NEW YORK--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--ActiveHealth Management (ActiveHealth®) received the 2013 United States Technology Leadership Award in early intervention and wellness from business consulting firm Frost & Sullivan. ActiveHealth’s ability to deliver and manage disease management and wellness programs on a national level, with the help of the company’s core technology platform, helped it earn the honor.
“The intense focus on the relationship between health care and cost is putting pressure on all stakeholders to find ways to improve health and wellness of large populations to reduce spend”
ActiveHealth’s CareEngine runs clinical analytics and predictive models on claims and other personal health data to help physicians and their patients pinpoint potential opportunities to improve care as well as identify members at risk for health conditions. When it detects a potential gap in care, ActiveHealth alerts patients and physicians. In addition, case managers contact members at risk of health conditions. The company integrates its health and wellness programs into personal care plans to help individuals better manage their health and avoid chronic conditions like diabetes.
“The intense focus on the relationship between health care and cost is putting pressure on all stakeholders to find ways to improve health and wellness of large populations to reduce spend,” said Daniel Ruppar, research director at Frost & Sullivan. “There are a few companies that have been able to capture a smart approach to meet these needs, and ActiveHealth stands out as the demonstrated leader in applying its analytics platform to health and wellness services.”
Richard Noffsinger, CEO and president of ActiveHealth, said, “We understand that employers and health plans are looking for proven solutions that support improved health outcomes and reduced costs. Our CareEngine has been enabling those efforts for more than 15 years. We are proud to have our success and continuous work with CareEngine recognized with the Technology Leadership Award.”
Frost & Sullivan based the award on several evaluation criteria, including development of new technologies; leverage of new technologies; R&D spending as a percentage of total revenue; brand perception; and customer value.
