousands of technology providers, the report showcases the increasing importance of big data across all industries and the solutions -- like Medecision's Ariel™ platform -- created by technology companies are creating to help organizations improve outcomes and lower cost.

The comprehensive report features the most successful providers of big data solutions within their respective industries -- including healthcare, technology development and the financial sector -- aiming to help organizations select the right vendor for their specific big data needs. This focus will only continue to grow, with recent reports showing big data spending hitting $48.6 billion in 2019. From a healthcare perspective, big data is front and center within the industry, giving providers a complete and actionable picture of a patient's health. This insight not only improves individual patient outcomes, but also helps healthcare organizations assess and effectively manage the clinical and financial risk associated with increasing accountability for population health outcomes.

"Medecision is using big data management technologies with data-driven rules and workflow to deliver deep insights into population clinical and financial risk, guide personalized patient engagement, deliver tailored care management programs, and prevent adverse events," said Deborah M. Gage, president and chief executive officer at Medecision. "We have moved way beyond the claims-based statistical models designed more than three decades ago. Big data management technologies power our expanding portfolio of real-time self-learning computational models, real-time mastering of claims, consumption of new clinical data sources and mastery of growing data volumes from telehealth and remote monitoring devices."

Medecision's Aerial solution enables healthcare organizations to exchange, aggregate and normalize data from multiple distributed care teams, giving them the insight to improve care coordination and workflows. With this data, the solution, which is scalable and integrates easily with existing technologies, helps organizations to:

  • Better manage high-risk and chronic care patient populations;
  • Identify and fill gaps in care;
  • Promote higher levels of patient engagement in their care; and
  • Optimize the effectiveness of care plans and reduce cost.

Gage continued, "We now have access to near real time clinical data, self-reported health risks, and rising volumes of relevant socio-demographic data that are important inputs to our proprietary next generation models."
