Carefx Corp., a Scottsdale, Ariz.-based provider of interoperable workflow solutions, announced today that it is collaborating with the University HealthSystem Consortium (UHC), an Oak Brook, Ill.-based alliance of academic medical centers representing approximately 90 percent of the nation’s nonprofit academic medical centers, to provide advanced business intelligence (BI) dashboards, and analytical tools. These tools will enhance UHC’s Clinical Data Base (CDB), a robust, transparent, patient-level tool with comparative performance data.
The Carefx BI dashboards were developed by a team of medical, operational, and finance leaders at Cleveland Clinic and are used throughout this UHC-member organization to enhance clinical and operational performance.
The first in the series of dashboards being made available to UHC members is the Physician Profiler Plus dashboard that allows physicians to drill-down to detailed comparisons and case-level data to measure their performance on Length of Stay (LOS), Hospital Cost, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) indicators, Readmission Rate and Mortality. The dashboard also provides chief medical officers the ability to identify variation in physician performance to improve quality and utilization which satisfies physician oversight mandates under Ongoing Professional Practice Evaluation (OPPE).
Carefx recently announced collaboration with Cleveland Clinic to market and further develop the BI dashboard technology used by the Clinic and brought to market by IntellisEPM, a start up of Cleveland Clinic Innovations. The dashboards are used to drive performance through enhanced decision making by providing views of data relevant to the clinical or executive user. The dashboards leverage a BI technology platform to help accelerate performance improvement across the health system, including financial performance, workforce management, quality and patient experience.
