Innovaccer’s Data Activation Platform Rated Top End-to-End Hospital & Health System Population Health Solution, 2023 Black Book (TM) Survey

Black Book's intensive study of population health data activation platforms and data management systems included the input of technology, clinical and financial leaders in hospitals, physician organizations, ambulatory care and ancillaries, health systems, and clinically integrated networks and rated on client experience by 2,539 participants in the crowdsourced survey from August 2022 to January 2023.

Ninety percent of healthcare IT leaders surveyed revealed their organizations are prioritizing data integration planning in 2023 and thirty percent have allocated funds to address the issue this budget year. In March 2020 at the start of the pandemic, two new rules were mandated to implement interoperability and patient access provisions of the 21st Century Cures Act. The rules promote FHIR as the foundational standard to support data exchange in healthcare putting provider IT users on alert. 

According to provider organizations surveyed, their need for health data integration is driven by rising provider costs including locating and avoiding duplicate and unnecessary procedures (90%), the growing volume of healthcare consumer data (82%), consumer demand on providers for health results (92%), and gaps in clinical device connectivity (97%).

Despite the rising need to reduce healthcare expenditure by using advanced operational technologies, there remain significant concerns related to data privacy hampering global healthcare IT integration market growth according to 96% of technology executives polled.

"'As health systems navigate the complexities of population health management, strains on the data ecosystem of hospitals can jeopardize progress," said Doug Brown, Managing Partner of Black Book Research. "Bringing together datasets from various sources is critical to enable population health efforts, but so far has proved to be a formidable challenge for payers and providers alike. Population health management technology is the transforming collecting, integrating, normalizing, and interpreting data from across care interactions, devices, apps, and settings and is critical in a value-based system."

In the sweeping Black Book survey of hospital IT users, population health management technologies were scored on eighteen PHM-centric key performance indicators including Strategic Alignment with Client Goals, Innovation, and Risk Models, Client Relationships and Cultural Fit, Trust and Accountability, Deployment and Implementation, Interoperability, Reliability, Financial Viability and Managerial Stability, Customer Care Support, and Best-of-Breed Technology.

Black Book Research announced that San Francisco-based Innovaccer achieved the top honor for highest provider user experience and outcomes in the annual 2023 customer polls and competitive research of twenty data activation platforms, data integration, and interoperability solutions. The IT leader achieved top client ratings across ten of eighteen key performance indicators including top cybersecurity and data privacy efforts, integration and interface execution, and quality client relationships and customer service. Innovaccer scored a mean of 9.64 (on the 1.00 to 10.00 scale.)

End-to-end provider Population Health Management Solutions included Data Integration Platforms, Data Aggregation and Analytics, Financial Costing and Bundling, Care Management, Risk Modeling, and Patient Outreach capabilities for software, services, and consultant firms.

Connected Health Initiative Publishes Study on Americans’ Use of Personal Health Wearables

Americans are hopeful wearables will become a critical tool for better health, look for reimbursement support

The Connected Health Initiative conducted a national poll of Americans asking how they wear, share, and pay for their wearable devices. With the surge in popularity of wearable health technology devices, including activity trackers, smartwatches, and smart clothing, the study found the majority of those who own wearables experienced improved health and fitness outcomes, but upfront costs prove to be a barrier for many.

How Americans wear their wearables: 

  • More than 89 million Americans use a wearable device.
  • Of those Americans using a wearable, a majority of them track their exercise and fitness (86 percent), sleep (58 percent), and weight (51 percent).
  • Of those Americans using a wearable, 37 percent are managing a chronic condition.

How Americans share their wearable data:

  • Wearable health device owners currently, or are willing to, share this data with their healthcare provider: 82 percent. 
  • Wearable health device owners with a chronic condition say their wearable device has simplified the management of their health, as well as improved their quality of life: 40 percent.

How Americans would like to pay for their wearable: 

  • Millions of Americans have flexible spending accounts or health savings accounts (FSAs or HSAs), but they can't use them to purchase modern health technology. These accounts mainly benefit middle-income earners. An estimated 70 million Americans are covered by HSA accounts alone, with approximately 78 percent of account holders earning less than $100,000 annually—and 70 percent earning between $30,000 and $90,000.
  • Fifty-seven percent of HSA/FSA participants without a wearable say they would be more likely to acquire one if their HSA or FSA covered it.

About the Connected Health Initiative

CHI is the leading effort by stakeholders across the connected health ecosystem to responsibly encourage the use of digital health innovations and support an environment in which patients and consumers can see improvements in their health. We seek essential policy changes that will help all Americans benefit from an information and communications technology-enabled American healthcare system. For more information, see

This nationwide poll was conducted between April 21-23, 2023, among a sample of 2,204 adults. The interviews were conducted online, and the data were weighted to approximate a target sample of adults based on age, gender, race, educational attainment, region, gender by age, and race by educational attainment. Results from the full survey have a margin of error of plus or minus 2 percentage points.
