SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Equation, a leader in analytics-based healthcare solutions and consultancy, announced today it has entered into a teaming agreement with CentraForce Health, a web-enabled population health intelligence platform provider. The agreement enables Equation to leverage CentraForce Health's population health intelligence data to strengthen and expand its healthcare analytics product offerings.

"Equation's DataRiver™ platform is a gold standard in healthcare business analytics. We are very pleased to be a part of their important and ground breaking efforts to bring population centric intelligence and health care analytics into one, solution driven ecosystem," said Jon Pelzer, Co-Founder & Chief Product Officer, CentraForce Health.

Teaming up with CentraForce Health fosters Equation's mission to advance our analytics-based products to continually drive positive outcomes across the healthcare continuum. Equation's extensive healthcare knowledge and network partnered with CentraForce Health's deep market data insights will provide healthcare organizations with a deeper understanding into the driving factors of population health management, that can't be unearthed within traditional healthcare data alone.

CentraForce Health delivers a unique, geographically spatial view of populations, highly relevant to the specific population health challenges of today. The datasets incorporate respondent-level population health intelligence including more than 100,000 measures surveyed across millions of locally sampled respondents, reaching every local market throughout the United States. The datasets provide a fully compliant, comprehensive contextual framework that is geography specific, including quantification of nearly any population by disease type, payer type, or other known attributes.

As a result of the agreement, Equation's DataRiver™ analytics products now utilize both traditional healthcare data and population health data intelligence to define and profile all types of key populations. The additional insight gained from the datasets has not only added depth to Equation's products, but has also buttressed the expansion of its analytical services. The expanded services include Community Health Needs Assessments, ACO demographic research, and patient profiling.

This partnership provides healthcare organizations a holistic view into their community's populations. It paints a complete picture of the community by providing access to and an understanding of the many variables that play a role in a community's overall health and wellbeing, such as behavioral/attitudinal, demographic, health conditions, health and healthcare provider information. The deep insights gained through analysis of the integrated data have the capability to stimulate improved healthcare strategy and improved patient outcomes.

"In today's value-driven healthcare environment, visibility into both traditional healthcare and population data is imperative to clearly understand performance," said Howard Salmon, Equation Principal. "By integrating CentraForce datasets into Equation's DataRiver™ platform, health systems and hospitals now have an end-to-end view from which they can develop a targeted, data-driven action plan that will invariably improve the quality, effectiveness, and efficiency of their care."
