The Touchstone analytics application is the next generation in benchmarking, opportunity analysis, and prioritization. Unlike antiquated benchmarking technologies with a narrow focus on the inpatient setting, Touchstone focuses on the full continuum of care—and surfaces machine learning-powered recommendations in an intelligent user interface.
“With Touchstone we’re able to get to the ‘why’ not just the ‘what’ and to get there in real-time without hours of manual work. It’s faster, easier access to data to improve decisions.”
Proactively recommends opportunities for improvement
Uses AI to proactively recommend, quantify, and prioritize improvement opportunities. Users no longer have to sift through hundreds of benchmarks to find opportunities. Like Netflix, recommendations improve over time based on user interest (e.g., surgical services, labor and delivery, etc.).
Offers intelligent direction
Intelligent, intuitive user interface makes it quick and easy for users to explore the factors behind each improvement opportunity.
Focuses on the full continuum of care
Includes risk-adjusted benchmarks for the full continuum of care using the most granular and detailed data possible.
AI-powered opportunity analysis
Machine learning algorithms reveal improvement opportunities hidden in EMR, clinical, cost accounting, and claims data.
Seamless data extraction
Data extraction software pulls directly from the data warehouse, eliminating the manual file creation burden that’s common with other antiquated benchmarking technologies.
Intuitive user interface makes benchmarking available to as many people in the health system who want to use it.
