"Practice iQ was a business we created to allow physician practices to become patient-centered medical homes," newly named Healthagen CEO Dr. Charles Saunders told InformationWeek Healthcare. "[Healthagen] really is an innovation crucible or innovation arm of Aetna," he said.

Saunders had been named Aetna's president of strategic diversification in 2011 and later served as CEO of the insurance company's Aetna Emerging Businesses business incubator. Healthagen now brings all those operations under a single brand name. "This was an attempt to basically formalize it," Saunders explained.
Healthagen also will operate Accountable Care Solutions, another Aetna business unit. Saunders said that all of Healthagen's offerings will be integrated to allow Aetna to offer customized packages of services to consumers, healthcare providers and "risk bearers" such as accountable care organizations, employers and even other health plans.
Saunders indicated that the Healthagen moniker Saunders is intended to be "neutral" so potential clients, including other payers, have no qualms about working with a division of Aetna. "Most of the [Healthagen companies] are payer-neutral," Saunders said. "Medicity doesn't send data back to Aetna," he added, as an example.
Companies operated or incubated by Healthagen will, however, have access to Aetna's distribution channels. This currently includes about 22 million enrollees as well as other customers, according to Saunders.
