PALO ALTO, CA–(Marketwired – Apr 11, 2016) –CloudMedx, a big data health analytics company, announced today a new version of its analytics platform that provides real-time visual insights and predictive analytics around population clinical risk and outcomes based on machine learning and natural language processing. The new capabilities are ideal for healthcare organizations that are looking to deliver higher quality care and increased revenue through unmatched insights into patient risk and improved treatment.

The CloudMedx analytics platform can process both structured and unstructured data from healthcare workflows including medical labs, pharmacies and hospitals to capture all relevant clinical and financial information at the point of care. This information is then shared with all necessary healthcare participants across the continuum. Using predictive risk analyses, CloudMedx helps physicians identify people who are at risk for costly, debilitating illnesses in time for intervention and one-on-one support that can help them reverse their risk or minimize their potential for serious complications. CloudMedx helps address a number of challenges that medical care organizations face including avoidable readmissions, capturing bonus payments, value-based payment programs and predictive population health management.

New to CloudMedx’s platform is patient clinical risk scoring that provides enhanced risk stratification and adjustment. Using this score the system can predict patient length of stay and anticipate readmissions, as well as reduce gaps in care and improve care coordination. This requires the proper identification of patient risk and countering it using advanced analytical tools. The CloudMedx APIs integrate with existing healthcare IT workflows and use natural language processing and machine learning on clinical notes to produce a multi-dimensional assessment of patient risk. It delivers real and measurable value to healthcare organizations as provider quality and performance are now tied directly to the reimbursements, bonus payments, and incentives provided by Medicare and commercial health plans.

CloudMedx is working with a number of healthcare providers including Southeast Michigan Accountable Care (SEMAC), a leading accountable care organization (ACO). With 320 physicians and health care professionals, SEMAC selected CloudMedx to significantly reduce readmissions and capture shared savings for its patient beneficiaries. SEMAC’s goal is to generate additional savings from its Medicare Shared Savings Program for patients with diabetes, congestive heart failure (CHF) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
