Rising health care expenditures and shrinking margins, in addition to the recent pause on elective procedures due to COVID-19, has put cost containment at the forefront of many healthcare organizations’ strategies. Advocate Aurora Health has turned to data to help control costs while maintaining quality across its 1.3M value-based lives spanning its 400-mile network.
In this August 20 Scottsdale Institute teleconference, Dr. Carrie Nelson, CMO & System VP, Population Health and Health Outcomes discusses how Advocate Aurora Health is going beyond the information in its EHR to manage episodic care, and predict readmission risk and acute utilization, along with utilizing health equity data to identify appropriate community programs. Dr. Nelson speaks to the macro- and micro-level role of data in building a unified data architecture that’s better for patients, providers, payers and the community. The teleconference concludes with open discussion and questions.
