Ramsey, NJ and Foster City, CA – August 13, 2018 –Konica Minolta Inc.’s (Konica Minolta) Business Innovation Center (BIC), technology innovator for the healthcare industry, announces today the company’s breakthrough entry into the healthcare analytics market: a Value-Based Care Platform designed in partnerships with Lightbeam Health Solutions and Medal. The solution enables healthcare organizations to optimize clinical quality, reduce costs, and increase patient satisfaction while enabling the leap to forward-thinking value-based care models.

The end-to-end solution provides key, relevant information across the care continuum to give providers a holistic view of their patients. The value of patient data enables a better understanding of population needs, aligning behavior with present and future incentive models.  Its SaaS-based platform enables providers to rapidly and easily deploy.

The platform provides advanced analytics by leveraging both structured and unstructured data from Electronic Healthcare Record (EHR) systems, Health Information Exchanges (HIEs), claims, and other such repositories. Konica Minolta aggregates this patchwork of data sources to provide actionable insights at the point of care.

The Value-Based Care Platform was developed by Konica Minolta’s Business Innovation Center and validated by their Healthcare Advisory Council, an elite group of healthcare leaders comprising Chief Medical Officers, Chief Information Officers, and executives from leading healthcare organizations.

“With aggressive transformation goals, we are continually expanding the value Konica Minolta provides to the healthcare market through our Business Innovation Center,” said Ekta Sahasi, Vice President of Konica Minolta’s Business Innovation Center.  “Our ability to process both structured and unstructured data on a single healthcare analytics platform will immensely benefit providers, payors, as well as patients.”  

The Business Innovation Center also forged Konica Minolta’s entry into remote healthcare with the 2016 launch of its Telehealth Platform.

Thousands of healthcare organizations rely on Konica Minolta for the quality, security, efficiency, and innovation that propel them into the future of healthcare. It has helped organizations across the country more securely and efficiently capture, share, and harness patient information for better, cheaper quality of care.

“Our End-to-End Value-Based Care Platform is the culmination of considerable research,” said Kevin Kern, Senior Vice President of Business Intelligence Services and Product Planning at Konica Minolta. “Our sole objectives were improving the quality and cost of care delivery. We collaborated with our strategic partners to create a unique, predictive intelligence solution that will prove a profound entry for us into the healthcare analytics market.”
