Value-Based Care and Analytics

Healthcare systems that made creating high-quality and value-based care a top priority are reaping the benefits. Health IT Analytics brought this news to our attention in their article, “Predictive Analytics Helps Providers Address Total Cost of Care.”

Predictive analytics can support population health management, financial success, and better outcomes across the value-based care continuum.

As healthcare organizations develop more sophisticated big data analytics capabilities, they are beginning to move from basic descriptive analytics towards the realm of predictive insights.

Predictive analytics can enhance indexing programs such as ICD Tagger and improve EHR systems by tagging and cross-checking records to increase the accuracy of their data, and saving lives.
