TEANECK, NJ: Healthcare sector has turned into an ultimate pit stop for individuals to have themselves revitalized to accomplish their endeavors persistently. This has become much simpler through the digital clinical solutions and software provided by the Cognizant healthcare platform. Orion Health has recently signed an agreement with Cognizant Group to develop the new platform—TranZform—that assists consumers, make righteous decisions about the quality and cost of the care that is worthy.

Serving as a cloud-based industry utility, Health TranZform platform enables different healthcare stakeholders to comfortably interact with each other and around the care continuum. Healthcare provider and payers can leverage the new platform to increase consumer engagement and operational efficiency.  The secure platform allows the integration of data from multiple systems, including data from physician practice management systems, remunerator data from Cognizant’s Trizetto payer core administration platforms, and other healthcare ecosystem platforms along with Electronic Health Records (EHR) to drive customer experience and inspire more advanced solutions.

The successful engagement and empowerment of healthcare consumer and delivering value-based care can be achieved by broad new digital and business process capabilities that allow customizations, self-service, and more control across care decisions. “We are working with leading global partners like Orion Health to integrate capabilities into the Cognizant Health TranZform platform that will give healthcare organizations a cost-effective, seamless way to provide a differentiated, high-value, customer-centric experience,” says Krish Venkat, President, Healthcare and Life Sciences, Cognizant.

"Orion has been working to create a new model for collaboration across healthcare stakeholders and our relationship with Cognizant will create a significant opportunity to expand the breadth of data from the insights given by Orion," says Ian McCrae, CEO, Orion Health.  McCrae exemplifies that the partnership strengthens TranZform to deploy and organize consumer-generated, social, clinical, and financial data across multiple vendors and sources.

At the 2016 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) exhibition and conference at booth number #1416, Cognizant is showcasing its platform, TranZform, and other innovative healthcare solutions.
