BURLINGTON, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/pghtech50?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#pghtech50lt;/agt;–Population health management leader Arcadia.io announced their coverage
in three major reports from highly-respected third-party analyst KLAS
Research
, Population Health Management 2018 Part 1 and Part 2 and
Value Based Care Managed Services 2018. Arcadia scored highest
among all full-service value-based care managed services vendors3
and was the strongest fully-rated population health management vendor
for financial outcome success.4


KLAS conducted extensive customer research to identify those population
health management vendors that most contribute to patient and financial
outcome success, noting that “not all PHM vendors have proven able to
consistently contribute to customers’ goals.”5 However, KLAS
reported that “when it comes to achieving their PHM financial goals,
Arcadia customers are consistently more successful than many other
customer bases.”6

“Arcadia has always believed that three things are key to driving
success in value based care,” said Arcadia chief executive officer Sean
Carroll. “First, healthcare organizations need a strong understanding of
their data assets. Second, they need to get data and insights to people
when and where they are needed – even breaking into the exam room to
push critical information to the physician at the point of care. And
third, they need a strong organizational backbone to support critical
administrative activities.”

“We think our ability to partner with healthcare organizations taking on
risk is unique within the market,” continued Carroll, “and we’re excited
to have had KLAS evaluate our strengths of our software and value based
services in comparative benchmarking, strategic guidance, and delivering
financial outcome success.”

“Arcadia’s unique functionality and recent development have led to
growth,” reported KLAS, “and their customer base is vocal in expressing
the value that Arcadia brings to the table.”7

Insights”

In Value Based Care Managed Services, 2018 KLAS reported that,
“Arcadia has continued to improve in performance and leads full-service
firms. Several respondents call the firm a true partner and praise their
data-aggregation and -integration expertise and tools.”9
Additionally, KLAS found that “among all measured firms, Arcadia shows
the most consistency across their customer base. Clients appreciate the
firm’s strong data analytics and their track record of delivering on
promises.”10

Arcadia Goes Beyond Partnering to Deliver Crucial Strategic Guidance

KLAS found that, “provider organizations have realized that to be
successful with value-based care, they need their vendor to go beyond
being a great partner to providing additional guidance and expertise in
four key areas: strategy, product optimization, ongoing
benchmarking/performance assessment, and VBR contract assessment.”11
Arcadia scored the highest among fully-rated vendors for its ability to
provide strategic guidance to healthcare organizations using its
platform Arcadia Analytics.

KLAS spoke with one healthcare CEO who said, “Arcadia has been a part of
our strategic plan discussions, and they have guided us. Sometimes,
organizations go about building strategic plans, and then they forget
about the data. From that perspective, Arcadia has helped us find what
we are looking for as we have set objectives. We have come out of those
discussions with a clear understanding of what the system can do. In
that respect, Arcadia has been really helpful.12

Patient Outcomes: Breaking into the Exam Room

Strong population-level analytics are critical to developing an
effective value based care strategy. A key part of executing that
strategy means an organization needs to influence providers working with
individual patients – by providing trusted, actionable insights at the
point of care.

KLAS says that, “providing physicians with highly accurate PHM data is
essential to ensuring that they have high confidence in the PHM tool,
leverage it fully, and use the data to positively impact patient
outcomes. To this end, Arcadia provides strong guidance to help
customers make sure the tools produce reliable data.”13

Arcadia’s proprietary process and technology for clinical data
integration ensures high quality data through the use of machine
learning, built on the largest clinical training dictionary leveraging a
decade of experience, and data from 1000s of disparate EHRs and 50M
patient records. This ensures that physicians trust and use data from
the Arcadia Analytics enterprise clinical data asset. To reduce provider
abrasion, in addition to the user-centered design of its core web
portal, Arcadia Analytics offers a contextual, interface-free, EHR-aware
application that presents a provider with population health insights
when the patient’s record is opened in the EHR without the provider ever
having to change applications or deal with additional logins.

“When people walk into the clinics, they are often seeking acute care,
not preventive care. We can pull up a holistic view of the patients and.
. . really pinpoint what needs to get done. We have had some instances
in which a patient said everything was fine, and the doctor, looking in
Arcadia Analytics, noticed that the patient had a cardiac procedure done
recently and didn’t have any follow-up tests,” one financial executive
told KLAS. “Without Arcadia Analytics, that information would never be
known.”14
