Medecision Named to the 2017 IDC Health Insights HealthTech Rankings Top 50(August 14, 2017)
WAYNE, Pa., Aug. 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medecision announced it has been ranked #47 on the 2017 IDC Health Insights HealthTech Rankings Top 50. The annual vendor ranking features the leading global information technology (IT) suppliers that derive more than one-third of their revenue from healthcare payer and/or provider institutions.
“We’re on a mission to improve care, cost and patient experience for the populations that need it most, which can only be achieved when payers, providers and patients are aligned with interoperable data and systems that connect care decisions and engage consumers and their care teams,” said Deborah M. Gage, Medecision’s CEO and president. “The continued recognition from IDC Health Insights is a tremendous honor, proving the effectiveness of Medecision’s population health management framework, which helps organizations gain better alignment, make sense of their data, target meaningful opportunities to identify, intervene and engage in risk-bearing arrangements, and monitor quality and performance.”
