The healthcare landscape is primed for a shift to value-based care and it’s becoming increasingly important to ensure patients receive the recommended treatment they need for their medical conditions. When care provided does not meet the recommended best practice, it can result in gaps in care, leaving the door open to higher costs, missed diagnoses, and unnecessary resource utilization. But identifying gaps in care is often easier said than done due to barriers like inconsistent care coordination, lack of usable and insightful data, and patients not being actively engaged in their own healthcare plans.
With HealtheRegistriesSM, we help your organization learn what care gaps exist in individuals, and across your population as a whole. HealtheRegistries uses data gathered from multiple sources, including electronic health record and payor data, to create a single, living source of truth to help providers better identify gaps in care and measure quality performance. With a more comprehensive, bird’s-eye view of a patient and population’s health, organizations are positioned to better pinpoint care trends, identify at-risk patients, connect patients with appropriate providers, and measure and monitor people throughout their health journey.
Using registries and scorecards, providers can close gaps in care for chronic disease management. One example is managing diabetes:
What is this person’s latest health and care data?
According to this person’s health and care data, is the patient a diabetic or hypertensive?
Who is the person’s primary care provider?
If this person is a diabetic, have they had a foot exam or A1C test?
Is the patient’s A1C being managed?
What should a clinician focus on for this person or population?
Leave missing care information, outdated analytics, and disjointed data in the rearview. Instead, tap into a single source of truth that can help empower your organization and providers to make more-informed care decisions for your patients and populations.
"With HealtheRegistries℠ we can deliver near-real-time intelligence to our providers to address care gaps. We can motivate our providers by being transparent with performance data and help them along in the journey to improved patient care quality."
