PROVIDER COST ATTRIBUTION AND INSIGHTS

PROVIDER COST ATTRIBUTION AND INSIGHTS

IllumiCare knows your cost (not charge) of every med/lab/rad order, the ordering provider, their specialty and the acuity of the patient. We attribute costs to each responsible provider (not just to the admitting or discharging provider). And, it all happens in real-time.

What emerges from this analysis is a view of practice pattern variation among providers of the same type that drives over-utilization and higher costs. This data is directly available to you via upload into your existing Decision Support / BI system, or managers and leaders can directly interact with it in an easy-to-use tool we call Spotlight.

FROM THE MACRO TO THE MICRO VIEW

FROM THE MACRO TO THE MICRO VIEW

Spotlight answers four main questions:

  1. Who is it that drives excess cost and utilization and why?
  2. What are the biggest opportunities for improvement, and do they require a targeted or broad intervention?
  3. Who is using the IllumiCare Ribbon and how?
  4. Is our risk-adjusted cost per admission changing and why?

The answers to these questions are made accessible in a web-based tool that requires no special training. It is intended for managers and leaders to easily explore their own data. Of course, IllumiCare is a comprehensive service that includes training and guided data exploration – so you never have to feel separated from the insights that can drive operational improvements.
