Leading population health management company ranks no. 2828 on 2019 Inc. 5000

BURLINGTON, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#inc5000Arcadia.io, the leading population health management company, was ranked no. 2828 on Inc. magazine’s annual list of the fastest-growing, privately-held companies in the U.S. Arcadia’s ranking is based on its significant revenue growth over a three year period from 2015-2018 and further reinforces Arcadia’s position as the pioneer in value-based care transformation.

“Healthcare is in the midst of a massive transformation to value-based care that affects all parts of the industry. Our data, analytics and workflow technology have helped some of the largest health systems in the country lead the way to improved outcomes for the patient, provider and system. We are honored to be recognized in terms of scale and growth as one of the organizations moving healthcare forward,” said Arcadia CEO Sean Carroll. “Our growth is a testament to the insights generated from our platform, and to our delivery team putting our customers’ outcomes first every day to ensure that they can continue to improve the quality and value of the care they deliver.”

Arcadia has generated $2.4 billion in customer savings over a five-year period. Arcadia has also benchmarked over 50 million patient lives, enabling its customers to gain population and performance insights at scale.

The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”

Being recognized as one of the fastest growing companies in the U.S. is the latest accolade for Arcadia this year. Arcadia is the only population health management vendor to lead rankings by every major analyst covering this space, including KLAS Research, IDC, and Forrester, where Arcadia was the highest-scoring current offering in healthcare analytics.

KLAS Research ranked Arcadia as Best in KLAS in the 2019 Value-Based Care Managed Services segment, based on verified customer interviews conducted by KLAS over a 12-month period. In addition, KLAS ranked Arcadia among the best value-based care and population health management tools and services in two separate reports. Arcadia was the only fully-rated vendor to rank in both Value Based Care Managed Services 2018, where it scored highest among all full-service value-based care managed services vendors1, and Population Health Management, 2018, where it was the strongest fully-rated population health management vendor for financial outcome success.2

Methodology

The 2019 Inc. 5000 is ranked according to percentage revenue growth when comparing 2015 and 2018. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2015. They had to be U.S.-based, privately held, for profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2018. (Since then, a number of companies on the list have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2015 is $100,000; the minimum for 2018 is $2 million.

CORRECTING and REPLACING AM Best Affirms Credit Ratings of Grupo Nacional Provincial S.A.B.

Business Wire

Published

on

Reading Time: 3 minutes

MEXICO CITY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sixth paragraph, last sentence of release should read: As of June 2019, the company continued to post adequate underwriting results, investment yield and net income of MXN 2.4 billion (instead of MXN 2.4 million).

The corrected release reads:

AM BEST AFFIRMS CREDIT RATINGS OF GRUPO NACIONAL PROVINCIAL S.A.B.

AM Best has affirmed the Financial Strength Rating (FSR) of A (Excellent), the Long-Term Issuer Credit Rating (Long-Term ICR) of “a” and the Mexico National Scale Rating of “aaa.MX” of Grupo Nacional Provincial S.A.B. (GNP) (Mexico City, Mexico). The outlook of these Credit Ratings (ratings) remains stable.

The ratings reflect GNP’s balance sheet strength, which AM Best categorizes as very strong, as well as its adequate operating performance, favorable business profile and appropriate enterprise risk management.

GNP is the largest domestic insurer within Mexico based on gross written premiums (GWP). The company operates as a composite insurer of life and non-life business; core business segments include life, health and automobile coverage.

Dividend payments, driven by the company’s targets on capital efficiency, have partially restricted AM Best’s view of GNP’s risk-adjusted capitalization in the past. However, in recent years, GNP’s balance sheet strength, as measured by Best’s Capital Adequacy Ratio (BCAR), is very strong, having benefited from additional equity surplus due to changes in statutory accounting at year-end 2016, and positive bottom-line results during 2016-2018.

The additional equity surplus is a consequence of implementing accounting measures based on market value approximations of assets and liabilities. GNP follows conservative practices in terms of its asset-liability management. In addition, the company’s balance sheet strength is reinforced by its good reinsurance program placed with highly rated counterparties, which adequately protects the company’s risk retention. The effectiveness of these practices was demonstrated by the lack of any material impact on the company’s capital position from the September 2017 earthquakes in central Mexico.

During 2018, GNP reported 7.9% growth in GWP, while maintaining profitable business in its core segments. The company’s operating performance remained solid, having benefited from better underwriting performance metrics, and a consistent improvement in the investment income. Policies were aligned to market changes, and the pricing model was improved to gain competitiveness and market share in low risk areas. As of June 2019, the company continued to post adequate underwriting results, investment yield and net income of MXN 2.4 billion.

Positive rating actions could take place if the company is able to maintain its current level of risk-adjusted capitalization while improving its bottom-line results and profitability indicators to levels more in line with highly rated peers. Negative rating actions could take place if the company’s additional equity erodes with a sustained negative operating performance, or if the amount of dividends paid negatively impacts risk-adjusted capitalization to a level that is no longer supportive of the current rating levels.

This press release relates to Credit Ratings that have been published on AM Best’s website. For all rating information relating to the release and pertinent disclosures, including details of the office responsible for issuing each of the individual ratings referenced in this release, please see AM Best’s Recent Rating Activity web page. For additional information regarding the use and limitations of Credit Rating opinions, please view Understanding Best’s Credit Ratings.

EQUITY ALERT: Rosen Law Firm Announces Investigation of Securities Claims Against Live Nation Entertainment, Inc. – LYV

Business Wire

Published

Reading Time: 2 minutes

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, announces it is investigating potential securities claims on behalf of shareholders of Live Nation Entertainment, Inc. (NYSE: LYV) resulting from allegations that Live Nation may have issued materially misleading business information to the investing public.

On December 13, 2019, the Wall Street Journal reported that the U.S. Department of Justice (“DOJ”) was preparing to take legal action against Live Nation based on allegations that the company sought to “strong-arm” concert venues into using its market-dominant Ticketmaster subsidiary. Such efforts would violate the terms of a settlement agreement that Live Nation and Ticketmaster reached with the government in 2010 as a condition of their merger. Under that agreement, the DOJ allowed the companies to combine, but required them to abide by conditions meant to preserve competition in the music and ticketing industries.

As a result of this news, Live Nation’s share price fell $5.09 or 7.3% to close at 64.34 on December 13, 2019.

Rosen Law Firm is preparing a class action lawsuit to recover losses suffered by Live Nation investors. If you purchased shares of Live Nation please visit the firm’s website at http://www.rosenlegal.com/cases-register-1741.html to join the class action.
