Your data is more than just numbers. It tells a story about your patients, your staff and your organization as a whole. Analyzing this data allows healthcare providers to look at specific diseases and processes within the organization to provide feedback to staff to do their job better.
With the transformation to value-based care and new payment models now in place, your data, and the quality of it, is more critical than ever. Quality and clinical performance measures are being used for many purposes including reimbursement, penalties, accountability, outcomes, reputation, and cost reduction.
Unless you already have a well-oiled process for mining your data, analyzing it and acting on it, you will need to create a data plan. Reliable data serves as the foundation for value-based care. You need it to coordinate care, manage population health, and more.
Drowning in data?
For years healthcare providers have been struggling with not only hundreds of possible measures, but also the multiple entities to which they are required to report.
The bottom line is—many providers are drowning in their data, and they can’t keep up with quality reporting demands. Does your organization sound like any of the following?
- Drowning in all the data and juggling too many records with too little staff time?
- Struggling to keep up with quality measure specifications and reporting guidelines?
- Trying to free up clinical staff for proactive quality improvement initiatives?
- Trying to improve performance on metrics used in quality reporting and value-based purcashing?
If you answered yes to any of these situations, Primaris may be just the “lifesaver” you need.
