AI-Enabled Care Management Reduces Healthcare Spending by $32.2M
Almost four trillion dollars is spent on healthcare each year in the U.S., with most expenditures going to patients with chronic health conditions due to unnecessary visits to the emergency department (ED) and unplanned hospital admissions. UnityPoint Health sought to reduce costs by identifying patients with chronic health conditions at a higher risk for overutilizing healthcare services. By leveraging its analytics platform and augmented intelligence (AI), UnityPoint Health has been able to efficiently identify patients that could benefit from enrollment in its care management program.
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.
