Seeking to bring some order to the chaos surrounding healthcare outcome claims, Care Innovations™, an Intel/GE company, launched the Validation Institute to help organizations involved in population health -- from Health Plans to Employers to Vendors -- to compete on the basis of integrity and performance rather than hyperbole. When companies purchase healthcare products and services to influence the health of populations for which they are responsible, they rely on the claims vendors make. Being able to rely on the accuracy or validity of these claims is critical to achieving the desired outcome. Unfortunately, the landscape of healthcare product and service claims often resembles the "Wild West". With no protocols or standardization, companies are left to their own devices to sort through the myriad of claims when making purchasing decisions. The Validation Institute helps these companies to navigate the claims landscape, helping them to make purchasing decisions based on validated claims.
