Managing Populations

By managing populations, we focus on the care delivery across the general population or a group of individuals.

An important goal is to gather, normalize and analyze clinical data across a patient's many care settings that can reveal opportunities to improve the patient's health and the provider's financial outcomes. By merging clinical care with outcomes assessment, providers can help patients and insurers aggregate, exchange and analyze patient data to coordinate care and promote wellness through evidence-based decision support in clinical care.

Our offerings support data aggregation and data governance combined with business intelligence and data analytics to truly achieve the goals of managing populations. Clinical, financial and operational data need to be brought together from across the organization as well as provide actionable steps for providers via predictive analytics. Effective technologies and programs will provide real-time insights, allowing providers to identify and address any care gaps within the patient population. This will allow a healthcare organization to improve patient outcomes and cost savings.

Another goal is clinical proficiency. Possessing and analyzing this data allows providers to identify the greatest needs of the patient population. For example, most the patient population in the Middle East suffer from diabetes and hypertension, therefore using the technologies can help providers identify these problems.

Finally, another goal is better patient engagement because in order to prevent disease and maintain wellness, patients need to be proactive about making healthy choices while outside the hospital or healthcare facility.
