Gartner Population Health Management Framework

Arcadia was recently recognized in Gartner’s Market Guide for Healthcare Provider Population Health Management Solutions: 2018 Update. In the report, we feel Gartner shares key findings and recommendations for healthcare organizations seeking a population health management platform to enable the transition to value based care. Arcadia is pleased to make the Market Guide available for complimentary download.

We believe the Market Guide includes an analysis of the market’s current state and predictions on its evolution, the Gartner Population Health Management Framework, and a review of the key functions that comprise a PHM solution.   Vendors are converging around a set of core capabilities and we feel that Arcadia Analytics meets all the criteria for a comprehensive solution, from risk stratification to provider performance monitoring to value-based compliance measures – capabilities a healthcare system needs.

Gartner continues to recommend that even so, the recommendation from previous Market Guides to conduct a deliberate assessment of the capabilities offered by your EHR or megasuite vendor in comparison with other vendors in the market remains solid. Gartner counsels:

  • “Align vendor selection with your PHM objectives by crafting an RFP that relies on specific use cases describing the value the solution needs to deliver. Do not expect to differentiate vendors based on feature and functionality.”
  • “Be prepared to interrogate vendors about their approach to data integration and scalability by creating a data integration and curation vision for the enterprise. Enterprise architecture practices will be increasingly taxed as PHM program goals and requirements grow.”
