Physicians are under increasing cost pressure from commercial health insurers and government payers. Physician groups that wish to remain independent must embrace the changes associated with the shift to value-based care, adopt new technologies to reduce and streamline costs, and demonstrate ongoing quality improvement.
Acuitas Health is a population health services organization that empowers physicians to make a successful transition to a value-based care delivery system. While the organization has the requisite expertise to provide these services to providers of care, Acuitas Health lacked the timely, actionable data required to effectively engage providers in improvement efforts.
Acuitas Health implemented the Health Catalyst® Data Operating System (DOS™) to support the development of practice intelligence profiles—comprehensive views of partner practices used by the practice intelligence team to increase provider engagement and strengthen improvement efforts.
As a result of the DOS implementation, Acuitas Health improved overall data quality to achieve significant results:
- Substantial increase in provider engagement.
- 90 percent improvement in using data to identify improvement opportunities.
- Provider- and practice-specific data, which would have previously taken months to compile, is now available daily.
