GSI Health's population health platform, GSIHealthCoordinator, will become part of Medecision's Aerial solution

Dallas-based Medecision, a provider of population health management technology and services for managed care organizations, has acquired Philadelphia-based GSI Health, a provider of workflow, engagement and compliance software and services.

Terms of the deal, which closed Oct. 28, were not disclosed. Medecision said that the GSI Health platform is used by health systems to coordinate and optimize value-based care for more than 1 million beneficiaries, often operating under Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) programs. Its clients include the largest public hospital system in the country and the largest Medicaid health plan in Oregon.

GSI Health has developed workflow automation and system integration with community care providers to streamline care coordination and value-based payments for population health improvements, including reduced avoidable hospital admissions and better care provider performance as well as payment alignment.

GSI Health Founder, President and CEO, LeRoy (Lee) E. Jones, is joining Medecision as senior vice president, care delivery system transformation. The GSI Health population health platform, GSIHealthCoordinator, will become part of Medecision's Aerial solution. (Medecision says it has 50 million lives under Aerial management.)

 “Aerial is designed to serve all individuals, no matter how complex their conditions or how challenging their needs, by deploying up-to-the-minute information and guidance to care teams and family members so the best health and wellness outcomes can be achieved,” said Deborah Gage, president and CEO of Medecision, in a statement about the acquisition. "GSI Health has pioneered valuable applications and built exceptional expertise for those who bear risk for the most complex and challenged members of our country, and we are proud to welcome them, their clients and partners to the Medecision family.”
