KHS will build and maintain a data warehouse for your organization or ACO. The data warehouse includes clinical data from your members’ EHR systems or HIE as well as claims data and other sources of client data. The data is normalized and populated into a standard data architecture that can be used to create custom reports, registries and benchmarking.
KHS places high priority on ensuring data is securely stored in the KHS data warehouses. KHS observes HIPAA rules and regulations for all services provided and respects your expressed data sharing preferences. Reports are delivered securely through DIRECT messaging. With consent, KHS will share cohort data, allowing for organizations to realize the benefit of increased care coordination across facilities.
KHS can report on all measures available in your data warehouse at the physician level, organization level, community level or county level. KHS creates a registry or collection of records (data mart) based upon flexible criteria. This could include diagnosis, procedures, allergies, immunizations, medications, labs, reports, encounter information and provider care summaries. This information can be integrated into physician or organization level reports, ACO measure reports, HEDIS reports and quality reports such as PQRS.
Special client features can include custom reports, dashboards and data visualizations to provide quality population analytics in an actionable format.
KHS can provide quality dashboards for individual physicians and practices based upon preventative care/wellness metrics to encourage analysis of quality indicators and assist in reporting requirements. KHS, in partnership with Diameter Health, has received National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) certification for 21 Electronic Clinical Quality Measures (eCQMs) for 2017. eCQMs are indicators of the quality of care provided to a patient, including measures that reflect management of chronic diseases, preventive care received, use of appropriate medications and overall cost of care reductions. These indicators are important reporting mechanisms in the new era of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' Quality Payment Programs initiated in 2017.
The data stored in your data warehouse can be used to identify high risk patients in a defined region of your healthcare system as well as patterns of healthcare utilization. Aggregate and de-identified data is used for GIS (geographic information system) mapping. Hotspotting is a valuable reporting measure which can assist you with timely, targeted intervention activities to assist with public and population health management.
KHS provides a wide variety of population health reports based upon the use case and your noted specifications. KHS can aggregate your data according to zip codes for population based reporting. This information is then geo-coded so that a risk picture can be developed.
KHS can develop patient or disease specific registries for members across all of the participating organizations.
Aggregate data from your participating facilities is compiled in your data warehouse. The KHS analytics team can produce monthly reports using conditional statements to stratify the patient population. High, moderate and low risk models can be defined and configured based upon your specifications.
KHS can also use the CDC chronic disease indicators to generate reports and registries of patients most at risk for chronic disease including those who could benefit the most from early intervention.
KHS can create customizable dashboards which will allow you to easily view the specific performance measures and patient outcomes within your organization. Dashboards and reports are MS Excel based and include advanced analytics capabilities based on the need as defined by you.
