Populytics, Inc. once again made the list of the Greater Lehigh Valley’s Fastest Growing Companies. This is the fourth 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.
“The need for meaningful data that can accurately identify trends, efficiencies, and patients at high risk for disease has surged among hospitals, providers, and insurers, so it follows that analytics companies like ours are accelerating,” says Gregory G. Kile, President and CEO. “The nation’s health care system is in the process of major transformation and we are proud to be among those affecting positive change – toward enhancing the patient experience, improving population health, identifying cost drivers, and improving the work life of clinicians and health care staff.”
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 well-being 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 Lehigh Valley Physician Hospital Organization (LVPHO), doing business as 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 2020 will be honored in a virtual awards celebration on Wednesday, October 14, 2020, from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. (Register here.)
