Healthcare Systems Harness Predictive Intelligence from Explorys to Power Next-Generation Patient Engagement via Emmi Solutions

Cleveland, OH, Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 21, 2014

Explorys, the pioneer in big data-driven healthcare transformation, and Emmi Solutions (Emmi), a leader in outcomes-driven patient engagement, today announced new capabilities that enable healthcare systems to inject predictive intelligence derived from the Explorys Platform into Emmi’s interactive communication solutions. This integration delivers actionable health information to patients via multiple modalities – including computers, mobile phones, and tablets – at key moments across the continuum of care.

Working together at integrated healthcare systems, Explorys and Emmi are enabling cost efficient patient engagement, particularly to address the situations where population management programs require thoughtful deployment of their clinical resources – such as care managers, care coordinators, and providers – in order to stay connected to patients and manage risks such as readmissions or declining health.

The relationship will enable provider organizations to utilize Emmi in a more streamlined way by prioritizing patients that are risk-stratified by the Explorys Platform, based on a rich longitudinal data set that spans the care continuum. Provider organizations will be enabled to provide personalized patient engagement for at-risk patient populations, as well as ongoing feedback loops to gauge performance.

“Explorys and Emmi have been growing quickly and we are finding ourselves being independently deployed in many of the same health systems across the country,” said Charlie Lougheed, President and Chief Strategy Officer of Explorys. “Leveraging the integration capabilities between our solutions not only makes sense to our customers, but also presents a great opportunity to put big data to work as provider organizations broaden their engagement with patients; especially those that are engaged in value-based care and payment initiatives.”

Using their own data plus models and benchmarks derived from a clinically in-depth data set, the Explorys cloud-based big data platform enables healthcare systems to better understand their patient populations, quantify future risk and costs, and manage performance across their diverse employed and independent provider networks. Combined with Emmi’s solutions that are designed to encourage engagement while delivering essential health information, provider organizations can effectively operate value-based care initiatives, such as Accountable Care Organizations (ACO), bundled payments, and direct-to-employer offerings.

“Truly effective patient engagement requires a multi-prong approach in today’s healthcare market,” said Devin Gross, CEO of Emmi Solutions. “Leveraging Explorys’ analytics is an invaluable complement to our engagement solutions, enabling automation of the patient identification process for campaigns. We are able to measure actual interactions, enabling healthcare systems to personalize outreach and messaging for improved clinical outcomes and help increase ROI.”
