Maximizing Investments in Data Analytics and Infrastructure
In light of Mount Carmel Health Partners’ remarkable growth, investments in infrastructure and data analytics are key to our sustained success. To that end, we’ve made a number of investments in technology to support our members and to improve the quality and efficiency of care and promote an evidence-based, outcomes-driven approach to care.
- CareEvolution. An internal intelligence tool that allows us to share clinical information for attribution, population utilization, risk score, high-risk patients, gaps-in-care reporting and trending in a secure, reliable, and incremental manner.
- Verisk Health Enterprise Analytics. An internal tool used to assist in the management of program performance, population health, enterprise reporting, budgeting, network efficiency, risk contracting and ACO initiatives.
- Quality Connect. An integrated web portal that gives our physicians and their practice staff members tools and reporting capabilities to better and more easily manage their patients’ care, reach key quality metrics and maximize incentive payments.
- Crimson Medical Referrals. A web-based workflow platform for physicians that facilitates the referral process and keeps care within the network (out-of-network referrals have decreased for our employed medical group practices since its implementation).
- CACTUS Credentialing Database. An internal administrative tool that stores credentialing and recredentialing data, automates some of the credentialing processes, and helps ensure that member providers are current with board certifications and licensures.
- The McKesson Population Manager (formerly MedVentive). An electronic tool that collects, analyzes and aggregates claims data from physicians, hospitals, laboratories, pharmacies, and other healthcare providers in order to manage populations, track individual patients, and provide drill-down access to data on clinical events and lab results.
- Mount Carmel Provider App. A secure, HIPAA-compliant mobile app (developed by a Health Partners member physician) that allows users to send secure messages, including images, to other providers; makes referrals easy by allowing users to search for providers by name, specialty, group, or campus location; and gives users easy access to the Health Partners’ clinical guidelines.
- Data Driven Delivery Systems (DDDS). A program that assists providers in capturing chronic conditions, documenting with more specificity, and closing gaps identified by the Stars program to better enable physician collaboration while driving cost savings.
