Baptist Health Selects Explorys Big Data Analytics Platform For Its Value-Based Care Initiatives

Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) August 25, 2014

Explorys, the leader in big data-driven healthcare transformation, today announced that Baptist Health has selected Explorys and its Value-Based Care (VBC) Program Framework to improve care quality, and reduce unnecessary cost across their enterprise and clinically integrated networks. Baptist Health, based in Jacksonville, Florida, is a network of five hospitals affiliated with 45 primary care offices located throughout Northeast Florida and Southeast Georgia.

“By leveraging the Explorys platform and applications, Baptist Health will gain deeper insights into our patient population that will support our ability to transform the process of care,” said Roland Garcia, senior vice president and chief information officer, Baptist Health. “In a fragmented and immature market, we evaluated multiple vendors and ultimately selected Explorys as our first generation health management tool. They demonstrated flexibility, a cloud-based approach and the ability to benchmark against other clients’ data.”

Explorys enables large healthcare systems and clinically integrated networks in the United States to navigate and manage the unprecedented change brought about by healthcare reform and new value-based models of care. Utilizing a combination of clinical, claims, and operational data, Baptist Health will utilize the Explorys Platform to stratify risk, predict costs, pinpoint patients that need intervention, enable care coordination, and close gaps in care. Baptist Health will leverage the Explorys national data set to benchmark its performance on key population health and utilization measures.

Baptist Health also will apply the Explorys VBC Program Framework as it rolls out its value-based care initiatives along with its affiliates. Running atop the Explorys Platform, the Explorys VBC Program Framework provides a tightly integrated set of risk and prediction models, as well as pre-built reports, measures, registries, and dashboards for assessing populations and contracts, managing populations, and measuring performance across their networks.

“As demand grows for healthcare systems to drive better outcomes while eliminating unnecessary costs, the ability to master the mitigation risk has become more crucial than ever,” stated Charlie Lougheed, president and chief strategy officer, Explorys. “We are thrilled that Baptist Health chose us to further their mission to improve care and make it more affordable for the communities and patients they serve.”

Inspired by physicians and informatics leaders, Explorys combines the most powerful healthcare-computing platform in the world with turnkey solutions for clinical integration, at-risk population management, cost of care measurement, and pay-for-performance solutions. Explorys’ cloud-based platform is serving 22 integrated healthcare systems, 340 hospitals, and over 300,000 providers to identify patterns in diseases, improve treatments, and outcomes.
