BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Lumeon, the leader in Care Pathway Management, today announced its participation in the Cedars-Sinai Accelerator Powered by Techstars. Through the Accelerator, Lumeon is collaborating with Cedars-Sinai to identify digital care pathways that can be deployed in care settings throughout the U.S.
Leveraging its experience orchestrating pathways across multiple care specialties through Europe, Lumeon will enable U.S. providers to deliver care in an entirely new way, using intelligent automation. Its unique pathway approach fluidly connects care teams and automated processes, augmenting existing systems with real-time situational awareness.
Within the Accelerator, the company’s initial focus is on surgical pathways, with the aim of reducing cancelations, optimizing length of stay and lowering readmissions - problems that cost the U.S. healthcare industry billions of dollars each year. This approach will enable care teams to deliver a personalized and adaptive care plan for every patient.
“Today, no one has really solved the fundamental issue of care fragmentation, or found a way to deliver end-to-end personalized care at scale, without placing huge strain on resources,” said Lumeon CEO, Robbie Hughes. “The challenge is rarely the care decisions; it’s the difficulty operationalizing them into a longitudinal plan that reliably delivers the best possible care, every time, for every patient.”
“Hospitals around the country understand too well the costs associated with surgical pathways and the impact of same-day cancelations, complications and complex administrative processes,” said Bryan Croft, Senior Vice President Operations, at Cedars-Sinai. “We are excited to have Lumeon in the Accelerator to help explore solutions that can maximize value from our existing technology, and can scale for us across other departments, as well as across other hospitals throughout the U.S.”
“The outstanding surgeons in our system are singularly focused on providing the best possible outcomes for our patients,” said Bruce L. Gewertz, MD, Surgeon-in-Chief and Vice President for Interventional Services at Cedars-Sinai. “One of our key areas of focus is to understand the relationship between task, team, technology and environment. Lumeon has a solution that designs and operationalizes these relationships, adding real value to our patients and care teams.”
Matt Kozlov, Managing Director of the Cedars-Sinai Accelerator Powered by Techstars, added, “We are delighted that Lumeon is part of our 2017 accelerator cohort – we see real potential for the technology to expand across the U.S. hospital and ambulatory market, especially as it’s been built to adapt to each provider’s own care process model.”
Lumeon enables healthcare organizations to automate systems and processes, bringing situational awareness to care operations to deliver high performance, team-centered healthcare.
The industry-leading Lumeon Care Pathway Management (CPM) platform and suite of solutions empower health organizations to take control of their end-to-end care delivery model and maximize the use of resources. By iteratively designing and deploying efficient pathways, organizations reduce cost and minimize variation, while flexibly adapting to emerging needs.
