What is the Provider Productivity Analytic Accelerator?

Manually compiling EMR, billing system, and external benchmark data to prepare static, one-dimensional reports is labor intensive and fails to provide meaningful analysis of provider productivity and the drivers of variation.

The Provider Productivity Analytic Accelerator provides a robust analytic front-end to organize, summarize, and provide actionable visualizations of provider production. By reducing the time to compile production reports and providing a single source of truth for productivity measures, the application provides quick, reliable information for increased efficiency and greater provider productivity.

For healthcare organizations, it’s vital to manage the efficiency and effectiveness of providers. Clinic or practice managers need to be able to isolate causes of variance in productivity, based on differences in acuity (patient mix based on wRVUs, CPT codes) and/or volume of patient visits. This analysis is the key to identifying and prioritizing improvements.

Provider Productivity Benefits and Features

Access an at-a-glance, near real-time view of provider productivity.

Automatically refreshed as new data is available, the application combines high-level financial and operational performance measures in an easy-to-consume, one-page summary.

Identify—and understand—variation across time periods and against benchmarks.

Visualizations highlight areas of variance, often opportunities for improvement. Guided navigation and drill-down help users find answers to the series of questions typically asked, so they can identify and investigate the major contributors to the variance.

Provider Productivity Use Cases

A physician group has agreed to productivity measures by specialist, and now each practice manager wants to see how their practice is performing. The practice manager uses Provider Productivity to review trends and create action plans to achieve the productivity targets.

The Finance office is working to understand a sudden increase in cardiology visits, yet a drop in revenue. The cardiology Clinic Manager pulls up Provider Productivity and quickly sees that two new providers are currently seeing lower acuity patients. This supports conversations across cardiology leadership about the reasons for the change and its impact on the business.
