Health Care Evolved – Data-Driven Innovation

Today, the adoption and “meaningful use” of electronic health record, population health management systems, and practice transformation initiatives of years past feel like a warm-up to the ever-changing barrage of priorities created by the industry’s required transition to a new data-driven, value-based care delivery model and the merciless impact of emerging issues like opioid and substance use disorders and what seems to be the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic.    The stakes are high, timelines to value-based care readiness and delivery are short, and siloed platforms that capture and store patient-centric data across the continuum, have become the problem and not the solution stakeholders need to demonstrate measurable high-quality, whole-person care delivery.   Industry stakeholders nationwide are in desperate need of  new data-driven care delivery models where access to timely, full-spectrum business intelligence and modernized self-service data visualization are not only accessible based on end-user role and responsibility, but leveraged in a way that accelerates an organization’s ability to demonstrate both margin and mission.  

Today, industry stakeholders across the nation, including Community Health Centers (CHCs), Health Center Controlled Networks (HCCNs), Primary Care Associations (PCAs), Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), Community Integrated Networks (CINs), Health Systems, Payors/Health Plans, Community-Based Organizations (CBOs), Researchers, and others, have come to rely on our diverse team of data-driven experts and innovators and our innovative business intelligence and self-service data visualization platform (HealthEquityIQ) to help them address many of the evolving challenges they face, and  more importantly, the unprecedented emerging issues we are facing with Opioid and Substance Use Disorder (OUD/SUD) and what seems to be the overwhelming and unending COVID-19 Pandemic crisis.
