SEATTLE and IRVING, Texas, Feb. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — MPIRICA® Health Inc., a leading healthcare quality transparency company and Advanced Plan for Health (APH), a provider of data analytics technology that helps organizations improve health benefits programs, today announced a partnership which will support APH’s mission to provide excellence in healthcare analytics guidance for self-insured employers, health insurance brokers and health plan providers.

By using MPIRICA’s trusted measurement of surgery quality, APH will benefit from an outcomes-based methodology derived from decades of applied medical quality data analysis experience. The partnership will help APH’s customers to make informed population health management decisions that reduce costs and optimize a group’s overall health and health plan.

«We’ve had great success in optimizing self-insured employers’ health plans with our proprietary technology, and this partnership will only strengthen our toolset,» said Neil Godbey, CEO, Advanced Plan for Health. «MPIRICA has a unique and innovative approach to objective quality transparency, and their solid, risk-adjusted methodology makes them really stand out in the market.»

MPIRICA’s unique 3-digit scoring system (similar to a credit score) reports the surgery performance of hospitals and surgeons for over 850 inpatient and outpatient procedures. Godbey plans to integrate MPIRICA Quality Scores into APH’s Poindexter, a data analytics risk engine custom-built for population health management.

«We are pleased to have been chosen by APH to help reduce both risks and costs associated with expensive, low-quality surgery providers,» said Shakil Haroon, Founder and CEO of MPIRICA. «APH customers already have a great technology platform working on their behalf in Poindexter, and the use of our data from the MPIRICA Quality Scores will make their offering even stronger.»
