In a closed loop electrical system such as home heating, continuous data capture by a thermostat is used to modify the system’s behavior by turning the furnace on or off to maintain a comfortable temperature. Closed loop population health management applies the same basic principle to patient care using continuous data capture from a health information network. Patient populations are dynamic; a single new test result, emergency department visit, or prescription may move an individual patient into a population of concern. Effective population health management requires comprehensive, clinical records from the entire care team along with dynamic population models and real time notifications to providers.

In this webinar, InterSystems Vice President, Joseph DeSantis, will share how capturing interoperable data and applying critical analytics can serve as the catalyst to this closed loop approach. Gary Christensen, InterSystems General Manager, and former Chief Operating Officer and Chief Information Officer for the Rhode Island Quality Institute (RIQI), will share case examples of how RIQI leveraged the Rhode Island CurrentCare Health Information Exchange for population health improvement.

During this webinar, you’ll learn:

-The architectural imperatives for effective population health management
-The role of the information exchange as an “innovation factory” for population health management
-Incremental approaches to implementing closed loop population health management
