Description

University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (UTSW) has driven significant improvements in cost and quality by empowering physicians and clinicians with highly-actionable patient data. This has been achieved through the deployment of local clinical population management units (Pods). Supported by technology and customized patient data reports, Pods work in a collaborative environment to ensure organized patient care management. This presentation will examine the technology and data governance model implemented by UTSW, outline the Pod concept, and explore how physician education and engagement has mobilized accountable care. It will outline steps for organizing patient data, augmented by insights from Verscend Technologies on analytical approaches to make data actionable across any population and will detail the development of focused clinical programs based on data. Outcomes and lessons learned will also be detailed, including practical steps that other organizations can utilize across their populations.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Classify steps used to develop the ACO technology platform and clinical infrastructure
  • Design the components of the population management teams used to engage physicians
  • Summarize the patient data and reporting metrics used to guide clinical interventions
  • Describe continuous process improvement techniques to develop data-driven action plans
