Acuitas Health was challenged to identify opportunities for shared savings, reducing cost while also improving quality outcomes. Using Acuitas Health’s advanced analytics, providers and payers can now connect, communicate, and share insights that enable the organizations to identify opportunities to decrease costs for all partners, and increase outcomes that yield benefits in several areas, including quality improvement, claims optimization, and risk adjustment.
Acuitas Health was challenged to assist the providers it supports in rapidly modifying clinic operations to address COVID-19. Leveraging the Health Catalyst® Data Operating System (DOS™) platform, Acuitas Health is able to aggregate and visualize new data, supporting its clients in quickly transitioning to telehealth, and monitoring and managing the impact of canceled appointments on operational and financial performance.
Acuitas Health improved access to data for its partner clinicians by using its data platform and closed-loop analytics to integrate data from more than ten disparate systems. Clinicians receive patient-specific details before the patient visit, allowing them to identify opportunities for health maintenance, improve quality, support data-driven medical decision making, increase adoption of best practices, and improve hierarchical condition category (HCC) coding.
Organizations that participate in various Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services sponsored programs must use a certified health IT product to electronically submit performance data. Acuitas Health partnered with Health Catalyst to develop a solution that would enable the organization to meet the electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) reporting requirements.
To address physicians’ concerns with value-based care requires timely and actionable data for generating insights and initiating improvement programs. Read how Acuitas Health utilized its analytics platform to support the development of practice intelligence profiles—comprehensive views of partner practices used by the practice intelligence team to increase provider engagement and strengthen improvement efforts.
Data-driven decisions and analytics are critical for organizations and physician practices transitioning to value-based care, although many organizations struggle with measuring the effectiveness of these population health initiatives.
To obtain sophisticated, actionable analytics and automate processes, Acuitas Health deployed the Health Catalyst® Patient Intake and Care Coordination applications concurrent with beginning the implementation of the Health Catalyst Data Operating System (DOS™) platform. Acuitas meets the needs of its customers through a sprint to value—going faster than the typical time to value. The concurrent implementation approach used in this roll out set the pace for that sprint to value. In less than 60 days, the organization successfully implemented these tools and began receiving value. Acuitas is now able to:
Collect discrete data, and begin enhancing the work of the integrated care management team in a user-friendly way.
Identify individual caseloads.
Instantly obtain a complete, comparative, real-time picture of caseloads across the team—this reporting took weeks to compile in the past.
Make data-driven decisions on how to improve outcomes.
