IDC MarketScape Recognizes AerialTM platform’s real-time analytics, care management capabilities to power population health programs

WAYNE, PA – Nov. 14, 2016 Medecision, the leader in population health management and connected care solutions for risk-bearing entities, has been named as a Major Player in the population health management technology space in the IDC MarketScape: U.S. Population Health Management 2016 Vendor Assessment (doc #US41689516, September 2016). This is the company’s second year receiving this recognition from the IDC MarketScape, recognizing Medecision’s continued growth and support for the provider market to develop and execute results-driven population health management programs.

IDC defines population health management as “functionality to identify populations at risk or predicted to be at future risk, as well as provider performance measurement, the ability to create and monitor care plans, and the ability to communicate with communities of patients, as well as individual patients.” The IDC MarketScape: U.S. Population Health Management 2016 Vendor Assessment provides a comprehensive review of population health vendors, assessing companies against the following criteria identified as essential components of population health management technology.

The IDC MarketScape recognized Aerial™, Medecision’s platform and applications for population health management, for helping some of the largest and most innovative provider organizations realize population health management success.

“With as many as 75 percent of providers participating in population health efforts in 2016, they must have technology to support their unique, complex, and most costly patient populations,” said Deborah M. Gage, president and CEO, Medecision. “The significance of the IDC MarketScape’s recognition is two-fold for our company: it validates the development efforts we’ve pursued over the last few years for the Aerial platform, as well as showcases the success of this technology within our growing client base to help providers better manage clinical and financial risk while optimizing patient outcomes.”

Earlier this month, Medecision announced the company has been named in Gartner’s “Market Guide for Healthcare Provider Population Health Management Platforms” as one of the top-ranked population health management platforms for providers because of its technology that supports all 10 identified core areas of population health management programs.
