Recent economic issues caused a local community, with an approximate patient population of 40,000, to lose their jobs and experience financial hardship. Many patients hadn’t seen a primary care physician in years and used hospital emergency departments for non-emergency episodes such as headaches, gingivitis, and lower back pain. Our CIN client sought to understand resource utilization in order to provide services in the most cost-effective setting and proactively manage illness to avoid hospital admissions.
Using HealthEC’s sophisticated population health management tools integrated into physician workflows helped to identify care gaps and stratify at-risk patient populations for Medicare and commercial payer agreements. Data-driven care and action plans are supported by a longitudinal patient record with consolidated data from admissions, discharge and transfers plus social determinants of health referral platforms.
