Plano, TX, July 25, 2023– Health Chain, a leading innovator in healthcare technology, today announced it has been identified as a Sample Vendor in the Gartner Hype Cycle for U.S. Healthcare Payers, 2023. Health Chain was named in the Next-Generation Value-Based Payment category.

According to Gartner, “Gartner Hype Cycles provide a graphic representation of the maturity and adoption of technologies and applications, and how they are potentially relevant to solving real business problems and exploiting new opportunities.”

Health plans and providers face an urgent imperative to scale their abilities to harness an expanding array of data from disparate sources if they are to deliver cost-effective care and improve patient outcomes. The capability to quickly derive insights from clinical, operational, member-sourced and provider data drives decision making and initiatives in all critical aspects of health care operations. Sudheen Kumar, Health Chain CEO said, “We’re honored to be named as a Sample Vendor. Our team believes we that the core foundation of value-based care is based upon Payers, Providers and Patients having access to shared, accurate and complete data – regardless of whether that data is coming from systems that are internal such as the claims processing tools, EDW, or systems that are external sources such as EHRs or HEDIS.”

Gartner Hype Cycle for U.S. Healthcare Payers, 2023, published on 10, July 2023 states: “Traditional value-based payment (VBP) programs have not expanded at the rate many predicted a decade ago. This was due to their cumbersome administration and limited visibility into real-time performance. In contrast, NGVBP (Next-generation value-based payment) employs advanced data and analytics to address these challenges. NGVBP can model complex attribution scenarios, streamline data sharing, promote health equity and report performance in near real time. These capabilities built on NGVBP will improve the total experience of program participation and population health.”
