Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence
Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence are the future of healthcare and central to HealthEC’s industry-leading innovation.
Combining healthcare data, analytics, and advanced algorithms developed by the world’s top data scientists, we are finding hidden patterns across the healthcare spectrum, applying new interventions based on these discoveries, and making transformative gains in improving patient outcomes.
We expect to unveil a solution in 2020 that targets factors that influence hospital readmissions for diabetic patients and predicts the likelihood of future patient readmissions. With preliminary results showing the solution being more than 90 percent accurate, we are very enthusiastic about its future success.
HealthEC envisions this work as a step toward bringing about revolutionary changes in current healthcare practices and delivery methods in general.
Transformative changes in healthcare practice and delivery are beginning to take place as a result of the growing role of machine learning and artificial intelligence – and HealthEC will continue to provide leadership in these categories over the long term.
What Our Clients Are Saying
Our reason for bringing on the HealthEC product is to truly integrate data from multiple sources and create a comprehensive view of the drivers of quality and cost. As we try to understand the total cost of care, we need data so that we understand which services were sought for outside of our hospital, and getting the data in a format that we can understand is key to understanding our total cost of care. We had large chunks of data that were missing from our clinical record, and by bringing together the claims data with data from the state health exchange, we have the full picture. HealthEC's strengths are identifying variability that drives cost and identifying the sources of that variability down to the drug, physician, site, or diagnosis. The HealthEC system allows me to identify where we need to make changes.VP/Executive – December 2021
HealthEC gives us a medical chart on steroids. It saves our records and saves the patient medical documentation in the cloud, and we can also schedule transportation from the system. We can use it to connect to our transportation department when people have outside appointments and they need to request transportation. We have a link that sends a daily copy of the medication administration record and certain charts. It does more than people would think it does. I wish that we had had a system like this years ago back when we had little black appointment books. I would have loved that. Now everything is in a system, and a patient's records are truly private.Analyst/Coordinator – November 2021
The system is amazing. We had a couple of providers who were still doing everything on paper, and when it came to doing GPRO and MIPS, rather than sending an inexperienced chart chaser, I went in with information preloaded on my laptop. The vendor preloaded their technology front end, and that was superb because it taught me how to do things. All of my questions were in the system, and all of the measures existed in drop-down menus. Our system populated the dashboard at HealthEC's main office in real-time, so even before I left the facility, I could quickly call HealthEC and ask whether I was done. Then HealthEC would look at the portal and tell me whether I missed something. It was really tremendous because everything was done in real time. I am not a high-tech person, so if someone like me can figure out the system, then anybody can figure it out. When we have had discussions with HealthEC regarding things that we need to do or identify, they have done those things. I have found absolutely nothing that HealthEC is not capable of doing.VP/Other Executive – November 2021
I always recommend HealthEC to others. Almost every time someone asks who they could partner with to demonstrate how to use data to improve quality outcomes, HealthEC is my number one referral.CEO/President - October 2021
The product is part of our long-term plans because we have a continuing need for an application that allows us to look at utilization based on claims. HealthEC’s product is the only software I have seen that performs well in terms of showing us claims data. The product has a huge reporting capacity for utilization and claims data. We can tell that HealthEC knows claims data. They have several different ways to look at utilization that are important for the work that we are trying to do. We continually need data to help us understand the populations and the variations we are dealing with. The MCOs in the Medicaid space have shifted and continue to shift. We are looking at contracting with MCOs, and we have accumulated data over the years, so we have a robust history. If patients move from one MCO to another, the MCO has some limited information about the beneficiary, but we have all the information because we have seen the patients go from different MCOs while staying with the same provider. Patients’ insurance providers may change, so having data has been helpful.CTO - October 2021
As we progressed with our shared savings program and got closer and closer to success, we realized that we needed an analytics tool that could help us improve. We were introduced to HealthEC by a respected peer, and we figured that HealthEC would be a safe bet for what we needed. We looked at their product and found that it was definitely robust. HealthEC has a background with strong analytics for shared savings. We needed a platform that could take our data and show us the patients that we needed to spend more time with so that we could be more efficient in how we spent our time. We really liked HealthEC's platform, and the vendor explained to us how we would use it. Its price point was very attractive, and it offered us what we needed. The person that we talked to from HealthEC was very knowledgeable, kind, and available.CMIO - September 2021
