CAMBRIDGE, Mass. and WHITE BEAR LAKE, Minn., Oct. 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pathway Health (www.pathwayhealth.com), a leading post-acute consulting services, interim management and education services organization, and PointRight (www.pointright.com), the industry-standard predictive analytics leader, announce they have entered into a strategic partnership agreement to provide analytics solutions to providers across the post-acute continuum.
As part of this agreement, Pathway Health will integrate PointRight's analytics solutions into their consultancy practice, assisting providers with an analytics-driven approach to effectively measure quality clinical outcomes, manage costs and reduce risk. The two organizations will roll-out specific offerings that target these operational challenges in the weeks ahead, and will continue to evolve their joint offering within the next year and beyond.
"We are pleased to arm our expert consultants with PointRight's analytics solutions," commented Deborah L. Schuna, founder and Chief Executive Officer for Pathway Health. "Enabling providers to make better-informed business decisions is key as they position for value-based purchasing and the overall impact of healthcare reform."
"In today's healthcare landscape, it's crucial that providers not only be measurably successful within their own organizations, but to also position themselves with external stakeholders like payers and other key referral sources," said Steven Littlehale, Executive Vice President and Chief Clinical Officer of PointRight. "By combining PointRight's predictive analytics solutions with Pathway's expert consultants, it's a win-win for post-acute providers to be able to clearly show how they differ from their competition and to improve quality and mitigate risk throughout their enterprise."
