Expands Biomedix Population Health Management Solution
Today IRIS and Biomedix announced the signing of a strategic partnership agreement that expands the Biomedix Xchange Population Health Management Solution to include the testing, diagnosis and care planning for diabetic retinopathy examinations.
“For value-based care organizations, the early identification of diabetic retinopathy through prospective screening of diabetic patient populations achieves two goals; optimizing HEDIS measures to boost Star ratings, and most importantly, enabling the optimized delivery of care in a cost-effective manner,” said John Romans, CEO of Biomedix.
“For all of our partnerships, we focus on best-in-class diagnostic solutions that deliver objective and accurate results in a fast, easy-to-use and portable package,” stated Rich Delperdang, Chief Growth Officer at Biomedix. “IRIS meets each of these criteria and expands the functionality of our growing platform by enabling diabetic retinopathy screening.”
IRIS test results will integrate seamlessly with the Biomedix Xchange population health platform, enabling the aggregation of diagnostic results for data analytics that facilitate innovative care delivery for polychronic populations. The IRIS integration expands the Xchange functionality to cover five chronic conditions in addition to behavioral health issues, and Social Determinants of Health (SDoH). In addition, Xchange supports longitudinal reporting for the ongoing surveillance of chronic conditions to drive optimized care planning.
“IRIS is excited to join Biomedix in supporting our mission to end preventable blindness,” said Steve Martin, CEO of IRIS. “This one partner approach will help healthcare organizations achieve their quality metrics in a more streamlined manner.”
