Where Actuate Helps Health Care Providers
For those hospitals willing to attain the Meaningful Use defined by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Incentive Programs, in order to be eligible to earn incentive payments, data quality is essential.
Hospitals have many systems, often siloed and isolated. This hinders efforts towards the “360 degree” view of patients. In addition, most providers are implementing EHR (electronic health records) that include diagnostics, procedures, tests, and personal data. Actuate BIRT integrates data from these disparate sources to deliver personalized patient analytics and insights.
Hospitals run under reduced margins and often struggle to balance the best quality of patient care with cost pressures. In addition, due to informational gaps and system inefficiencies, many health treatments never get paid. This raises price pressure on those treatments that are paid. It can be a costly system. Actuate uncovers inefficiencies and errors to improve performance and ensure adequate compensation to the provider.
Self-service, highly adaptable information provisioning for physicians can inform diagnosis and treatment. Analyzing patient populations across very large data sets can improve epidemiology practices. Ultimately, predictive analytics and visual data mining can optimize care delivery, improving post-surgery care to reduce readmissions and predicting problems with treatment compliance and aftercare down the road.
