Inovalon's ePASS to Be Available at Walgreens

Advancements in technology have made it easier than ever before to collect vast amounts of data related to a subject. However, using this data the right way is they key difference between success and failure. In other words, collecting data is the easier part, but customizing it to meet the requirements of different target groups is the difficult aspect. This is why data-driven applications have taken center-stage in all spheres of life today.

Health-care is one such area where data driven applications have given a customized experience for patients, service providers and health insurance companies. One such application is Inovalon's Electronic Patient Assessment Solution Suite (ePASS). This is a web-based application that empowers users to make the right diagnosis and treatment for different conditions. It aggregates data from a variety of sources such as claims, prescriptions, diagnostic results and provider history and any other source that gives data about a patient's health. Using this information, it gives a complete picture about a patient's medical profile and offers insight about a patient's care and documentation. This helps to improve the quality of service provided, better coordinate the healthcare offered and fill the gaps with respect to documentation.

To pass on the benefits of this software to patients and healthcare providers, Inovalon has entered into a strategic with Walgreens, the largest drugstore chain of companies in the US. With this partnership, Inovalon aims to reach out to millions of customers through Walgreens' 400 locations across the country.

This partnership is beneficial to Walgreens as well. Through this partnership, it can provide a higher degree of personalized care for its patients. It also gives the drugstore an edge over its competitors as ePass is likely to improve the quality of service offered to customers.

It is a win-win situation for the customers too because they get to view all their medical data in one place. For these reasons, this partnership is expected to be beneficial for everyone involved.
