Population health company acquires technology, significant customer accounts of MAeHC

Micky Tripathi, president and CEO of the nonprofit Massachusetts eHealth Collaborative (MAeHC) and a pioneer in healthcare IT interoperability, has taken a position with population health management solutions vendor Arcadia.

Arcadia also announced that it has acquired certain assets of MAeHC, including technology and significant customer accounts. MAeHC delivers strategic guidance, project management, data warehousing and analytics services, and hands-on implementation support to help providers improve clinical and business performance. MAeHC also plays a significant leadership role in advising and leading various interoperability and standards activities, including HL7 and FHIR.

Tripathi is active in the industry at a local and national level, including membership on the board of directors of HL7, the Sequoia Project, the CommonWell Health Alliance, the CARIN Alliance, and the HL7 FHIR Foundation. He also is the project manager of the Argonaut Project, an industry collaboration to accelerate the adoption of FHIR.

In a press release, Burlington, Mass.-based Arcadia noted that it saw record growth in 2019. "Despite the challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic presents to our healthcare system each day, Arcadia is fortunate to remain in the position that we can continue building our capabilities, and we're incredibly excited to welcome MAeHC to our corporate family," said Sean Carroll, CEO at Arcadia, in a statement. "The acquisition of deep talent from MAeHC will expand our reach and influence commensurate with our position of market leadership."

In the same release, Tripathi stated that "the COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the important role that population health management plays in ensuring healthcare organizations have accurate, up-to-date patient information to guide decision-making. Over the last few weeks, we've seen how absolutely critical it is for all of us in value-based care, interoperability and population health management to pivot at a moment's notice. We are excited about joining our strong teams of experienced industry professionals who are building the future of interoperability and healthcare data exchange."

Healthcare Innovation named Arcadia one of its “Up and Comer” companies in 2018. At that time, Carroll explained that the company extracts data from providers’ systems, pulls it into its cloud-based instance, processes the data and makes it available to customers through a variety of modules: quality, cost, patient management, and other applications that give them different lenses on this massive data set.

“Our real focus is on building that comprehensive, aggregated data asset of all the clinical data from the EHRs and claims systems in a market for a specific customer and analyzing that data against their existing risk-based contracts,” Carroll said in a 2018 interview. “How we deliver value that is tangible is by telling them exactly what to do with their populations to be highly effective in those contracts.”
