Audacious Inquiry (Ai) is a health information technology and policy company that is making healthcare more connected. We facilitate the exchange of health information to deliver care coordination solutions. Our software is designed to be efficient and cost-effective, our nationally-recognized team-members provide tactful strategic consulting, and our services rethink how health information is shared, managed, leveraged, and protected.
Whether it is geographic, demographic, or within an organization’s patient panel, we have experience analyzing and reporting on health trends within patient populations. These analyses provide a powerful foundation for addressing population health and targeting initiatives to improve healthcare outcomes.
Utilization and Financial Analytics
It is not cheap for hospitals to operate, which is why some hospital leaders are turning to their HIO’s to provide analytics that shine light on utilization patterns. When capturing cost savings by identifying preventable services, it is a win-win for both the hospitals and patients.
Readmissions are increasingly a critical focus for quality improvement and cost reduction initiatives. We have extensive experience identifying and reporting on readmissions across the entire healthcare ecosystem.
Care Management Effectiveness
The outcomes of care management aren’t always straightforward and easy to understand. An effective baseline is key to understanding effectiveness. Our analytics team has built solutions that track patient and provider metrics pre-engagement and post-engagement so that outcomes can be compared on a case by case basis.
Areas of effective utilization can be illustrated through real-time interactive charts and graphs, offering a unique perspective on trends and outliers. While each hospital captures their own set of patient data, the full picture of how resources are leveraged comes from information gathered across multiple data sources. An example of this would be a dynamic, automated, interactive dashboard that provides all of the metrics an executive would need to understand their hospital’s performance at a single glance.
