A decade ago, electronic health records (EHRs) were touted as key to increasing of quality care. Today, providers are using data from patient records to improve quality outcomes through their care management programs. SwedishAmerican Medical Group (SAMG), part of the Rockford, Ill.-based SwedishAmerican Health System, has applied analytics to its EHR data for care management insights for four years. Combining multiple types of clinical data from the system's health records has helped clinicians identify and stratify chronically ill patients. Attendees at this presentation will learn how SAMG applied analytics to their EHR data to improve quality of care and how they have used data and analytics to prevent hospitalizations among high-risk patients.
