GLENDALE, Calif., Feb. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Apollo Medical Holdings, Inc. ("ApolloMed" or "the Company") (OTC: AMEH), an integrated population health management company, and Helynx, Inc., a technology company that has developed a next-generation platform for machine learning and predictive analytics, today announced that they will present the results of a study based on ApolloMed Accountable Care Organization ("ACO") patients at the 13th Annual MIT Sloan Health & BioInnovations Conference on Friday, February 26 at the MIT Media Lab in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
The theme of this year's conference is "Strategic Analytics: Changing the Future of Healthcare" and will highlight the latest trends in Big Data uses within healthcare. Collecting and analyzing enormous amounts of healthcare data enables clinical providers to improve patient care and medical management processes across the whole healthcare value chain. The study, "Predicting Admissions and Emergency Department Visits from Time-Lagged ACO-Specific Data" was performed by evaluating three years of de-identified claims data on nearly 30,000 ApolloMed ACO Medicare patients using Helynx's analytics engine. Helynx implemented a large scale multivariate computational model based on all available data. Even constrained by 60- to 90-day old claims data, the multivariate predictor outperformed traditional methods in early identification of at-risk patients.
The study was carried out by Chess Stetson, Ph.D, Boris Revechkis, Ph.D and Kris Chaisanguanthum, Ph.D from Helynx and Diane Pham, M.D. from ApolloMed.
"We are very pleased with our collaboration with Helynx," stated Warren Hosseinion, MD, Chief Executive Officer of Apollo Medical Holdings. "More accurately predicting patient admissions and emergency department visits can trigger actions to improve health outcomes and reduce expenditures. ApolloMed will continue to be at the forefront of delivering next generation value-based care."
"Our goal is to help ApolloMed prevent avoidable adverse outcomes for their patients," stated Chess Stetson, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of Helynx, Inc. "ApolloMed clinical staff could use this newly discovered predictive information to identify at-risk patients even sooner."
