Effective Solutions for the Healthcare System
The Affordable Care Act and the push towards Accountable Care have placed new challenges on Health Care organizations to operate more effectively, deliver measurable results in quality of care, increase transparency, and in many cases, change the very nature of how work is done. To add to that complexity, this will affect hospitals, ambulatory clinics, and physician practices in distinct ways. These new changes have already begun to reshape the entire healthcare system, creating new opportunities for progress as well as unforeseen challenges to the whole industry.
Strategically, many health care organizations are merging or acquiring to leverage resources, cut costs and meet Meaningful Use standards. In the wake of these transactions, there is often left a hodgepodge of business systems from each operation that aren’t integrated, with duplicate data and functional silos of disconnected information. Problems range from challenges with EMR system data to lack of revenue cycle commonality to smaller, discreet system variances.
At i3solutions, we specialize in bridging these disconnects, tying systems together through a common interface, eliminating redundancies and input errors, and providing a global view of health care operations for the total enterprise. This includes data visualization dashboards, reporting functions and system monitoring so that the merging of business units happens rapidly and effectively, saving tens or of thousands of dollars in the process.
Patient Experience Brief
Federal and Private Sector Health Care systems are being driven toward truly Accountable Care Organizations, yet according to many patients, quality of care has never been poorer. Increased demand for services, multiple provider points of access to care, and non-interoperable electronic health records all put a strain on hospitals and physicians practices alike to maintain and improve the patient experience. To the patient, every visit can seem like the first. Long lines at the doctor’s office, repetitive questions, incorrect prescriptions and costly, redundant tests creates an unhappy patient population.
Introducing the i3solutions Patient Experience Brief, a single-sheet summary of the patient’s total picture given to the physician before the interaction with the patient begins. The Brief is created from the synopsis of electronic intake information and relevant information from the EHR based on what’s important today, not from the last visit. Relevant diagnostics and medication history, allergic reactions, and patient outcomes for today’s visit provide the attending physician with a crystal picture of required patient care for every visit.
The results? Faster care. Better quality. Lower costs. Happier patients.
Health Care Data Mining
Accountable Care Organization (ACO) strategies require providers to look at the revenue cycle with a fresh set of eyes, as the fee-for-service model transitions to a quality of care method of payment.
You’re sitting on vast quantities of data about the business, but in many cases, may not be able to extract it and present it in meaningful ways so that better decisions are made that produce measurable results. The same challenge applies to population health and the ability to identify high-risk patient populations for preventative care.
i3solutions provides Business Intelligence (BI) analytics tools, data extractions and performance dashboards that are user-customizable, to allow health care leaders to gain a rich understanding of their businesses and their patient populations, make informed decisions, and track and report on the results during the ACO transformation.
