He explained that, like an EHR that stores clinical data, Medorion captures the behavior of individual members to create an “electronic behavior record” database. To create records, Medorion’s platform aggregates data from multiple sources that payers can access, including information about care gaps, eligibility data, claims, and social determinants of health data. The platform also generates, tracks and stores digital participation data.

The company’s software has been deployed by a handful of US health programs, although Kleinbort did not provide any name.
