A Mission to Continuously Improve the Health of Its Community
ProHealth Care is a not-for-profit, community-based healthcare system that offers a full range of services, from fitness and wellness to primary care and specialty care, rehabilitation care, and home and hospice care.
UNHEALTHY DATA MANAGEMENT PRACTICES NEED EXAMINATION
Being able to easily find and capture information is critical to providing both quality patient care and maintaining the financial health of a healthcare system. ProHealth Care’s financial, operational, and claims data resided in disparate silos, making it impossible to generate a holistic view of its patients. The data domain spanned several different sources within the enterprise, leaving ProHealth with no method to aggregate this data.
ProHealth Care looked to integrate data from multiple areas including claims, billing transactions, clinical outcomes, physicians, and patient surgical histories. To do so, however, the health system needed to create an IT infrastructure that would consolidate reporting and allow physicians to evaluate and modify practice patterns. This included thorough data collection, delivery, measurement, and analysis. As an accountable care organization (ACO), ProHealth also wanted to implement a series of new metrics and reports to facilitate physician pay for performance.
