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.
- 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.
