Aggregating Disparate Data
Health care systems are challenged to make sense of financial, clinical, operational and patient experience data in transactional system silos across their organization.
Catalyst provides a flexible, agile and late binding data warehouse platform that integrates data from source transactional systems into source data marts using a bus architecture that links master reference data (such as patient and provider IDs) across source marts. Catalyst solutions accelerate data integration, and standardize naming conventions, data types and metadata.
Many healthcare systems spend considerable time manually gathering and merging data leaving little time for analysis to identify patterns, trends and correlations.
Catalyst provides a metric repository that automates internal and external report creation. Now you can use key operational performance indicators to create reports, scorecards and dashboards of departmental metrics, and billing-based patient registries for payers, specialty society reporting, and regulatory needs. You can also see trending information and use drill-down capabilities to perform root cause analysis in underperforming metrics.
Managing the Health of Populations
Billing data that underestimates or misrepresents cohorts of patients has hampered managing population health. In addition, quality measures are often inaccurately reported because of the complexity of using multiple clinical factors.
Catalyst’s solution incorporates evidence-based patient registries and provides powerful tools that accommodate complex clinical and temporal definitions of patient cohorts. The tools allow clinical teams to explore atomic level data to identify causes of clinical or data capture variation and to rapidly adjust the cohort definitions as they explore data.
Removing Waste from Healthcare
Waste in healthcare today is one of our nation’s largest challenges, yet healthcare organizations struggle to identify their greatest opportunities for waste reduction and then eliminate that waste.
Catalyst software is incredibly effective at helping you identify care improvement opportunities and prioritize them based on thorough analysis of volume and variation of care. The software lets you categorize improvement opportunities based on unnecessary, inefficient and potentially unsafe care. And helps you enact change to systematically and permanently improve care by eliminating waste.
