Is a lack of analytic resources harming your efficiency?
As ACO programs evolve and mature, many are realizing that in order to thrive, they should reexamine the resources necessary to support physicians and the financial objectives of the organization.
Providers are always eager to improve clinical outcomes. However, the sheer volume of data involved with juggling “outcomes” across multiple groups and practices makes it difficult to perform efficiently.
ACOs need the right resources on the analytics side to understand where opportunities exist to drive performance.
Those analytic resources should have, as their primary goals, the ability to provide clear and accurate information that allows leaders to make informed decisions and allows administrators to track and document performance.
Leveraging technology in the right way can lead to operational improvements and efficiencies that allow healthcare organizations to actively manage each step of the patient experience.
Clinical Performance Data
Some payer’s make information available, which is entirely based on claims. While this is helpful, it’s critical to understand constraints of using single-sided data when measuring performance.
While claims data is helpful and directionally informative, claims-based data is only half of the story and does not paint a clear picture of the patient experience.
Combining clinical, claims, social and other data into a single platform can transform how groups are analyzing performance. Providing a 360-degree view of the patient experience is essential to managing the process effectively.
Having the tools to necessary to examine performance is important. But be cautious not to overlook the larger picture view of how analytic tools dovetail with population health and care coordination initiatives.
Finely tuned organizations will actively leverage data to help close gaps in care and manage at-risk populations – while tuning their clinical behaviors to achieve the most restrictive of contracted measures.
