Data Management Industry Overview

Data management services

The latest trend in healthcare is to use data to improve patient outcomes and quality of life – a practice known as “Applied Health Analytics”. “Data analytics” refers to the practice of aggregating large data sets and analyzing them to draw important insights and recommendations. This process is increasingly aided by new software and technology that facilitates the examination of large volumes of data to detect hidden information.

In the context of the increasingly data-reliant health care system, data management services can help derive insights on systemic wastes of resources, track individual practitioner performance, and identify people within the population that are most at risk for chronic diseases. With this information, the health system can more efficiently allocate resources to deliver individualized patient care at lower costs, improve the health of the population and maximize revenues and margin in the health care system.  

Insurance companies and healthcare providers are also working to use medical data to identify and better manage high-risk, high-cost patients. Insurance companies and self-funded organizations want to identify these patients to provide early interventions that could keep patients in better health and reduce medical costs later. Another sophisticated use of this kind of healthcare data could be to use algorithms with ICU patients to foresee who is more at risk for readmission. Medical staff can then take different, proactive measures as necessary to try to lower that risk of readmission, such as precise discharge instructions, different prescriptions, or a specific follow-up visit schedule.

We have a different approach to data and how to incorporate it into business and professional practice. The goal of all business with access to large data collections should be to harness the most relevant data and use it for optimized decision making. ClearMetrX focuses on using data-driven analytic tools to identify insights targeting three key areas where we see the potential to improve patient outcome and maximize revenue and margin for our clients:

1.       Improving medication adherence. Increasing patients’ adherence to medication treatment plans means they will be healthier, reducing costly advanced treatment claims for those patients.  Third party payors will see lower claim payments, and the physicians are rewarded with higher reimbursement undermanaged care contracts with third party payors.

2.       Improving patient engagement with their physicians. Reducing abandonment while nurturing patients to comply with their therapy through education, reminder, and medication synchronization will improve refill rates, resulting in healthier outcomes.

3.       Optimizing operational efficiency and costs.  


The data that will be provided to our physicians’ practices will help doctors to meet third party payor performance goals which will improve reimbursement payments from third party payors.
