Justin L. Neece, President & COOPopulation health is increasingly gaining popularity amidst implementation of Affordable Care Act and the need to curtail rising healthcare costs. For over 17 years, i2i Population Health has been pioneering the data-driven strategies for the providers operating in population health arena to improve their clinical as well as financial outcomes. The company aims at changing healthcare by helping Federally Qualified Healthcare Centers (FQHC) and provider organizations that are dedicated toward offering their services to underserved patient populations. Serving over 2,500 healthcare delivery sites across 35 states, i2i provides Best in KLAS population health management solutions, aiding healthcare organizations to manage more than 20 million lives seamlessly.
In the healthcare industry, across both the acute care and the ambulatory care, providers face challenges primarily regarding payment models, which are crucial from a revenue perspective as it drives their viability. Providers struggle to deliver maximum care along with an eye to generate profitable business amidst numerous regulatory constraints, such as MACRA, MIPS, value-based care models and so on. On the other hand, leveraging the right technology with an aim to provide quality service in an attempt to impact the community, along with broadening their patient base, is another challenge. i2i operates specifically on these two categories. The company helps healthcare providers not only offer a higher quality of care and still make a revenue, but also expand their outreach with the adoption of the right technologies, such as EMR/EHRS, telehealth, predictive analytics, patient engagement, and clinical intelligence.
In addition, i2i provides two major solutions. Its flagship product, i2iTracks, is a fully interoperable day-to-day PHM platform that connects EMRs and PMs to extract and aggregate clinical and financial data, identify at-risk populations, assign personalized actionable care pathways, and engage patients in evidence-based interventions across specific care teams. The company’s big-data platform, PopIQ, is a comparative intelligence engine that compares data from i2iTracks implemented at different care organizations to deliver overall community outcome in treating a specific disease such as diabetes. “Such an ability helps care providers to zero-in on the patients across different facilities who do not fit into a common recovery path and cater to them with customized treatments.

This also acts as a common knowledge base for the physicians who can turn to it while dealing with unique and complicated cases,” highlights Justin L. Neece, President and COO, i2i Population Health.
Benefiting numerous health organizations, i2i has helped their clients in their holistic transformation. In one such instance, California-based La Maestra Community Health Centers (LMCHC), dedicated to health and well-being of the underserved population, and an active member of the Million Hearts initiative, noticed the need for a reliable technology partner outside their chosen EMR. The organization required aid in identifying patients at-risk for cardiovascular disease in order to maximize resources and create a more economical care delivery model. Post implementation of i2iTracks, LMCHC instantly uncovered 453 patients that needed hypertension screening. Moreover, the client observed a decrease in missed opportunities from 67 percent to 59 percent within a few months.
Spearheading the industry with the mission “serving others for healthy communities,” i2i Population Health promises to offer more products in the near future. The company is planning new product releases with novel solutions that are extensions of i2iTracks and PopIQ, which allow providers to manage multiple value-based care programs effortlessly. “Additionally, we are looking forward to offering software tools that facilitate seamless payer-provider collaboration to build an efficient population health ecosystem,” concludes Neece.
