Gain an at-a-glance view of quality of care and its impact.
The application visualizes outcome and process metrics in an easy-to-consume, one-page summary. This allows you to see trends (such as readmissions) as they develop—and take timely action to address issues.
Understand the resources required to provide care for every patient with asthma.
Depending on the availability of data, the application can bring in data from both ambulatory and hospital settings, in and out of network, to help surface the cost of care, utilization of services, and frequency of exacerbations.
Start faster with meaningful, scalable clinical definitions.
The cohorts, definitions, and process measures that come with the accelerator are clinically relevant, standard, and meaningful across domains, ready for customization or adoption in your organization. Organizations are able to look at patients’ demographic information, medication history, and clinical features—not just administrative codes (e.g., ICD, CPT codes)—to precisely identify cohorts of patients with asthma.
Identify improvement opportunities and focus on what matters most.
Outcome metrics typically include ED and hospital utilization rate, LOS, readmission, and cost-per-case. Typical process metrics include documentation of asthma severity and risk, timing of acute care measures (beta-agonists, steroids), appropriateness of chest X-ray and antibiotic usage, use of standard pediatric order set, and provision of an asthma action plan and asthma education. The result? Your team understands the priorities and can help solve problems that stand in the way of improvement.
