Webinar Recap: ProHealth Improves in Population Health Management

On Wednesday, ProHealth Care and Perficient teamed up to present a session describing how the healthcare system implemented Epic’s Cogito data warehouse to deliver clinically integrated insights.
During the webinar, Christine Bessler, CIO and VP of Information Technology at ProHealth Care, described the organization’s innovative approach to population health management. Why innovative? Well, for starters, ProHealth Care is the first to use Epic’s Cogito data warehouse in conjunction with the Microsoft BI stack to manage population health. In addition, the healthcare system is the first to use Cogito in a production environment. This has resulted in physicians being able to easily identify gaps in care, and also having access to analytics tools that enhance preventative care and improve chronic disease management.
Christine went on to explain the ProHealth Care journey, including key objectives, the various challenges encountered (from business to clinical to technology) and ProHealth Care’s strategy. She also discussed key requirements including ACO requirements, analytical needs, and how and why they made the platform choice that they did. Of course, she covered the actual solution and the business value derived.
Next, Juliet Silver, Healthcare Strategic Advisory Services Director at Perficient, showed attendees how the BI program, data governance, and the Business Intelligence Competency Center (BICC) was operationalized.
