"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.
