Cybercrime is one of the top economic crimes in the world, with cost estimates soon to reach into the trillions. Not only have victim demographics expanded from the large well-known organizations to the small and mid-sized, healthcare providers are now a consistent target. The recent ransomware attacks, and threats of more to come, have raised questions regarding security and available protection mechanisms.

Episode 12: Population Health and Homecare with Elliott Wood of Medalogix

  •   Podcast
  •   7/27/2016
  •   Tripp Matthews, Elliott Wood

Elliott Wood of Medalogix joins the podcast to talk about his recent article/blogpost on the term "Population Health" and what that REALLY means in the Home Care space.  We learn about his journey to Medalogix, and spend lots of time talking through the fascinating and visionary company that is Medalogix.  Elliott is a Nashville native, with a degree in Psychology from Abilene Christian University, then two semesters of graduate work in clinical psychology – then left to join HealthStream because of his love of data/analytics.  Left for Medalogix because of Dan Hogan.  Medalogix is 6 years old.  Founded by Dan Hogan.  Takes data from Home Health providers nightly, looks at patterns and predictive models to help Home Health agencies.  Currently focused on different products to best leverage that data. 

During our conversation, we lament the overuse of industry buzzwords (while using them ourselves, shamefully), but how to use these industry terms correctly when educating our collective audience.  My children make noise in the background.  His definition of how Medalogix defines it is how to keep Home Health Agencies patients, their average daily census, from getting readmitted to the hospital. 

A quick discussion of an early misstep, or failure at Medalogix has turned into a burgeoning success relative to how to actually use the data that they are collecting and analyzing about Home Health agencies.  I like how he talks about providing "action" to their customers rather than simply providing "value."  Elliott gives us some success stories with their products Bridge and Touch. And I love their goal of driving better Clinical Conversations between caregiver and patient. 

We also touch on a sensitive topic about our country's, our society's approach to end-of-life care.

  •   Tim Rowan, Editor, Home Care Tech Report

With this month's CMS announcement that another 121 Accountable Care Organizations have been certified, the total now comes to 477 ACOs in 49 states and the District of Columbia. As the new bundled payment, shared savings, and shared risk programs fall into place over time, these ACOs will be looking to coordinate care with the post-acute care community to keep costs under control and hospital 30-day readmissions down.
