As payment reform shifts responsibility to providers, clinical data is taking on a new level of importance and can play a key role in helping providers proactively manage care for the purpose of reducing preventable readmissions and facilitating transitions of care. By enabling the aggregation of clinical data from disparate health systems, such as through the formation of an accountable care organization, providers can unlock opportunities to predict patient behavior and risk.
During this webinar, you will hear how the Indiana Health Information Exchange leverages predictive analytics to enable physicians to reduce hospital readmissions, choose optimal therapies, reduce redundant testing, and avoid drug-to-drug interactions, among other life-saving and efficiency-generating efforts. This webinar also shares an overview of how an ACO in Indiana uses predictive models to reduce costs and improve care outcomes. The speaker will also discuss how this ACO is approaching the adoption of predictive analytics, adapting care managers’ workflows, and measuring results.
