Analytics Enables Identification of Opportunities to Improve Value and Accountable Care Organization Performance
Carle Health and Health Alliance attempted to use its data to identify sources of cost and utilization variation, but burdensome manual data collection and reporting processes made it incredibly difficult to identify opportunities for improvement. Obtaining the necessary data was an iterative process that required business intelligence teams and operational leaders to meet multiple times over many weeks. It was not uncommon for it to take two to four months to obtain the data necessary to establish direction for improvement work. Using the Health Catalyst® Data Operating System (DOS™) platform and the Health Catalyst® Value Optimizer™ analytics application, Carle now has the integrated data and analytics required to understand and improve its risk-based contract performance and identify actionable opportunities for improvement.
- $100K in manual labor costs avoided, the result of eliminating multiple iterations and meetings to obtain the necessary data and analyses.
- >$10M in cost and utilization opportunity identified.
- >90 percent improvement in analytics efficiency. Analyses that previously required months to complete are now completed in minutes.
