ClosedLoop and CareJourney Partnership Combines Critical Provider Performance Data with AI and Machine Learning to Better Predict Health Risks and Improve Quality of Care

ClosedLoop and CareJourney have announced a partnership to enhance the way VBC program administrators make decisions with clinical data, improving prediction accuracy and performance gaps.

AUSTIN, Texas and ARLINGTON, Virginia, January 24, 2023 – ClosedLoop and CareJourney today announced a partnership to enhance the way value-based care (VBC) program administrators make decisions with clinical data. The strategic effort will enhance ClosedLoop’s healthcare-specific library of content for artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) algorithms with critical provider performance analytics from CareJourney, including episode-level physician benchmarking and scoring on cost and quality of care. This additional provider performance data will further improve the accuracy and impact of predictive models built with ClosedLoop’s data science platform as well as help program administrators to identify deviations in observed and expected behavior across care teams and patient populations.

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) define VBC programs as programs that “reward healthcare providers with incentive payments for the quality of care they give to people,” as compared with the current fee-for-service healthcare system that rewards the delivery of “more” care. Both ClosedLoop and CareJourney are deeply committed to supporting VBC organizations with data and analytics that provide the critical insight necessary to make decisions that improve patient care and health outcomes.

ClosedLoop’s platform leverages a comprehensive list of healthcare data types, including clinical, claims, pharmacy, and social determinants of health (SDoH) data, to build, deploy, and monitor accurate and explainable data science-based predictive models.

“Having CareJourney’s data available in our AI / ML content library means that individual members’ predicted care trajectories can incorporate the performance of the delivery system in caring for similar populations,” said Andrew Eye, CEO and Co-Founder of ClosedLoop. “This partnership will provide our shared customers not only with more accurate predictions of health risks, but additional insights into interventions that can improve quality of care.”

Payers, providers, health systems and health IT companies rely on CareJourney’s advanced healthcare analytics and insights to guide critical planning and decision-making about market expansion, network development, provider contracting, patient care coordination and provider optimization.

“Healthcare analytics teams are more effective if they link local data managed within their network to publicly accessible datasets and insights at the patient cohort or clinician level, “said Aneesh Chopra, President of CareJourney. “Through our partnership with ClosedLoop, value-based care organizations can more easily pinpoint performance gaps and iterate on targeting strategies to address them.”

Payers, providers, accountable care organizations (ACOs), and other healthcare organizations (HCOs) are working furiously to unlock the full potential of VBC, and data is the key. By incorporating more insightful, relevant, and timely provider data into tools used to identify and predict adverse healthcare events, conditions, and episodes, ClosedLoop and CareJourney are providing clinicians and VBC program administrators with the important information needed to transform the healthcare system.
