Data can help healthcare providers make higher-value care decisions that result in improved quality outcomes and reduced costs; however, the way in which the data is presented plays a key role in its effectiveness. This presentation will report on a 90-day pilot study completed at Houston Methodist that explored how presenting clinical and financial data at the point of care could impact ordering behavior and facilitate cost-effective, quality clinical decision making. Led by the health system CMIO, the pilot consisted of 145 providers and 38 pharmacists. Providers were presented with an unobtrusive tool that offers real-time, patient-specific cost and select risk data for medications, labs, and radiology studies, along with seamless access to patients’ Texas Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) reports. Providers also received context-specific alerts directly within their clinical workflow based on EHR, PMP, and clinical surveillance data. The organization was able to shift the cost curve within the 90-day mark.
