Epic's population health tool adds resources from Geisinger spinoff xG Health Solutions

Epic made xG Health Solutions' care management content available within its population health management software, Epic Healthy Planet, earlier this year.

Danville, Pa.-based Geisinger Health System launched xG Health Solutions in 2013 to scale its care management processes and support providers and payers in streamlining their clinical and financial performance. Today, the company offers providers and payers solutions related to data analytics and decision support.

Under the partnership with Epic, providers will be able to access xG Health Solutions clinical content — called xGContent, which is based on national practice guidelines and standards of care — from within the Health Planet module. xGContent offers providers suggested care plans to assess patients on 60 common conditions.

Several hospitals have signed agreements to use the xG Intelligent Care Management solution since it became available in Epic Healthy Planet, according to a Feb. 23 statement from xG Health Solutions. Hospitals that have licensed the content include Colorado-based UCHealth, Rockville Centre, N.Y.-based Catholic Health Services of Long Island and Portland, Ore.-based Legacy Health.

"xG has created content that will help ensure patients are receiving appropriate care and case management services," Carl Dvorak, president of Epic, said in a February 2017 statement announcing the initial partnership. "We hope our open platform will continue to encourage xG and others to expand their offerings to the Epic community."
