The Case in Point Platinum Awards Program distinguishes professionals and organizations who demonstrate sustained success across a variety of healthcare models and platforms, recognizing the innovative techniques healthcare organizations are leveraging to decrease care fragmentation, improve the patient experience and lower healthcare costs. Helping to achieve these goals, Aerial InCircle meets the critical need for mobile collaboration and engagement across the care continuum by connecting consumers, providers and other caregivers—translating into higher quality care, healthier consumers and more cost-effective care for risk-bearing healthcare organizations.
“Ultimately, patients hold the power in terms of attitudes and behaviors impacting their health, so it’s incredibly important for the healthcare industry to empower and engage consumers to take an active role in their care,” said Deborah Gage, president and CEO, Medecision. “We are honored to be recognized by the Case in Point Platinum Awards, and are committed to looking for innovative solutions during our Innovation Challenges and other opportunities to help our customers overcome population health management challenges, while working toward healthier consumers, more proactive care and minimized cost.”

- Creation of person-centric “social care circles” granting select and approved parties access to view care summaries, scheduled appointments and more;
- Continuous feedback loops and secure messaging between consumers, providers and caregivers; and,
- Monitoring of care compliance to ensure care plans are followed appropriately with up-to-date health information to improve patient outcomes while decreasing occurrence of high-cost care interventions.
