InterSystems HealthShare Health Insight is a robust analytics development solution that unlocks the value of shared health information for population and performance management. It brings together all of your data assets for analysis and the delivery of actionable insights when and where needed.
Healthcare is in the process of a massive transition – patient demographics, delivery models, provider relationships, technology, consumer expectations, and payment structures are all changing. To manage through this transition you need information and insight.
To appreciate the challenge, consider Medicare patients. The average Medicare patient in the US with five or more chronic conditions sees 13 doctors and fills 50 prescriptions per year; populations in other nations have similar profiles. Multiply this kind of utilization out by your entire population and you have an enormous pool of data in every imaginable format, both structured and unstructured.
Health Insight brings all this data together, organizes and normalizes it, and then delivers it in near real-time to an extensible hypercube for reporting and analysis within the HealthShare environment. That same, cleansed, comprehensive data can also be loaded into purchased or self-developed analytics applications, enterprise data warehouses, or clinical decision support solutions to enhance understanding and maximize value throughout your healthcare enterprise.
The adage, “what gets measured gets managed,” is driving the design of new quality management systems, payment mechanisms, and performance measurement programs. The result is a wealth of metrics intended to evaluate clinical outcomes, behaviors, functional status, throughput, and financial performance, all of which you need to monitor and report.
Health Insight includes a metric development and configuration environment and a starter set of healthcare measures. You can use these measures as is or as examples for developing your own. Metrics can be included in aggregate or individual scorecards, used to identify and tag population members, and used for comparative benchmarking.
Safe, coordinated care requires analytics delivered to clinicians in time to identify opportunities for action and enable interventions. This is the kind of closed-loop management that leads to reduced readmissions, improved sepsis rates, and lower per member per month costs for chronic disease populations. Health Insight makes closed-loop management possible through automated event logic and notifications configured for the issues that matter to you and your organization. It enables you to properly manage those who are sick, and encourage healthy behaviors for those who are not.
