Application Overview

The Population Builder™: Stratification Module allows anyone within an organization to efficiently and accurately identify patient groups based on pre-defined, yet easy to customize, populations and risk algorithms. It also provides the architecture and toolkit to integrate the stratified populations into the population health workflow.

Background & Problem Summary

Identifying the right patients for population health interventions is critical to any population health initiative. Not having an accurate and precise stratification model, organizations sometimes struggle to maximize the impact their population health team has on the overall population they manage.

In addition, it can take months to properly create complex stratification algorithms that truly use analytics to target the right patients for the right interventions. According to a recent study, analysts spend over 50% of their time completing a non-analytics task (preparing SQL/ETL data, repeating tasks, and performing simple tasks) instead of focusing on high-impact analytics like targeted stratification.

Benefits & Features

Increase efficiency.

Easy access for non-SQL experts to customize and generate stratified patient lists, reducing the IT reporting burden, increasing effectiveness of care coordination, and providing clinicians with direct access to data that they’ve never had before.

Save time.

Customizable building blocks that you can mix and match in order to find targeted patient lists best suited for population health interventions.

Build trust.

Shareable, transparent logic that provides actionable data to prepare identified populations for population health interventions.

Avoid data silos and ineffective decision making.

Data-informed decision making that goes well beyond the capabilities of any single EMR—including comprehensive patient data from more than 300 sources in DOS and integrated claims and clinical data.

Grow your ecosystem.

Seamless integration with Health Catalyst ecosystem of workflow and analytic tools.

Advanced starter populations and algorithms built with integrated claims and clinical data.

A growing list of pre-defined content, including over 6,000 value sets, 21 predefined chronic condition registries, ED utilization (integrated claims and clinical data), transition of care, and predictive risk models that organizations can mix and match to identify populations ready for population health interventions.
