Healthcare Improvement Products

Healthcare improvement products consist of evidence-based starter sets that support and accelerate cross-functional clinical process improvement teams. Starter sets contain detailed and customizable cohort definitions, aim packets (to help focus improvements), and clinical/operational workflow documentation and metrics—all based on thorough reviews of clinical literature. Starter sets will enable clinical improvement teams to focus on customizing existing knowledge assets to their organization rather than having to start with a blank canvas. Health Catalyst also provides a cross-functional team of clinical and technical resources that can help clients accelerate implementation and deployment of analytics-driven clinical improvement programs.
