Health Catalyst Launches Value Optimizer - A New Approach to Managing Risk and Achieving Profitability in Population Health
SALT LAKE CITY, July 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Health Catalyst, Inc. ("Health Catalyst,") (Nasdaq: HCAT), a leading provider of data and analytics technology and services to healthcare organizations, today announced the launch of Value Optimizer™, a new population health solution that quickly identifies highly valuable opportunities for value-based care (VBC) performance improvement.
VBC payment models have become increasingly common as healthcare organizations seek a better approach to managing risk and achieving profitability in population health. But, while many healthcare organizations have relied on population health tools to support their VBC payment models and better understand their populations, many existing products lack the full-service data and insight capabilities to empower population health leaders optimize their VBC strategy.
Traditional population health offerings provide only black-box logic and groupers, while EHRs lack the ability to deliver granular-level revenue and utilization information about specific populations—critical information leaders need to compare the total cost of care with performance benchmarks across the care continuum. Further, the lack of data integration capabilities from these traditional tools results in partial data sets and an incomplete view of populations. It's time for leaders to reject substandard population health results.
"Health systems are desperate to curb the rising cost of healthcare, but not at the expense of patient car and quality. It is an issue that has only been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic," said Darian Allen, SVP and General Manager, Population Health at Health Catalyst. "Value Optimizer is a full-service technology solution capable of meeting the challenge by increasing visibility into health system performance and understanding of value base care agreements. Healthcare organizations are empowered with the insight and confidence needed to deliver the best care to every patient."
"Value Optimizer allows us to uncover opportunities quickly and easily without building a data set to see the likely impact. We can quickly drill down into the data and recommend potential interventions," said Rich Balbach, Director, Clinical and Business Intelligence, Health Alliance Medical Plans. Health Alliance is part of the Carle Health system.
With Value Optimizer healthcare leaders can maximize every opportunity in their value-based agreements. Features include the following:
