Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 01, 2012
Wellcentive, an industry leader in population health management and analytics solutions, announces the release of the Proactive Data Quality tool within its Data Manager module.
Data Manager is a module within the Wellcentive Advance™ platform that allows healthcare organizations to monitor and manage multiple data interfaces and exchanges. An easy-to-use data management dashboard delivers real-time visibility into message transmissions, interface errors, and clinical mappings. Users can easily share this information with their interfacing partners, for community-driven data management.
The new version of Data Manager includes proprietary technology that enables users to be more proactive in addressing data quality issues. Wellcentive Proactive Data Quality functionality notifies users proactively about data quality issues so they can address them more quickly and easily. For example, if an inbound or outbound data feed is inactive for an abnormal amount of time, or if the error count exceeds a statistically critical threshold, the data quality manager will be notified. Additionally, enterprise and practice level insights will be available via data quality reports cards. As a result, the organization and the community gain confidence in the quality and integrity of the data being used to manage the health of its patient population and measure the performance of its providers.
Said Kirk Elder, Wellcentive Chief Technology Officer, "Having a strong data management capability is critical to provider organization success. If your data quality is suspect, provider engagement in your clinical quality improvement initiatives can be negatively impacted. Worse, if you are contracting based on what your data tells you, data quality can make the difference between profit and loss. For these reasons, Wellcentive is committed to continued investments in advanced data quality tools."
The new functionality makes Wellcentive Advance the first population health management solution that places a layer of intelligence on top of data and generates timely alerts. This enables organizations to customize rules for their data to ensure the integrity of the information they analyze. Providers benefit from the confidence of knowing that the data they use to base decisions is accurate. The result—better decisions and avoidance of discrepancies discovered after a decision has been made.
Added Mason Beard, VP Product Strategy, “We believe responsible population health management starts with data integrity. Historically, providers have been skeptical of the data being used for quality improvement initiatives and more recently, data employed for provider comparison. Unless an organization has a technology that helps monitor and manage their data quality, it will be an uphill battle getting the providers engaged in their quality initiatives.”
