POP HEALTH FORUM: A HIMSS EVENT
Boston, MA - April 3 - 4, 2017
New York City’s Services for the UnderServed (SUS) is a human services agency providing $185 million in services to individuals with disabilities, living in poverty, and facing homelessness. In 2014, it received a grant to identify care pathways that would increase quality of care for the developmentally disabled, reduce incidences of challenging behavior, and lower costs of care.
In this presentation, SUS will explain how deploying an HIT platform to collect and analyze diverse datasets enabled it to provide more effective care.
The results speak for themselves: a 15 percent reduction in caregivers per case, a 70 percent reduction of challenging behaviors within the first six months, and a 30 percent reduction in the use of psychotropic medications.
