SCOTTSDALE, Arizona, August 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Intralign Health, a leading provider of OR Optimization solutions, today announced the appointment of Sriram Iyer to the position of CEO to advance its strategy to improve hospital profitability through value-based solutions. Mr. Iyer was previously President and CEO of RainTree Oncology, a leading oncology alliance, and CEO of Engage Health, a patient engagement company focused on driving compliance.

Prior to this, Mr. Iyer was an executive at The Advisory Board Company, a best practice research, analytics and consulting firm serving over 2,500 hospitals, where he built population management and revenue cycle solutions to improve hospital profitability. At RainTree Oncology, Mr. Iyer led the company's transition from a GPO to a provider network that optimized the specialty pharmacy, so independent practices can thrive under a value-based reimbursement model.

Intralign Founder, Rick Ferreira said, "Having accomplished our goal of capturing tangible savings for hospitals by optimizing intra-operative processes, Intralign is now focused on creating value-based solutions that enable hospitals to thrive under payment reform. We are excited to have Sriram lead Intralign's expansion, particularly given his expertise in healthcare analytics and value-based care." Mr. Ferreira remains an Intralign Board Member and will focus on future growth opportunities and on managing strategic relationships for the company.

Mr. Iyer said, "With the rollout of payment reform, hospitals need solutions that drive profitability across the full episode of care. In Orthopedics, for example, hospitals participating in CJR are now responsible for managing utilization for up to 90 days after the patient has left the hospital. Intralign has captured sustainable savings for hospitals by optimizing surgical performance and is well positioned to manage both cost and quality across the full episode."

Intralign's Episode of Care Modeling and Bundle Performance Program applies CMS's rules and data to map out a strategy for each hospital on how best to optimize clinical and operational processes for CJR. This roadmap includes quality and complications scoring, as well as qualitative on-site care path analysis. All interested hospitals should contact Intralign's Executive Vice President, Arthur Goodrich, at agoodrich@intralign.com or by calling 415 515 7776.
