The healthcare industry is transitioning to a value-based model in which organizations are compensated not for services performed, but for keeping patients and populations well. This approach emphasizes outcomes and value rather than procedures and fees, incentivizing providers to improve efficiency by better managing their populations. “We embraced this transition very early, and built a comprehensive population health platform ideal for value-based healthcare models,” says LeRoy E. Jones, CEO of GSI Health. “Now, we are a leading provider for care coordination tools supporting value-based programs. GSI Health helps providers stay current with the evolving industry, working hand in hand with them to ensure that they have the tools to continue to meet the needs of their patients, populations and payers.”
WORDS OF WISDOM: “I’m motivated each day knowing that our employees have chosen to bring their talents to this company and depend on me to keep the company going strong.”
GSI Health’s Philadelphia roots run deep. When Jones, a native Philadelphian, founded the company, friends and colleagues urged him to live and build a business elsewhere, citing the high city taxes, crime rate and other challenges. He chose to remain in his hometown anyway, believing his status as a local business owner could serve as a role model within the South Philadelphia community where much of his family resides.
