PISCATAWAY, N.J., June 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- HealthEC, a single-platform population health management company improving outcomes and costs for value-based care providers, announced today that it is a top rated vendor in Chilmark Research's second annual care management report.
The comprehensive 2017 Care Management Market Trends Report assesses more than 25 solutions available today to meet the various needs of provider organizations pursuing care management strategies. The report notes the same four key market trends identified in its inaugural edition remain intact today driving primary care management: an increasing commitment to value-based reimbursement models, a focus on reducing downside risk, scrutiny about the cost and variability in care, and the continued shift from inpatient to outpatient care.
"Chilmark Research's report confirms HealthEC's emergence as one of the leading care management vendors supporting ACOs, CINs, IPAs, IDNs and other organizations servicing large Medicare, Medicaid and commercial populations," said Arthur Kapoor, President and CEO of HealthEC. "The report's high ranking of HealthEC's product capabilities and product innovation reflects our ability to align our solution with the needs of the value-based care market. Organizations choose HealthEC because results matter in the pursuit of insights into utilization, costs and outcomes to ensure their long-term viability."
HealthEC's product capabilities and innovation received the highest letter grade rating of all profiled vendors with consistent performance across all rating criteria, and defined strengths in the support of patient self-management, and communication across caregivers, patients and providers.
"At its core, care management is about delivering the right care in the right setting at the right time," said Matt Guldin, Senior Analyst at Chilmark Research and the report's co-author. "We are impressed with HealthEC's technology and their commitment to evidence-based, personalized care management. The company's work to reduce preventable readmissions, address social determinants of health, provide more personalized care plans and achieve sustained behavior change is producing measurable results across its broad client base."
To compile this report, Chilmark Research combined extensive primary and secondary research techniques to create a composite profile for each vendor. The independent analyst firm screened vendors via secondary research and telephone interviews with end users and consultants that have advised on, deployed or used a vendor's system. The report is available through Chilmark Research.
