Six Steps Towards Meaningful, Ongoing Healthcare Performance Improvement

May 13, 2021

Posted In: Clinical Quality Analytics, Data and Analytics

The long-term success of healthcare performance improvement relies on a sustainable infrastructure and strategic execution. Otherwise, improvement initiatives risk becoming one-off projects that don’t support ongoing advances in critical areas, such as critical areas, clinical outcomes, patient experience, and organizational cost.Healthcare organizations can follow six steps for a sustainable, impactful performance improvement program:1. Integrate performance improvement into strategic objectives.2. Use analytics to unlock data and identify areas of opportunity.3. Prioritize programs using a combination of analytics and an adoption system.4. Define the performance improvement program’s permanent teams.5. Use a best-practice system to define program outcomes and interventions.6. Estimate the ROI.

Posted In: Clinical Quality Analytics, Data and Analytics

Along with the rest of the globe, 2021 healthcare trends across Asia-Pacific (APAC) countries will center on COVID-19 recovery and resuming the healthcare improvement journey. In the APAC region, however, a mix of developed and developing countries poses unique challenges, as healthcare access and basic infrastructure vary widely between urban and rural populations and economic levels. To shepherd healthcare out of the pandemic and enhance delivery overall in 2021, APAC nations will focus on increasing investment in digital health (including virtual care, machine learning, and EMR adoption), achieving universal health coverage, shifting more towards value, and improving payer-provider relationships.

Continuity of Care Documents: Today’s Top Solution for Healthcare Interoperability Demands

July 10, 2019

Posted In: Clinical Quality Analytics, Data and Analytics

While healthcare waits for the expanded data interoperability that FHIR promises, the industry needs an immediate solution for accessing and using disparate data from across the continuum of care. With FHIR potentially several years away, continuity of care documents (CCDs) are the best option for acquiring the ambulatory clinical care data health systems need to close quality gaps today. Because organizations that rely only on claims data to drive quality improvement risk missing out on more that 80 percent of patient information, CCDs are the current must-have answer to interoperability for successful quality improvement.
