Populytics, Inc., a leading population health management and analytics firm, and wholly owned subsidiary of Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN), once again made the list of the Greater Lehigh Valley’s Fastest Growing Companies. This is the fifth year in a row Populytics’ growth was recognized by Lehigh Valley Business and its event sponsors, Baker Tilly and Highmark.

All 45 eastern Pennsylvania companies on the list have been identified as the region’s most dynamic and have significantly impacted the local economy in a positive way. Populytics’ development and continued growth are based on having made major investments in a proprietary population health management technology platform, analytics capabilities, and the professional talent able to drive the innovative solutions necessary to make a difference in health care quality and cost containment.

“Creating sustainability and affordability in health care are two of the biggest challenges facing us in our region and across the country, and our company is on the front lines,” says Gregory G. Kile, Populytics’ President and CEO. “We have made great progress through an advanced infrastructure and proprietary data analytics processes, which are highly integrated with regional clinicians, care coordination teams, health insurers, and hospital administrators. By identifying, stratifying, and intervening in high-risk conditions as well as isolating and eliminating inefficiencies, we can effectively bend the cost curve for patients.”

Populytics’ analytics technology is central to LVHN’s payer collaborations that afford local employers the advantages and efficiencies of aligned care. Employers also benefit from Populytics’ portfolio of occupational health, behavioral health, and employee wellness services that fall under the umbrella of “well-being.” Currently, these include a range of virtual offerings as well as COVID-19 return to work/school services such as COVID-19 evaluations and testing, medical directorship, and policy development.

Additionally, Populytics works closely with Valley Preferred, which is a preferred provider network closely aligned with LVHN. Valley Preferred provides resources and innovative programs to support the success of its participants, physician members, their practices, and patients. “By delivering informed insights via Populytics’ data to our health care providers, LVHN, and our payer partners, we have already been able to make strides toward improving health care quality, while simultaneously impacting costs,” says Kile.

The Fastest Growing Companies of 2021 will be honored in a virtual awards celebration on October 20, 2021, from 1 to 2:30 p.m.
