BOWIE, Md., Dec. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Inovalon, Inc., a leading provider of data-driven healthcare solutions, today announced that NeoDeck Holdings, a Puerto Rico based Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Health Information Exchange (HIE) provider, has entered into a multi-year engagement to integrate Inovalon's advanced healthcare data analytics with NeoDeck Holdings' EHR platform, NeoMed EHR 3.0, and HIE platform, Clinical Vault, to improve clinical and quality outcomes, and financial performance in Puerto Rico.
With this agreement, Inovalon will interconnect its advanced quality improvement and risk score accuracy analytics within NeoDeck Holdings' EHR Platform NeoMed and HIE Platform Clinical Vault, improving the speed and workflow efficiency of data exchanges within the medical record environment that exists amongst payers and providers in Puerto Rico. With the addition of this partnership, Inovalon expands its leadership in bringing data and advanced analytics to the point of care, expanding the power of leading EHR and HIE platforms, further empowering payers and providers in the improvement of clinical and quality outcomes and financial performance.
"The integration of health data and analytics across the continuum of care is essential for enabling the delivery of high-quality, patient-centered medicine," said Federico Garcia, President and Chief Executive Officer of NeoDeck Holdings Corp. "Our strategic partnership with Inovalon builds upon our electronic health record and health information exchange platforms by integrating advanced analytics capabilities seamlessly into the clinical workflow providing the essential tools and accurate data to drive quality and care improvements and reduce costs in the system."
"Data-driven platforms have become increasingly vital for all segments of the industry as complex managed-care program environments expand," said Carlos Carrero, President and Chief Executive Officer of Socios Mayores en Salud, Inc. (AHM and Triple-S Salud Medicare Advantage Products). "Our collaboration with Inovalon provides valuable insight and improvement capabilities to deliver more efficient and effective care."
"Access to data and the benefits of analytics are driving significant changes at the point of care," said Keith Dunleavy, M.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of Inovalon. "This partnership with NeoDeck Holdings gives health plans, hospitals, and providers a significant advantage towards achieving improved quality and financial efficiency to the healthcare landscape. We are pleased to be working with NeoDeck Holdings to provide advanced technologies for the entire healthcare community across Puerto Rico."
The combination of thousands of disease, diagnosis, treatment, and care considerations together with the expanding complexity of regulatory oversight, quality measurement requirements, reimbursement models, and healthcare organization structures has resulted in a significant increase in burden within the healthcare landscape. Today, providers and payers alike must maintain extensive resources and subject matter expertise in an effort to comply, let alone excel, in the current environment. Additionally, in order to substantiate performance and regulatory adherence with such programs as NCQA HEDIS® quality performance measurement, the CMS Five-Star Quality Rating program, and other federal and state-based risk score accuracy programs, providers and payers must support extensive medical record review initiatives.
