BOWIE, Md., March 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Inovalon (Nasdaq:INOV), a leading technology company providing advanced cloud-based analytics and data-driven intervention platforms to the healthcare industry, announced that it has entered into a new multi-year agreement with Gateway HealthSM, a nationally ranked managed care organization headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to provide a data-driven analytics solution platform to improve clinical and quality outcomes, financial performance, and regulatory compliance for its Medicare Advantage and managed Medicaid membership populations in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Kentucky, and North Carolina.

Inovalon's cloud-based data-driven intervention platforms enable a deep understanding of the member's health status, including physician documentation of disease and co-morbidity diagnoses, while identifying and closing gaps in quality, care and data integrity. Moreover, Inovalon's advanced analytics enable reporting and forecasting for the efficient identification, determination, and substantiation of disease and comorbidity data. Additionally, Inovalon will deliver business intelligence reporting that offers granular insight into state-relative comparative data to inform business decisions. These solutions include seamlessly integrated electronic health record (EHR) interoperability capabilities that address current challenges facing the healthcare industry.

Patricia Darnley, president and chief executive officer at Gateway Health, said, "We are pleased to work with Inovalon, utilizing their advanced analytics and data-driven technologies to deepen our understanding of those we serve and furthering our mission in providing quality, affordable healthcare in a proactive and holistic manner."

Gateway first collaborated with Inovalon in September 2014 as part of the Dual Eligible Data Collection Initiative, a research project to better understand the factors underlying performance of dual eligible members served by Medicare Advantage plans, enumerated in an earlier study by Inovalon and subsequently presented to U.S. Congress in October of 2014.

"We are extremely impressed with Gateway's steadfast commitment to meet the needs of members across diverse populations," said Keith Dunleavy, M.D., Inovalon's chief executive officer and chairman of the board. "We are proud to be working with Gateway and look forward to supporting their programs improving insight, care and performance across their Medicare Advantage and managed Medicaid populations."
