Identify and Prioritize Your Highest-value Improvement Opportunities

Most healthcare organizations are challenged by the arduous work of identifying their highest-value improvement opportunities. They struggle to prioritize their improvement efforts because EMR reports don’t compare cost, utilization, or variation across populations. Alleviate this burden with a strategic, data-driven approach to opportunity analysis.

Next-Generation Technologies

DOS and Touchstone

Our Touchstone analytics application uses artificial intelligence to proactively identify where your organization is performing well (and underperforming), and then recommends and prioritizes opportunities for improvement. Touchstone is built on our data operating system (DOS) platform that integrates data from over 160 numerous disparate sources.

Why Our Approach to Opportunity Analysis Is Different

Health systems need technology solutions that can accurately identify variation (deviations from standard practice, shared baselines, and benchmarks), but these data-driven insights become even more powerful when combined with insights from our nationally recognized experts.

We help you identify and prioritize your most meaningful improvement areas by looking across your clinical, costing, and claims systems to dig into key quality, financial, and operational metrics. We use severity-adjusted analysis and coefficients of variation to look at apples-to-apples comparisons when ranking vastly different care processes.
