BOWIE, Md., June 24, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Inovalon (Nasdaq:INOV), a leading technology company providing advanced, cloud-based data analytics and data-driven intervention platforms to the healthcare industry, today announced that it has expanded its current relationship with FamilyCare Health, a leader in Oregon healthcare, in a multi-year agreement to provide solutions that improve patient disease insight, risk score accuracy, financial performance and regulatory data compliance for their Medicare Advantage population.
In late 2014, FamilyCare Health began utilizing Inovalon's analytics and data-driven intervention platforms to improve insight, reporting and performance in a series of quality-focused initiatives within their Medicare Advantage and managed Medicaid membership populations. These initiatives focused on achieving both the accurate assessment and reporting of clinical quality scores as well as their improvement. Under the new set of agreements, FamilyCare will broaden this existing partnership with Inovalon, leveraging their established data integration and intervention platform utilization. The new engagement will introduce additional predictive and comparative analytics to focus on identifying gaps pertaining to member disease and co-morbidity insight. The data detailing these identified gaps will inform the Inovalon cloud-based intervention platform already in use with FamilyCare, supporting the resolution of the identified gaps, and resulting in improved quality of care, risk score accuracy, utilization efficiency and regulatory data accuracy.
"FamilyCare's mission is to create healthy individuals through innovative systems," said Jeff Heatherington, Chief Executive Officer of FamilyCare Health. "Our partnership with Inovalon continues our commitment to improve quality, cost efficiency and care initiatives by leveraging critical information about our members."
"Predictive analytics and data-driven intervention platforms provide FamilyCare with essential granular insights needed to improve care at the individual member-level," said John Spitz, Jr. Inovalon's senior vice president of products and services. "These toolsets give FamilyCare not only added visibility, but also added performance improvements. We are proud to be part of FamilyCare's strong focus on quality and clear dedication to its members."
