Patient-Powered Research

  Launched with a $215 million investment in the President Obama’s 2016 Budget, the Precision Medicine Initiative will pioneer a new model of patient-powered research that promises to accelerate biomedical discoveries and provide clinicians with new tools, knowledge, and therapies to select the treatments that will work best for their patients. 

Healthcare Analytics that DRIVE Enterprise Data Warehouses #OOW14

In HIMSS14, I wrote about the Healthcare Treasure Map.  Not any treasure map, but an end to end all Clinical and Research PATIENT CENTERED Healthcare domain data model – the Enterprise Healthcare Analytics (EHA).  Colleagues refer to it as THE healthcare data model – similar to how NFL players announce their universities, “THE University of […]

Knowledge Drives Precision

In recent years, dramatic advances in molecular biology, genomics, and related technologies have resulted in greater understanding of cancer at the molecular level. It is now possible not only to identify the genetic and molecular variations in each patient’s cancer cells, but to apply the results from the tumor profile, in some circumstances, to begin […]

The “Secret Sauce” for Financial Transparency

Assembling the data needed to achieve financial transparency is both a technical and political challenge. My recent BLOG In Managing Finance at Hospitals, the Proof is in the Data discusses this in detail. I thought I’d take a moment now to discuss some of the software that combines clinical and financial data for cost management […]

Following the Money Trail: Understanding the True Cost of Care

Following the Money Trail: Understanding the True Cost of Care

Healthcare leaders are challenged to understand the true costs associated with providing care. If you ask caregivers to determine their current workflow, they don’t really know where the patient and family go before or after each step of their care so the total care pathway is not in their purview. This is a well-known challenge […]

Combining Clinical and Financial Data for Cost Management

Terie McClintock, Director at Perficient, wrote an interesting blog post about the importance of merging clinical and financial data. Assembling this data requires a robust technical architecture that easily stores the data relationships with contextual integrity along with the ability to resolve patient or person identity. Once the data is assembled, leaders of the organization […]

ALIGN CLINICAL, QUALITY AND FINANCIAL ANALYTICS TO ENABLE VALUE-BASED CARE

In Managing Finance at Hospitals, the Proof is in the Data

Assembling data is both a technical and political challenge. I’ve been involved with multiple hospitals where the finance and clinical teams never really collaborate and therefore the lenses put on either domain is not terribly realistic. Truly merging and using the data requires clinical and financial leaders to establish trust and shared goals that promote […]

The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Enterprise Warehouses: The gift that keeps on giving

I read a blog post recently with references to Oracle’s Marc Perlman @marcdperlman speaking about how Healthcare entities are nearing the timeframe where they can reap the benefits of implementing electronic health records. To quote Marc, “As healthcare providers look to establish enterprise data warehouses, they should begin with a specific project that hinges on […]

The role of a Data Warehouse in the Accountable Care Organization

I read an article recently about the role of analytics within an Accountable Care Organization.  This article discussed the need for a longitudinal view of patients using data from the Electronic Medical Record (EMR).  Healthcare providers are making better data decisions through uses of EMR technology, but there is more than a “query” involved! Now […]

Rigor and Quality Analysis – it’s time for precision

By Lesli Adams, MPA Director, Oracle Healthcare Business Intelligence   In a recent blog, I wrote about parallel industries; Manufacturing, Airline, and Healthcare and the need to get to a Balance Sheet of Clinical Results for the Healthcare Industry.  With EMR Adoption Rates increasing year over year, HIMSS is reporting for the Final 2012 reporting […]
