Healthix http://healthix.org a large public HIE with data on over 16 million patients includes behavioral health organizations and health plans. The system feeding provider organizations across New York City and Long Island is partnering with HBI Solutions http://hbisolutions.com. The partnership will enable HBI to offer predictive analytics and performance analysis capabilities to participant organizations.
HBI’s analytics engine will use the Healthix database to provide exchange participants with a comprehensive view of their patient populations. With patient data updated in Healthix at each encounter, HBI’s applications and risk models will be able to process real-time prediction to support care management, improve population health, and individual patient care.
The service will be able to identify patients at risk for serious health conditions. The services will also have the potential to reduce avoidable hospital admissions, duplicative diagnostics and procedures, and optimize medical encounters. On a broader scale, HBI’s software will help to assess disease prevalence, service utilization, volume trends, and outcome measures across the greater New York metro region.
“Through the use of advanced analytics, our goal is to provide our participating organizations with additional insight and information to assist in improving population health and care management efforts”, said Tom Check Healthix President and CEO.
