Healthcare platform, Orion Health has been awarded the 2016 European Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Leadership, recognising the company’s approach to population health management (PHM) for delivering precision medicine.
Global research and consulting organisation Frost & Sullivan conducted a recent analysis of the PHM solutions market and praised Orion Health for the “unmatched reliability and quality” of its technology, compared to other electronic health record (EHR) vendors.
Orion Health was praised for a host of factors including, data acquisition and aggregation, adoption of PHM and consulting services. The functions were noted as being vital for healthcare providers to facilitate shifts in roles and responsibilities. The company was also recognised for meeting customers’ demand for quality, functionality and price-performance.
The award recognises companies for developing products with innovative features and functionality, which are gaining rapid acceptance in the market.
Frost & Sullivan industry analyst Srikanth Venkataraman said: “For healthcare organisations that choose to work with EHR vendors, Orion Health offers components that are usually missing from their portfolios,” “It is a visionary vendor that recognises that complete data standardisation is an unattainable goal and that its solutions need to work with different data types from a wide variety of sources.”
Orion Health offer a number of solutions to population health management. Frost & Sullivan recognised Orion Health’s Amadeus analytics platform, which stratifies risk in a population and drives rapid decision-making.
Colin Henderson, VP EMEA Strategy and Solutions at Orion Health, said: “The Frost & Sullivan award reflects many years of investment and dedication towards our vision to make precision medicine a reality.
“Across Europe we are seeing demand for population health management, care coordination and outcome focused solutions that are being put in place to address healthcare priorities such as the management of long term conditions, care of the frail and elderly, and health and social care integration.
“Modern healthcare requires modern technology that can identify and prioritise patients’ needs at a population and individual level, to avoid unnecessary hospital admissions – and we believe we are at the forefront of this technology movement with our Amadeus platform, care coordination and patient engagement solutions that are intuitive to use and are based on open standards.”
