Northwell Health (the former North Shore-LIJ) (NY) and consulting firm Newport Health form Health Connect Technologies, which will commercialize population health management products. The joint venture was announced in August 2015, while a pilot of HCT’s tech at Northwell Health’s Lenox Hill Hospital seems to have begun sometime in 2014. “We have seen tremendous results since piloting Health Connect,” says Gus Costalas, ED at Lenox Hill, and CFO of Northwell Health’s Western Region. “In just over 18 months, we have successfully closed the loop for thousands of patients, dramatically increasing patient satisfaction.”


The CMS Innovation Center launches a five-year pilot program to determine whether helping people with social issues related to food, housing, and transportation can improve health outcomes and reduce expenses.

Initial evaluation will focus on reduction in costs, ER visits, and readmissions.
