Geneia Launches Theon, a Powerful New Resource to Help ACOs Meet Quality and Cost Goals

HARRISBURG, Pa. and CONCORD, N.H., July 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Geneia today announced the launch of Theon, an industry-leading platform to help physicians, hospitals, and integrated health systems in accountable care organizations (ACOs) and other shared risk arrangements improve patient care, quality, and cost.  Comprised of four cost-effective, care-based modules, Theon delivers actionable analytics that enable all members of a care team to identify and care for patients and populations.

Theon’s suite of products includes four modules that provide timely, actionable information needed to make informed health care decisions

"In the four years since the passage of the Affordable Care Act, more than 625 accountable care organizations have been created, and many more are expected.  One of the best ways that ACOs can help their patient care teams meet quality and cost goals is to give them user-friendly tools to identify who needs help, exactly when they need it, and what they need to improve their health," said Mark Caron, CEO of Geneia. "That's why Geneia created Theon."

"Theon was born out of Geneia's exhaustive yet unsuccessful market search for an off-the-shelf, all-payer data and analytics platform to identify and care for patients and populations in ACOs, patient-centered medical homes, and pay-for-performance arrangements.  We were unable to find the robust platform we needed to strategically and proactively manage clinical and financial indicators, so we leveraged our clinical, analytic, and technical expertise to build our own," said Caron. 

Theon's suite of products includes four modules that provide timely, actionable information needed to make informed health care decisions.

Theon's innovative and scalable platform:

  • Effectively and uniquely integrates clinical, claims, psychographic, and physiologic data from an unlimited number of sources into one platform
  • Presents a holistic patient view through an intuitive dashboard that supports physician decision-making and care team action
  • Enables all care team members to see the information and action steps appropriate to their role
  • Integrates care opportunities within the provider and care team work flow
  • Improves financial, quality, and health outcomes
  • Includes a highly effective clinical data model and predictive algorithms that far-exceed the industry norms for predictive accuracy

Theon is already working with health plans to effectively and efficiently manage their risk arrangements, and is now available to physicians and hospitals.  One client, a regional health plan with accountable care and pay-for-performance contracts, used Theon to help its physician and hospital partners see at-a-glance how they are performing in their health plan contracts, to characterize their patients based on such metrics as risk scores, health cost, and open care opportunities, and to identify patients who need care coordination following a hospital admission and other additional services.  "The Theon platform has helped our physician and hospital partners advance from simply getting data to using data to make informed decisions that positively impact patient health and the patient-provider relationship."

As John Nosta, Founder of NOSTALAB, Forbes contributor, and digital health strategist observed, "Theon is unique in its ability to integrate all of the existing data - the EMR, clinical notes, claims, benefit design, even a patient's FitBit - and then translate and present the information in a way that empowers the physician and the patient's care team.  Simply put, Theon offers a cost-effective, user-friendly, easily-configurable and customizable platform to improve both the quality and cost of care. And in today's complicated and demanding health care environment, Theon offers a sophisticated yet practical solution that redefines population health management and establishes its architects as leaders in the field."

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Igor Drobiazko, co-founder of elastic.io, drew upon his own experience with operating a Docker container-based infrastructure on a large scale and present a lightweight solution for resource isolation using microservices. He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
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, reviewed the current landscape of Dev...
In his General Session at DevOps Summit, Asaf Yigal, Co-Founder & VP of Product at Logz.io, will explore the value of Kibana 4 for log analysis and will give a real live, hands-on tutorial on how to set up Kibana 4 and get the most out of Apache log files. He will examine three use cases: IT operations, business intelligence, and security and compliance. This is a hands-on session that will require participants to bring their own laptops, and we will provide the rest.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

Updating DevOps to the latest production data slows down your development cycle. Probably it is due to slow, inefficient conventional storage and associated copy data management practices. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in Product and Solution at Tintri, will talk about DevOps and cloud-focused storage to update hundreds of child VMs (different flavors) with updates from a master VM in minutes, saving hours or even days in each development cycle.
