Improving Patient Care with Cognitive Solutions
Our client is a leading not-for-profit health care system and one of the largest community-based health systems in the state of Florida.
CRITICAL CARE DATA WAS INACCESSIBLE
One of our client’s goals is to provide the best care management recommendations and care plans for its moderate to high-risk patients.
To achieve this aim, the Care Management team sought a more efficient method of identifying patients with a primary or secondary diagnosis of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) upon admission, so that more time could be allocated to care transitions, the development of care plans for COPD patients, and interacting with patients.
In order to provide enhanced patient care, it was critical that our client have an efficient method to surface patients that matched their target COPD profile.Unfortunately, extracting this data was a time-intensive manual effort, as it was locked in unstructured data such as clinician notes and required thorough manual chart review by the Care Management team.
