Clinigence, a next-generation clinical business intelligence technology provider, today announced a strategic partnership with Halfpenny Technologies, an interoperability technology framework and cloud-based platform enabling the exchange of clinical data. Through this alliance, physician practices and emerging organizations such as an Accountable Care Organization (ACO) will be able to more effectively gather the necessary clinical data from across the care continuum to provide improved coordination of care.
Through this partnership, organizations can implement both Clinigence’s and Halfpenny Technologies’ solutions to work in parallel to compile the necessary analytics with claims and clinical data so providers in any care setting can more effectively and proactively address and close patient care gaps. Halfpenny Technologies allows providers and partners to access and exchange lab data to better manage care and gain additional insight into the health of the patient population. Combined with Clinigence’s data analytics and efficient aggregation capabilities, providers will be able to further enhance patient care while aligning with new value-based payment and coordinated care delivery models.
“Insight is critical as providers look to take advantage of the many clinical and financial opportunities afforded to them in this new era of healthcare,” said Kobi Margolin, CEO of Clinigence. “We are thrilled about our partnership with Halfpenny Technologies as their forward-thinking and committed approach to managed care and analytic reporting will truly benefit our mutual clients by providing real-time, concrete data that can be used to improve patient care and meet emerging reporting demands.”
The Clinigence solution is built around several key capabilities, including clinical data analytics, semantic data aggregation and normalization, data mining, predictive modeling and business intelligence. Leveraging cloud-based cross-organization collaboration, the solution fuels a continuous cycle of improvement in staff performance and process effectiveness while accelerating the creation of best practices.
“The ability to access the most accurate, complete patient data is more important than ever,” said Tim Kowalski, president and CEO of Halfpenny Technologies. “Our intelligent clinical data exchange which solves data interoperability challenges along with our collaboration with Clinigence’s advanced technology platform will expand our capabilities to not only help compile clinical data for providers and physician-led ACOs, but further support the transition from volume- to value-based healthcare delivery resulting in better patient outcomes.”
