Care Mgmt: Patient StratificationPatient population stratification and identification for enrollment in care management programs.
|Team:||Care Management||Version:||Replaced by Population Builder: Stratification|
This application has been replaced by Population Builder: Stratification module for new deployments. Existing clients should contact your Health Catalyst representative.
The Patient Stratification Software Application integrates current cost trends, chronic conditions, as well as social determinant risk models and other sources, to identify the individuals most likely to benefit from proactive care management programs. Users can build and analyze different stratification algorithms based on proven risk models and resource utilization to identify the most important candidates for intervention through complex care management, chronic condition management, readmission prevention or other programs.
Background & Problem Summary
Health organizations too often lack visibility into complete, longitudinal patient or member data that will help them manage their populations. Those that do attempt to identify high risk individuals spend enormous time and valuable resources, often looking at fragmented source data that doesn’t provide a holistic view of individual risk. Some of the key data elements which are often missing include: identification of individuals with the highest risk for care using multiple models, comparing in-network and out-of-network claims, grouping or analyzing care programs, encounter details, diagnosis codes, providers, age cohorts, and zip codes.
Patient population stratification and identification for enrollment in care management programs.
Benefits and Features
- Dynamic stratification algorithm creation to enable targeting individuals for a variety of care programs
- Analyze cohort or patient/member-specific attributes
- Supports complex attribution to the individual’s PCP via integration with Attribution Modeler or inclusion of client-provided logic.
- Complex patient filtering capabilities to create precise cohort registries
- Automates patient list management with the care management staff for improved intake processing
- Care Management teams and leaders
- ACO and population health leaders and analysts
Care Manager wants to identify
- the top 5% of individuals who are high risk, high cost, on multiple medications and with high acuity conditions to refer to a complex care management program.
- Individuals for chronic care management programs
- Individuals to refer to readmission reduction programs
