On-Demand, Real-Time Patient Insights and Analytics to Drive High-Value Impact for Telemedicine Visits
BOWIE, Md, (Sept. 12, 2016) — Inovalon (NASDAQ: INOV), a leading technology company providing advanced, cloud-based analytics and data-driven intervention platforms to the healthcare industry, today announced a multi-year agreement with MDLIVE, a leading telehealth platform provider, to provide on-demand, real-time patient insights and analytics. The new capability will enable MDLIVE and its clients (health systems, ACOs, health plans and employers) to identify and close gaps in care as part of telehealth patient consultations, as well as facilitate quality score and risk adjustment accuracy improvement across a wide variety of health plan, health system and employer populations.
As part of the engagement, organizations utilizing the MDLIVE platform or telehealth services will be able to have each patient encounter informed by Inovalon’s advanced patient insights and analytics. Leveraging Inovalon’s unparalleled datasets, connectivity, and analytics capabilities, both inbound and outbound telehealth encounters will be dramatically enhanced by clinical and risk analyses computed and provided in real-time.
The Inovalon on-demand, real-time analytics platform is able to provide detailed analyses regarding HEDIS, ACO, Medicare Advantage, State-Specific, and other clinical quality measures, as well as provide a panoptical view of prior admissions, outpatient encounters, laboratory, and imaging information, thus positively impacting health plans and other outcomes-based arrangements.
With this relationship, MDLIVE will enable the clinician to gain high-value, patient-specific insights often unavailable in telemedicine, allowing them to have greater understanding of the patient and allowing for a more personal, focused, and efficient clinical encounter. Patients benefit from a more meaningful and effective telemedicine experience.
“The health plan, employer, or health system benefits from superior patient satisfaction, the achievement of quality outcomes-specific score improvements, risk score accuracy, utilization management, and other value-based benefits,” said Dr. Sanjay Patil, general manager of health systems at MDLIVE. Dr. Patil added, “With the benefit of Inovalon’s analytics, we deliver greater value and impact for our patients and the clients that we serve than is possible with virtual urgent care alone. This allows our clients to implement both reactive and proactive gap closure.”
“As more employers, health plans, and other organizations find themselves under pressures from value-based and shared-risk arrangements, it’s clear that telehealth will play an increasingly important role in the transformation of healthcare,” said Keith Dunleavy, MD, chief executive officer and chairman of the board of Inovalon. “We are pleased to be working with such an innovative leader in this burgeoning market supporting the promise of telehealth.”
