Today, Medecision, an integrated health management solutions provider that supports the health and care of more than 50 million consumers nationwide, has acquiredPhiladelphia-based GSI Health, a SaaS provider of workflow, engagement and compliance solutions and related services. The acquisition will expand Medecision’s expertise and solutions for Medicaid beneficiary management, member engagement in community care settings.
Population Health Management Platform
Effective population health management requires tools that enable widespread collaboration to orchestrate care among multiple providers and diverse care settings to achieve a common goal: optimizing how care is delivered to ensure that each patient or member receives the right care at the right time from the right provider. This means identifying complex or higher risk patients and members who can benefit from more intensive care coordination and addressing not only their medical issues but also the behavioral and social determinants that affect patient health.
Founded in 2003, GSI Health pioneered workflow automation and system integration with community care providers to streamline care coordination and value-based payments for population health improvements. These improvements include reduced avoidable hospital admissions and better care provider performance as well as payment alignment.
The GSI Health platform is used by some of the nation’s leading health systems to coordinate and optimize value-based care for more than one million beneficiaries, often operating under Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) programs. Its clients include the largest public hospital system in the country and the largest Medicaid health plan in Oregon.
The deal closed October 28, 2019; financial terms were not disclosed. Fairmount Partners, an investment bank for healthcare and technology businesses, acted as financial advisor to GSI Health.
GSI Health Founder, President and CEO, LeRoy (Lee) E. Jones, is joining Medecision as Senior Vice President, Care Delivery System Transformation. Senior leaders responsible for finance, technology, account management and sales are continuing in their roles as well, strengthening the Medecision organization while ensuring continuity and focus for GSI Health clients. The GSI Health population health platform, GSIHealthCoordinator, will become part of Medecision’s Aerial™ solution.
“With a history of leadership in technology solutions and a dedication to solving the tough problems in healthcare, GSI Health helps its clients succeed at Medicaid waiver programs, reducing data and care silos, keeping beneficiaries in the best community care situations possible and closely aligning incentives to population outcomes,” said LeRoy E. Jones. “We’re very excited to join an organization that boldly advances our focus. With Medecision, our clients gain a trusted partner committed to liberating healthcare and a place in a vibrant community of population health executives who operate best practices in multiple program areas. Perhaps most importantly, they will have full access to the integrated health management solutions and services offered as part of the Aerial experience.”
