“The Inovalon ONE® Platform will enable infrastructure efficiencies to help us identify members’ clinical gaps while ensuring we are documenting patient diagnoses accurately and completely,” said Jim Woys, executive vice president of health plan services for Molina Healthcare. “Ensuring that our risk and quality operations are operating as efficiently as possible is an important aspect of Molina’s multifaceted margin recovery and sustainability plan, and we are pleased to expand our relationship with Inovalon to realize results quickly in this area.”
“We have been impressed by the degree to which Molina Healthcare is committed to providing its members with the highest level of service and quality care while also focusing on the efficiency and effectiveness of its programs,” said Jason Capitel, chief operating officer of Inovalon. “We are pleased to expand our partnership with this innovative and value-oriented company to provide advanced analytic capabilities of the Inovalon ONE® Platform supporting data-driven, patient-specific, and provider-specific point-of-care solutions and engagement strategies to drive positive outcomes.”
