Geisinger Health System in Danville, Pa., has spun off intellectual capital into a new consulting and technology services company called xG Health Solutions.

Oak Investment Partners, a capital venture firm with holdings of $9 billion in more than 500 companies, has invested $40 million in xG Health Solutions. The company will provide consulting, population health management analytics, interpretation and reporting; and patient and population care management, health information technology optimization and third-party administration services.

The non-TPA services are based on Geisinger “innovations and know-how” according to the organization. For instance, the delivery system’s medical home project has cut hospitalizations by 18 percent, readmissions by 24 percent and emergency room visits by 20 percent for Medicare patients, with impressive results for patients covered under commercial insurance, as well. Geisinger has shared the medical home model with hospitals in five states.

The new xG Health Solutions includes clinical and technical staff from Geisinger, including physicians, nurses, case managers, clinical and actuarial informatics experts, and administrators. Earl Steinberg, M.D., executive vice president of innovation and dissemination, will lead the new company as CEO. Steinberg previously led Resolution Health, a population analytics vendor that WellPoint acquired.

The company’s Web site, xghealth.com, is not yet populated except for a contact link.
