Conway, NH (PRWEB) October 04, 2016 -- Rapid Insight, a leader in predictive analytics and data blending solutions, is sponsoring a webinar featuring the innovative work of Michael Johnson, PhD, an Analytics Specialist for Decision Support at St. Charles Health System. Always a data driven organization, St. Charles has recently taken a leadership position in using predictive analytics to inform patient policy and protocols with great results. The webinar will discuss the path that St. Charles has followed to build predictive models over a very short period of time. The models are focused on readmission risk and likelihood of exceeding standard length of stay.
“The work that Dr. Johnson and St. Charles has been doing shows how committed they are to their vision of ‘Creating America’s healthiest community Together,’” noted Paul Kirsch, Marketing Manager for Rapid Insight.
Kaiser Health News estimates that in the next year, CMS will withhold $528 million in payments via their Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program. This amounts to a $100 million increase over the 2016 Fiscal Year withholding amounts. As a result of this forecast, the focus on how technology can help support patient care is becoming more important than ever.
