MedeFinance and Health Integrated Partner to Give Health Plans Competitive Advantage
Date:2/12/2009

TAMPA, Fla. and EMERYVILLE, Calif., Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Health Integrated, the leading Targeted Population Health Management company, and MedeFinance, the leading Healthcare Performance Analytics company, are partnering to jointly offer health plan customers services that combine the power of targeted population management with advanced business intelligence. Mede's analytics enable health plans to become more rapidly and accurately informed about areas of particular concern related to the cost and quality of care. In combination with Synergy Targeted Population Management(TM), Health Integrated can rapidly design focused programs that zero in on these high-cost opportunities. The companies are providing both state-of-the-art, problem-identifying analytics and proven health management solutions to drive down costs while improving member lives.

Mede's analytics join data from a multitude of sources in order to conduct root cause analysis, benchmark providers and gain a comprehensive understanding surrounding costs and quality of services. Health Integrated's Synergy program can be readily customized to target a health plan's highest opportunities quickly. Focusing on the health plan members that are chronically ill and struggling with psychosocial barriers, such as depression or lack of family support, results in significant savings to health plans. By addressing the critical interplay between medical and psychosocial health, Synergy lowers avoidable utilization and associated costs while improving quality of life. Together, unlike any other solution in the marketplace, this joint offering delivers a comprehensive approach to identifying and strategically targeting a health plan's most challenging issues.

"This partnership gives health plans a 'heat map' that shows where the high costs reside and then provides a rapidly-deployable set of services to go after them," says Mede's CEO, Mike Gallagher. "We look forward to working with Health Integrated to improve the competitiveness and performance of our mutual customers."

"We are excited about our agreement with Mede to jointly offer health plan customers the most powerful analytics and targeted solutions available," says Health Integrated CEO Shan Padda. "Our customers recognize the value of business intelligence and the value of a proven services provider to help them zero in on unique opportunities to improve the health status and quality of life of their members."
