POP HEALTH FORUM: A HIMSS EVENT
Boston, MA - April 3 - 4, 2017
Partners HealthCare, one of the nation’s leading biomedical research organizations and a principal teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School, has targeted patients considered to be in the mid-level of the acuity pyramid – as these patients accounted for 57 percent of total healthcare related costs in FY 2015. In the first stage of this study, findings demonstrated that these patients have the highest potential for cost increase and confirmed the efficiency of using prevention as a strategy to avoid hospital admissions. The study is aimed to validate and measure the usefulness of a predictive analytics engine with interventions, provided by the Partners homecare team, in order to prevent avoidable hospital and ER visits for seniors.
