Palo Alto, CA (March 21, 2017) – Healthcare organizations need up-to-date and actionable information to support expanding population health efforts. They need to identify patients at highest risk of disease and unnecessary utilization, but many lack the systems and expertise to effectively install and optimize risk stratification tools.

HBI Solutions offers some of the most advanced predictive models on the market, giving organizations the power to predict onset of disease and future utilization, all in real-time. Now coupled with J2 Interactive’s deep experience in deploying customized health IT solutions, HBI can ensure their customers take full advantage of the risk scores and other business intelligence data their software provides.

“First of all,” said HBI CEO Eric Widen, “actionable risk scores require good data quality. Second, in order to impact population health, risk scores must be integrated into provider workflows and the care management process.” He explained that by partnering with J2 Interactive, the two can offer wrap-around services like ETL, customization and workflow integration support to optimize use of HBI’s powerful predictive models.

J2 will ensure that the HBI Spotlight Data Solution is fed high-quality, timely data and will validate that it’s properly integrated into a customer’s interoperability platform and applications. J2’s clinical analysts will also work with customers to integrate HBI’s risk scores with other clinical data to put interactive dashboards, alerts, and other actionable visualizations in the hands of users.

“Partnering with HBI will enable us to help our customers understand and serve their patients better than ever before,” says J2 co-founder and CEO Lou LaRocca. “By leveraging the HBI Spotlight Data Solution, healthcare organizations can now tap into real-time analytics to identify their highest risk patients and provide care that leads to better long-term outcomes.”

The full list of joint services includes:

  • Data access, data clean up and ETL processes
  • Installation, configuration, testing, and validation of interoperability software
  • Installation, configuration and training on the HBI Spotlight Data Solution
  • Integration of predictive model output into other workflows
  • Creation of Smart Programs and event notifications
  • Development of custom care management and workflow tools
  • Development of reports and dashboards to display the output of HBI’s predictive models, utilization analysis, and quality reporting
