COVID-19 has highlighted the healthcare imperative of effective care management—in particular, the ability for health systems to rapidly adapt their care management approach based on ever-changing healthcare terrain. Typical care management programs lack transparency, comprehensive data, and flexibility. This makes it difficult for care teams to easily change their care management programs based on patient population needs and opportunities. To meet these challenges, the Health Catalyst Care Management Suite leverages a transparent, data-driven strategy with expertise to help health systems maximize care management ROI.
Able Health combines all claims and clinical data from a health system’s data sources (inside and outside of the hospital) into one location, allowing healthcare leaders to focus more on improving care and less on data management. The combination of a measures engine that calculates performance, a performance dashboard that displays measure performance, and a submission engine that submits data to payers, all powered by the Health Catalyst® Data Operating System (DOS™), enables health systems to identify areas for improvement based on one complete picture of quality performance.
According to a November 2019 survey, 62 percent of clinicians and other healthcare professionals view burnout as a major problem industrywide.

Responses to additional questions reveal more about clinician burnout experience and views on the technology designed to help:

Healthcare organizations face provider dissatisfaction, lack of data integration, and excessive clicks to perform basic functions within the EHR. Closed-Loop Analytics™ aggregates data, circulates that data into new or existing workflows, and then surfaces best practice alerts at the decision point for physicians, clinical providers, and financial and operational teams. With clear calls to action throughout the workflow, organizations improve the utilization and effectiveness of analytics tools, yielding simplified workflows, decreased clicks, and improved outcomes.
