Population Health Analytics Deliver Insights That Enable Value-Based
IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 6, 2018--
NextGen Healthcare, Inc. (NASDAQ:NXGN), the leading provider of
ambulatory-only healthcare technology solutions, today announced the
availability of Quality/Cost Fusion, a new Population Health analytics
capability that enables healthcare organizations to measure the true
value of care delivered to their patients.
To date, reporting has been focused either on the quality of care or the
cost of care with no ability to create a “fused” view. Quality/Cost
Fusion measures “value,” which is the risk adjusted summation of cost
and quality. By combining clinical and adjudicated claims data, the tool
helps providers successfully transition to value-based care. It also
helps identify best practices that can be disseminated across an
organization, while at the same time identifying providers that might
benefit from additional training and support.
“Our goal is to deliver high-value care at affordable costs for every
patient in our practice,” stated Dr. Verlin Janzen, Chief Medical
Officer, Medical Informatics and Population Health for Hutchinson
Clinic. “Quality/Cost Fusion has empowered us to see the full picture.
It allows our physicians to objectively answer the question, ‘Am I
creating more value for my patient?’ Our medical and financial leaders
frequently share data with our providers to address this question. These
analytics will be transformational.”
The Quality/Cost Fusion capabilities are part of the NextGen®Population Health platform, a modular, cloud-based solution that draws
on multiple data sources such as clinical, HIE, financial, adjudicated
claims, and patient-derived data to create actionable insights presented
and integrated at the point of care. These insights are essential for
health care organizations transitioning from “volume” to “value” in an
increasingly risk-laden environment.
“Healthcare organizations need to invest in insight platforms and
advanced analytics to deliver more effective care and consumer
engagement,” said Kate McCarthy, Senior Analyst at Forrester Research.
“Value-based care is ultimately about getting patients the right care,
at the right time, in the right setting, to deliver high-quality,
“Physicians often voice their fatigue with over-measurement.
Cost/Quality Fusion provides rich insights with elegant, focused metrics
which physicians find very appealing,” said Dr. Betty Rabinowitz, Chief
Medical Officer for NextGen Healthcare.
