Improving Population Health: Data-Driven Approach to Identifying and Engaging Patients with High Risk of Mortality from COVID-19

Leveraging the Health Catalyst® Data Operating System (DOS™) platform and the ACO Risk Stratification Dashboard, MemorialCare developed and implemented an algorithm to identify and risk-stratify members at the highest risk of mortality from COVID-19. Care managers can visualize at-risk members and the specific factors contributing to the increased risk, allowing them to quickly prioritize member lists for outreach—improving population health and decreasing mortality.

Featured Outcomes

  • Developed and deployed the algorithm for COVID-19 risk for mortality within four days. The algorithm was applied and visualized on MemorialCare’s entire ACO population.
  • Within one week, the algorithm was expanded to include MemorialCare’s entire HMO population.
  • 66 percent of individuals in the extremely high-risk category of MemorialCare’s ACO population were engaged by care management.

Analytics Driven Improvement Efforts Reduces Surgical Supply Costs by $3.2M

Banner Health identified considerable variation in surgical supply use across its facilities. The health system desired a collaborative, data-driven strategy that would allow it to maintain high-quality outcomes while simultaneously decreasing costs across all procedures systemwide. To standardize supply use, Banner Health implemented an analytics application to help identify high-volume, high-cost surgical procedures that varied across the system. It then built standardized surgical preference cards for the high-volume procedures.

Featured Outcomes

  • $3.2M reduction in surgical supply costs for laparoscopic appendectomy, laparoscopic cholecystectomy, robotic assisted hysterectomy, and total hip and knee replacements, in just 15 months.

Population Health Strategies Improve Diabetes Management

Thibodaux Regional Health System recognized its patients with Type 2 diabetes had hemoglobin A1C (HbA1c) levels that exceeded the evidence-based guidelines for blood glucose control and sought to improve the health of this patient population. Using a data platform and a consistent improvement methodology, Thibodaux Regional learned more about the challenges to diabetes self-management in its population. The organization was then able to improve its outreach and support for patients with diabetes.

Featured Outcomes

  • 19.1 percent relative reduction of HbA1c for patients with diabetes in the first year of the organization’s improvement efforts.
  • 14.5 percent relative reduction of HbA1c for patients with diabetes in the second year of its improvement efforts.

Responding and Recovering in Clinic Operations with Advanced Analytics

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.

Featured Outcomes

  • In just one week, deployed integrated dashboards for managing clinic capacity, visit volume, COVID-19 mobile appointments, and telehealth appointments.
  • Supported the shift of telehealth from a supplement to a primary modality, allowing its customers to lay the foundation for more comprehensive and available virtual care.
  • Provided the data and analytics critical for both the ongoing management of the clinical realities of the COVID-19 pandemic, and business redesign to drive financial recovery.

Virtual Care Analytics Supports Rapid Change in Ambulatory Care Delivery

Community Health Network (CHNw) rapidly adjusted to COVID-19, changing primary care appointments to virtual care. With this change came the need for new data and analytics to assess the impact on the number of completed appointments, and the implications for provider productivity and reimbursement rates. CHNw is using data and analytics to effectively manage the transition from in-person visits to virtual visits, safely meeting patient needs while also ensuring ongoing financial viability.

Featured Outcomes

  • In just one-week, deployed COVID-19 virtual visit scenario planning.
  • Virtual visits now comprise more than 80 percent of all visits—40K visits in just one month.
  • Efficient prioritization of the ambulatory visit backlog.
