Piedmont Community Health Plan Selects Inovalon's Advanced Analytics and Data-Driven Platforms

BOWIE, Md., June 9, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Inovalon (Nasdaq:INOV), a leading technology company providing advanced cloud-based analytics and data-driven intervention platforms to the healthcare industry, has announced a new multi-year agreement with Piedmont Community Health Plan, a provider-based managed healthcare organization, to support strong quality and financial performance for their Medicare Advantage population.

Inovalon has implemented its iPORT® data integration toolset to rapidly integrate Piedmont Community Health Plan's multiple datasets into Inovalon's healthcare data lake environment. Upon arrival within the environment, multiple analytics platforms are thereafter being applied to achieve both retrospective and prospective insight across initiatives focused on quality improvement, risk score accuracy, utilization efficiency, and both data reporting and compliance. Leveraging Inovalon's data-driven intervention platform providing point-of-care decision support, directly connected EHR systems, and other patient, provider and facility connectivity capabilities, the insights garnered from these analytics are transformed into actions and impact resulting in improvements across these initiatives for Piedmont's providers and their members.

"Inovalon's industry-leading technologies offer us an impressive array of capabilities which we could not find in any other single integrated platform," said David Brady, president and chief executive officer of Piedmont Community Health Plan. "As a provider-based organization, implementing a holistic, data-driven approach to the patient, Inovalon's solution not only gains us valuable insight and improvement capabilities, but also does so in a highly efficient way."

"The physician and hospital-based design of Piedmont is clearly a winning equation," said Robert Wychulis, Inovalon's president. "As provider-centric models continue to show strong success for patients under the marketplace's growing focus of value and quality being the drivers of healthcare, we are very pleased to be partnered with impressive organizations such as Piedmont Community Health Plan."
