"Cerner is committed to expanding the breadth of our population health management offerings to give our clients the solutions and content they need to more effectively manage health and care," said Dr. Bharat Sutariya, vice president and CMO, population health, Cerner. "Keeping healthy people well and helping those in need to receive timely care in the appropriate venue can improve the quality of care while reducing overall costs."

xG's care management clinical content automates the assessment of a variety of hereditary, socioeconomic, physical, behavioral and environmental risk factors, as well as warning signs and symptoms associated with specific conditions.

Cerner clients will be able to use xG's clinical content within HealtheCare, Cerner's knowledge-driven community care management solution that provides algorithms with the ability to identify, stratify and prioritize individuals for assignment to aligned care managers. The solution enables providers to conduct comprehensive and relevant assessments, which establishes condition-specific goals and interventions to enable optimal health outcomes.

The HealtheCare and xG clinical content collaboration will provide evidence-based patient assessments for dozens of conditions, be integrated into the workflow and automate the generation of patient-specific action plans for personalized care.

"We're enthusiastic about our collaboration with Cerner, and the content we're providing is truly comprehensive. Our assessments address dozens of acute and chronic adult, pediatric, adolescent, maternal and geriatric conditions, from both a physical and behavioral health perspective," said Earl P. Steinberg, MD, CEO, xG Health Solutions. "Over the next two years, we'll be developing even more content covering both common and rare, complicated conditions."

xG's analytics content will also be integrated into Cerner's HealtheAnalytics solution. The alignment expands Cerner's population health management turn-key catalog to provide organizations with analytic discoveries that can help reduce costs, and improve quality and patient outcomes.

"By aligning with xG, a market leader in population health analytics, we will greatly enhance our capabilities around delivering actionable insights to help organizations effectively manage at-risk populations," said Lisa McDermott, vice president, population health, Cerner.

Cerner's population health management platform and solutions will be featured in Cerner Booth 2032 at HIMSS16, Feb. 29 - March 4, at Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas.
