Learn how leveraging data to coordinate care can improve clinical and financial outcomes.
In today's world, healthcare provider organizations must deliver outstanding clinical outcomes and cost effective care, all while maintaining a successful business model. Does your organization have the data infrastructure – including an enterprise data warehouse and business intelligence tools – in place to help achieve these objectives?

West Monroe Partners, Rush Health and Microsoft deliver an interactive discussion on Rush Health’s success in leveraging data to coordinate care in order to improve clinical and financial outcomes within their health system.

Rush Health’s ability to analyze key patient data allowed them to maintain a long-term focus on patient health improvement, instead of just episodic care, and achieve level-3 recognition from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) as a Physician Practice Connections - Patient Centered Medical Home (PPC-PCMH). In addition, the data and tools enable Rush Health to assess how well prepared they are for an accountable care arrangement where they share savings with patients and payers. Key data includes:

  • Condition specific outreach issues
  • General patient population characteristics
  • Cohort management
  • Population and care trending
  • Overall cost profiles
