Description

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.
