ATLANTA, April 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Wellcentive, the industry forerunner in end-to-end population health management (PHM) and transformative data analytics for healthcare organizations, was named a Leader in IDC Health Insights' new report, "IDC MarketScape: U.S. Population Health Management 2014 Vendor Assessment."* The report's positioning of Wellcentive marks the third time in nine months the company has earned leadership recognition in independent analyst reports examining vendors in the PHM market space, following KLAS Enterprises and Chilmark Research.
"It's gratifying to have the breadth and quality of our comprehensive population health management solution validated by another top analyst organization," said Tom Zajac, Wellcentive's CEO. "We couldn't be more pleased with our placement in the IDC MarketScape Report; these results reinforce Wellcentive's position as a market-leading solution in one of the most critical areas of focus in today's healthcare industry."
The inaugural KLAS report published in November 2013, "Population Health Management 2013: Scouting the PHM Roster," ranked Wellcentive as an "Early Leader" among PHM solution providers. Chilmark's first-of-its-kind "2013 Clinical Analytics for Population Health Market Trends Report," which described Wellcentive as a "turn-key PHM solution," was published August 2013.
The IDC MarketScape Report utilizes a number of key measurement criteria, including: "Functionality that includes analytics to identify and stratify patients and present performance measurement data to providers as well as workflow to develop interventions at the patient and campaign level and tools to engage patients in their care plans and progress toward goals."
It also validates Wellcentive and Trizetto Corporation's recently announced partnership to offer solutions that enable payers and providers to more effectively collaborate through accountable care initiatives to drive improved clinical and financial outcomes. As noted in the report's Essential Guidance section, "Population health management combines payer and provider domain expertise; make sure your vendor has both capabilities."
"Our Wellcentive technology and services solution works because it extends far beyond just capturing big data," Zajac added. "To be successful, population health management must entail data-driven, evidence-based action—integrated into workflow and combined with analytics tools. Clinicians and payers alike have a more complete, insightful patient record to make knowledge-based care decisions while simultaneously aligning business objectives with quality performance initiatives."
Other Wellcentive strengths highlighted are:
- "Wellcentive appears to have one of the shortest implementation time frames in this market. To have as many clients through a channel partner and be able to scale down the product and its price, Wellcentive has a flexible pricing model."
- "Extensive investments have been made to build a strong services offering that includes implementation and training, consulting to assist clients implement and or refine their patient-centered medical home as well as help design quality programs and, finally, operations services including program monitoring and interface management."
- "In addition, Wellcentive has developed a strong road map for the next 18 to 24 months that includes a unified quality program, services to support transformation to new value-based programs, and a connected community where its clients can share content and processes as well as share experiences."
The IDC MarketScape Report is designed to help healthcare executives define the emerging and often confusing population health management market.

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, will explore HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.

Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and containers together help companies achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, will review the current landscape of...

DevOps is gaining traction in the federal government – and for good reasons. Heightened user expectations are pushing IT organizations to accelerate application development and support more innovation. At the same time, budgetary constraints require that agencies find ways to decrease the cost of developing, maintaining, and running applications. IT now faces a daunting task: do more and react faster than ever before – all with fewer resources.

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction....

Docker is hot. However, as Docker container use spreads into more mature production pipelines, there can be issues about control of Docker images to ensure they are production-ready. Is a promotion-based model appropriate to control and track the flow of Docker images from development to production? In his session at DevOps Summit, Fred Simon, Co-founder and Chief Architect of JFrog, will demonstrate how to implement a promotion model for Docker images using a binary repository, and then show h...

The last decade was about virtual machines, but the next one is about containers. Containers enable a service to run on any host at any time. Traditional tools are starting to show cracks because they were not designed for this level of application portability. Now is the time to look at new ways to deploy and manage applications at scale. In his session at @DevOpsSummit, Brian “Redbeard” Harrington, a principal architect at CoreOS, will examine how CoreOS helps teams run in production. Attende...

There will be 20 billion IoT devices connected to the Internet soon. What if we could control these devices with our voice, mind, or gestures? What if we could teach these devices how to talk to each other? What if these devices could learn how to interact with us (and each other) to make our lives better? What if Jarvis was real? How can I gain these super powers? In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, will show you!

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/...

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text...

The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
