Analytics Facilitate $1M Grant Award to Improve Access to Behavioral Health Crisis Stabilization
Nearly 25 percent of adults in the state of Washington have behavioral health conditions. Many of these adults are unable to receive adequate treatment. MultiCare Health System (MultiCare), a non-profit healthcare organization in Washington, was experiencing a high number of patients coming to its emergency departments (EDs) for behavioral health needs, depleting its limited ED resources and impeding the quality of patient care. MultiCare sought a grant to help expand its behavioral healthcare and ease the strain on its ED services. The organization leveraged its analytics platform to obtain the necessary data to support the grant application
Predictive Analytics and Care Management Reduces COVID-19 Hospitalization Rates Avoiding Nearly $2M in Costs
For people 65 years of age and older, COVID-19 hospitalization rates in the U.S. have been as high as 1,245.7 per 100,000 population, straining the resources and capacity of health systems. ChristianaCare needed to effectively deploy its care management resources, identifying patients with COVID-19 who were most at risk of severe illness and hospitalization. By leveraging its analytics platform and the predictive power of the Healthcare.AI™ solution to provide COVID-19 risk prediction, the organization was able to provide targeted interventions to those most likely to benefit and help patients avoid unnecessary hospitalization.
Five Ways Activity-Based Costing Can Maximize Earnings
Surviving on thin operating margins means health systems must maximize every financial earning opportunity. To identify threats to the revenue stream, organizations need access to precise, accurate costing information. An activity-based costing (ABC) system leverages patient resource utilization data to reveal exactly how much it costs to deliver care. Unlike traditional costing systems that provide average cost estimates for services rendered, ABC includes five benefits that help systems understand the cost for every aspect of the care delivery process.
Understanding Population Health Management: A Diabetes Example
Diabetes is one of several chronic health conditions at the root of U.S. healthcare challenges. To improve the quality of care and costs associated with diabetes, health systems, clinicians, and patients can benefit from taking a data-centric approach to diabetes management and leveraging population health tools.
