This IDC study presents a vendor assessment of the population health management market through the IDC MarketScape model. As healthcare organizations transform to value-based reimbursement and care, the need for tools and methodologies to improve clinical and financial outcomes becomes critical. At this nascent stage of population health management, the approaches have been based on historical methods, and with maturity, the need to be more precise in our analysis, more personalized in care plan development, and more proactive in patient engagement will continue to grow.
"Since the publication of the IDC MarketScape: U.S. Population Health Management 2014 Vendor Assessment (IDC Health Insights #HI247880, April 2014), there have been significant improvements to the technologies and expertise of the vendors. Some vendors have exited the market, while others have for the first time qualified for inclusion. Market maturity will continue to grow at a rapid pace," Says Cynthia Burghard, research director, Accountable Care IT Strategies.
