NextHealth Technologies, an AI-powered SaaS-based healthcare analytics platform and a subsidiary of Softheon, announced its recognition in the Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Healthcare Data, Analytics and AI, 2022. [1]

The Gartner Hype Cycle notes the emerging technologies that will have the greatest impact on data and analytics initiatives in the healthcare industry. Analyzing the maturity and adoption of technologies provides CIOs and analytics leaders with critical insight to guide their strategic planning decisions.

“We consider Gartner’s recognition of NextHealth as a Sample Vendor in Consumer Persuasion Analytics and Consumer Insight as a Service as a validation of the synergy our integrated solution with NextHealth can bring to the member journey,” said Eugene Sayan, Softheon CEO. “We are thrilled that Gartner has acknowledged NextHealth in the report, and we believe it supports our vision that AI-powered solutions will continue to be part of making healthcare more affordable, accessible, and plentiful.”

With Softheon’s cloud-based eligibility, enrollment, and billing solution and NextHealth’s enhanced AI and consumer engagement capabilities, the member journey can be materially improved – from the shopping experience through initial risk identification, clinical program enrollment, and the renewal process. 

Utilizing leading technology trends, including process automation, machine learning, and business intelligence, allows health plans to influence positive behavior changes throughout the end-to-end journey, improving the return on investment at every stage.

Earlier this year, Softheon discussed some predictive analytics capabilities and member retention with a prominent health plan executive. View a recording of that conversation here.
