WAYNE, Pa. -- MEDecision, Inc., a leading provider of collaborative health care management solutions, will utilize the spotlight of the AHIP (America's Health Insurance Plans) Institute 2009 to demonstrate its commitment to leading the health information technology industry in technical innovation that supports President Obama's mandate for health care reform. AHIP Institute 2009 will be held June 3-5 at the San Diego Convention Center and will focus on "real solutions for affordable, accessible and quality health care for all Americans."
"This is an incredibly promising time for health care and IT in particular," said Scott A. Storrer, president and COO at MEDecision. "In this spotlight, events such as the AHIP Institute have taken on a new significance. This is the chance for our industry to demonstrate it is prepared for the challenges and opportunities of the health care reform mandate. We can use this as a forum to signal to the rest of the country that positive change is coming and that we're ready to do our part."
A Presidential Sponsor of the AHIP Institute, MEDecision will be demonstrating its significant strides in product development, leadership talent, partnerships and infrastructure to deliver the meaningful electronic health records mandated by the President for all Americans by 2014.
At its booth (#607) in the AHIP exhibit hall, MEDecision will showcase Alineo 2.0, the newest version of its Alineo collaborative health care management platform. Alineo allows health plans to optimize automation and efficiency in the delivery of care management programs through a more member-centric, whole-person approach to care management. This supports business growth by enabling health plans to strengthen business processes and control medical and administrative costs. To schedule a demonstration of Alineo 2.0, please register here.
AHIP Institute will also be the venue for a case study presentation, "Providing Actionable Information to Strengthen Care Management," focusing on improving efficiencies and lowering administrative costs through the use of auto-approval technology. The case study will be co-presented by Andrew Schuyler, M.D., chief medical officer and EVP of product marketing and medical services at MEDecision, and Alice Petrulis, M.D., chief medical officer of The Keystone Peer Review Organization, Inc. (KePRO), on Thursday, June 4th.
In anticipation of AHIP Institute 2009, MEDecision will conduct a free Webinar, "Reducing Administrative Costs through Health Information Exchange Automation," on Wednesday, May 27 at 12:30 p.m. ET. Presenters will discuss the benefits of automating transactions between health care payers and providers, and how MEDecision's Nexalign iEXCHANGE can enable health plans to automate up to 80 percent of provider service requests.
