Modern healthcare collects enormous amounts of EMR, claims and other data. Unfortunately, there is a severe shortage of outcomes data, especially outcomes data verifiably linked to a specific clinical hypothesis and intervention.
Outcomes Data Categories
Any medical evidence must be correlated with standardized outcomes measurements. They may be based on laboratory analyses, standardized standard PROMs, customized scoring algorithms, imaging, telehealth assessments or outputs from medical wearables.
Minimizing Clinical Burden
Capturing outcomes data, especially longitudinal patient data, is a major challenge for clinicians. Benchmarc™ and related processes remove this burden from the provider, while maintaining strong patient compliance, data integrity and 24/7 access.
Outcomes data are entered by physician’s assistants, laboratory technicians, patients, caregivers and practitioners. Circles accommodates the UX expectations of each, to minimize burden and errors. Moreover, whatever the source and timing of data, it remains fully auditable and integrated within the Case record.
Outcomes data of course support clinical decision-making; but they can represent far more value as well. Deeper patient engagement, articles, reimbursement, new service lines, investigator fees, influence among peers, conference travel purses and product improvement are examples.
Circles are based on capturing all possible value from outcomes data.
