25 July, 2016 – LONDON – Today Qinec unveiled its new brand including a new company name – Lumeon. The new brand is designed to highlight the company’s position as the established leader in Care Pathway Management (CPM). Lumeon reflects a brighter way of thinking that enables healthcare providers to deliver transformational change resulting in better care at less cost.  With the introduction of the new brand, Lumeon also introduces its new Lumeon Care Pathway Marketplace and Care Pathway Community, designed to allow providers to accelerate the delivery of new business models and speed the definition and distribution of best-in-class care pathways.

Lumeon Care Pathway Manager provides a single, real-time view of the entire patient journey, from referral to outcome.  It integrates siloed clinical and administrative systems, and gives providers the ability to design and automate their own care pathway rules set.  Each patient can then be automatically progressed through their personal care journey based on their individual data and the defined treatment plan.  By looking across the full end-to-end care pathway, CPM allows providers to see the bigger picture and address the system, not just the symptom, behind healthcare transformation. For providers, a care pathway approach to healthcare delivery is measurable, both in terms of efficiency and outcome; predictable so that demand is visible and can be anticipated; and controlled, eliminating unwanted variance.

Patricia Wynn, MD, The Advisory Board Company said: “Healthcare is an incredibly complex industry, with a lot of variation in the delivery of care which results in high costs; however most of this variation is unwarranted. Organisations can reduce the high costs of unwarranted care variation by supporting clinicians to create their own best-in-class standards. By taking a supportive approach, doctors are engaged in value-driven improvements of standards of care, variation reduction projects are aligned with organisational goals, and efforts are sustainable and can be easily replicated.”

Lumeon Care Pathway Marketplace and Community

To further accelerate business transformation, Lumeon launched its Marketplace. The full healthcare ecosystem – providers, payers and partners – can buy and sell care pathways on the Marketplace, enabling new revenue streams and accelerating the design and delivery of new care models.  Marketplace launches with 20 care pathways and will continuously be updated as new care pathways are established through Marketplace partners.

Additionally, Lumeon launched its Care Pathway Community, which brings together leading clinical, operational and academic healthcare professionals to establish innovative ‘gold standard’ care pathways of the future. Care Pathway Community members are able to network and collaborate with fellow thought leaders across organisational boundaries, and create awareness and benefit from sharing best practices in care pathways across the entire patient journey.

Robbie Hughes, CEO, Lumeon, said, “For the past 10 years we’ve been transforming the business of healthcare delivery for most of the largest commercial healthcare providers in the UK and Europe. Lumeon is a bold reflection of our expertise, and a signal for how we’re continually imagining brighter ways to envision healthcare. The Marketplace and Community offer innovative ways to bring together the industry’s thought leaders to design and distribute best practice – it’s about giving providers everywhere the ability to transform their business to delivering best in class care.”
