CliniWorks Forms a Strategic Alliance with Pfizer to Develop a Population Health Management Platform with Advanced Analytics and Patient Care Capabilities
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. & RAMAT HASHARON, Israel --(Business Wire)--
CliniWorks today announced a strategic alliance between its I subsidiary
CliniWorks (Israel) Ltd. ("CliniWorks Israel") and Pfizer Inc.
("Pfizer") to jointly advance the parties' respective capabilities in
working with healthcare provider organizations to identify and close
clinical or quality gaps to improve population health. The two companies
are partnering to develop a population health management platform
solution that leverages CliniWorks' technologies in disparate data
aggregation and Natural Language Processing (which interprets free text
information) of de-identified healthcare data and Pfizer's scientific,
clinical and disease expertise. This platform will aim to enable large
medical groups and integrated delivery system institutions to deliver
near real-time and more efficient and effective quality healthcare, as
well as improve patient engagement or activation, reaching the Centers
for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) Triple Aim. The development work will be
partially supported by a grant received by CliniWorks and Pfizer from
the BIRD Foundation (www.birdf.com).
Nitzan Sneh, CliniWorks CEO, said, "Pfizer's leadership position in
global healthcare and patient care complements our technology
capabilities and, collectively, will bring about significant
efficiencies for healthcare delivery organizations involved in the
continuum of patient care."
"This alliance builds on our existing relationship with CliniWorks and
will allow us to collaborate with our key customers in innovative and
impactful ways to potentially improve healthcare delivery and patient
outcomes," said Teresa Griesing, VP North America Medical Affairs,
Pfizer Global Innovation Pharma Business Unit.
