With the healthcare space seeking to furnish patients with educative information and empower them to make better healthcare decisions, new companies are continuously popping up, making it difficult to separate the best from the competition.
When researching these changes, I recently came across Neil Smiley, who created two patient engagement companies, Phytel who was acquired by IBM and his current company, Loopback Analytics.
Loopback Analytics is the leading provider of hosted technology to enable hospitals and post-acute care providers to improve care transitions for patients discharged from the hospital. Loopback provides cloud-based integration across clinical platforms, data analytics to identify at-risk patients, hosted multimodal communications to stay connected with discharged patients and dashboard reporting to measure the clinical and economic effectiveness of care intervention strategies.
Loopback Analytics provides hospitals with practical solutions for health reform related reimbursement issues such as readmission penalties, gain sharing programs and bundled payments. So I invited Neil Smiley, founder, and CEO of Loopback onto the show to see he can offer any insider secrets to what it takes to succeed in the crowded healthcare market.
