Welcome to the Clinigence Family

Beyond Providing Transformational Clinical Analytics

One of the primary challenges facing healthcare providers today is determining how to adapt to the new era of value-based care. Clinicians are not trained in data sciences or analytics. They are razor focused on the individual patient and the problem at hand. And yet, value-based healthcare is predicated on managing outcomes for populations… and that’s precisely where we come in.

Based in Atlanta, Georgia – and serving clients from each and every US state – Clinigence is the company behind one of the Nation’s largest and most diverse clinical data integration and analytics platforms – the Clinigence Value Improvement Platform (VIP). Clinigence was launched in 2010 by a team of health IT innovators with a shared vision and passion for the power of data and technology to transform healthcare.

The Clinigence Difference

As Clinigence’s core clinical analytics platform, the Clinigence Value Improvement Platform (VIP) is more than a rich set of tools… it is designed to make value-based healthcare transformation as “minimally invasive” as possible to care providers by adapting to existing clinical workflows and translating data automatically into the right action, at the right time and place. What’s more, the Clinigence VIP does not require tech-savvy or data expert users in order to yield impressive outcomes; the platform is used by many physician-led ACOs and small medical practices to drive success in value-based care.

Because interoperability is so critical to healthcare value improvement, the Clinigence Value Improvement Platform (VIP) has been designed to integrate and aggregate data from all relevant sources, including any EHR system and claims source, and deliver actionable information to any point-of-care or workflow application.
