Predictive Modeling News, January 2013

by Dan Hogan, Founder & Chief Executive Officer, Medalogix

Predictive modeling is not a new tool in healthcare. While it is just now being meaningfully applied in the home health segment of the healthcare industry, predictive modeling has been used on the claims and benefits side of the business for years. However, the data available for analysis and the manner in which that analysis is being utilized in healthcare is new. The driver of this change is the initiation of pay-for-performance healthcare triggered by the Affordable Care Act.


Dan Hogan founded Medalogix in 2009 to address the medication complications he saw occurring among geriatric patients at Doctor’s Associates Home Health, the Manchester, TN, home health agency he owned and operated from 2005 to 2010. Now part of SunCrest Healthcare Inc., Doctor’s Associates Home Health employs 108 full- and part-time staff to provide skilled nursing, physical therapy, speech therapy and medical social services to approximately 380 homebound geriatric patients in rural communities in the area east of Nashville. Hogan is also founder and chair of the HARP Project, a not-for-profit organi- zation that combats acute childhood malnutrition in several areas of the developing world. In early 2010, HARP partnered with the Vanderbilt Center for Latin American Studies and explored the deployment of a manufacturing facility to provide nutrient- infused baby food and adult nutrition bars to the patient community currently served by several rural pediatric clinics.

Medalogix is a health data analysis firm focused on the reduction of hospital readmissions from post-acute settings like home health or skilled nursing. The company uses artificial intelligence constructs to mine clinical and medication data to identify those patients that are most at risk.


Alternate Solutions HomeCare (ASH) directors reported a 35.9% average rate decrease in 30-day hospital readmissions from the third quarter of 2011 to the third quarter three of 2012. One factor directors at ASH attribute the dramatic decrease to, is the use of Medalogix predictive modeling software, which has enabled them to specify and streamline appropriate clinical interventions.
