Adjudica and Amitech Solutions Create "HealthSight" A New Healthcare Social Networking Product Using group financial transparency and multiple psychological hooks to drive member engagement and targeted outcomes
ST. LOUIS, Aug. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Adjudica, LLC, and Amitech Solutions, Inc., announced the formation of a joint venture, Adjudica Healthcare Solutions, to bring Adjudica's proprietary HealthSight engagement and transparency portal to market. Described as a supercharged cross between Facebook and Quicken, the HealthSight platform provides critical financial and engagement tools that help employers and plan sponsors control healthcare spending and improve the health of their members and employees.
"We've had a great response from the healthcare community," noted Kathy Wiljanen, Adjudica's Chief Executive Officer. "Brokers, Carriers, TPAs, and employers all have recognized our platform as an innovative and important approach to member engagement. Partnering with Amitech, with their decade plus of experience, great team, and deep healthcare data and analytics background is the last part of the puzzle – we will now be able to speed deployment of the portal and continue its development in response to clients' needs and input."
HealthSight provides healthcare spending and utilization information at the individual and group level and connects this information through social engagement tools to establish group utilization and spending goals. This helps employees understand how their actions impact not only their health, but also their personal costs of healthcare and even group costs. Instilling this sense of group responsibility changes how employees think about their healthcare, promoting greater accountability for healthcare spending decisions and lifestyle choices that lead to better health and greater control of healthcare utilization and spending, and lowering the costs of healthcare.
"We are excited to enter into a joint venture with Adjudica," said Amit Bhagat, Amitech's president. "Their innovative presentation of group and individual healthcare data in the context of social networking is the next step towards creating more informed, engaged, healthcare consumers. Our expertise in extracting and transforming healthcare data is a natural fit with their portal. With our excellent and long-standing relationships in the healthcare industry, we will be able to bring this innovative, important tool to Carriers, TPAs, Exchanges and Co-ops."
Based in St. Louis MO, Adjudica was founded in 2008 by a team of experienced technology entrepreneurs to develop an innovative new approach to healthcare cost containment, applying the principals of transparency and engagement to the management of group health plans.
