Dr. Meadows believes that making Ayin a for-profit venture will allow for maximum regulatory flexibility and also position the company to attract a more robust array of new clients.


“These are tumultuous times for the healthcare industry and organizations are eager for proven strategies and solutions that will stabilize their business and guide their shift toward a new standard of care,” says Dr. Rhonda Medows, CEO of Ayin Health Solutions and president of Population Health at Providence St. Joseph Health.



“We know that when health organizations are able to achieve clinical and financial success, they are better able to influence and care for the communities they serve.”


According to Meadows, Ayin offers population health informatics and advanced analytics to identify complex populations in commercial, employer or Medicaid groups. The company can then identify risk factors and improve care coordination for those people.


For health plans, Ayin helps with quality improvement, particularly in the Medicare Advantage sector, and manages provider networks, among other services. It offers claims adjudication, processing and analytics. Ayin has a pharmacy benefit management service that partners pharmacists and physicians to help better manage costs, according to the company.
