patient engagement analytics

Patient Engagement Analytics Helped an Intelligent Screening Solutions Provider to Improve Conversion Rate and Reduce Missed Appointments

With the development of information technology, the concept of smart healthcare has gradually evolved. Smart healthcare uses the new generation of advanced technology including the internet of things (loT), big data, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence, to transform the traditional medical system in an all-round way, making healthcare more efficient, more convenient, and more personalized. Amid this growth, the diagnostics and screening solutions segment has emerged as a prominent game changer in healthcare. However, despite differences in governing policies, diagnostics and screening solutions providers around the globe face common challenges. Patients now expect an equal level of consumer engagement that they witness from other industries, hence healthcare organizations are engaging patients in new and modern ways.

About the Client

The client is an intelligent screening solutions provider that develops solutions to aid diagnosis through AI-powered analysis of visual medical data.

Business Challenge

This intelligent screening provider experiences close to a million clinic visits and nearly two million calls annually, due to many such reasons successfully interacting with patients has always been a priority for them. The organization previously never embraced automation to manage appointment-related tasks and outreaches. The screening solution provider needed a solution that would allow them to achieve better patient satisfaction, outreach, drive engagement, improve health outcomes and most importantly improve patient conversion rate.  To achieve these goals with a solution that was scalable and data-driven, the organization approached Quantzig.

Value Delivered

Previously the client hadn’t leveraged analytics and automation for patient outreach, patient engagement and patient satisfaction. Instead they relied on conventional ways of outreach such as phone calls and text messages and issues such as a call drop, or network problems were giving rise to data full of errors and it was also a time-consuming process. Whether or not the patient answered the call, agents still had to look up the patient’s information and make notations of the outcome of the call. This was an extremely time-consuming process. After collaborating with Quantzig the client experienced significant improvements in patient conversion rates. With better, automated strategies to analyze patient needs, the screening solution provider was able to generate patient engagement data without any error and at a much lower cost. Quantzig’s patient engagement analytics solutions also helped them:

  • Achieve a 20% reduction in missed appointment rates
  • Enhanced patient engagement rates
  • Improve patient conversion rate by 30%

Patient Readmission Analytics

Patient Readmission Analytics Helps a Healthcare Organization Reduce Readmission Rates by Identifying High Risk Cohorts

About the Client

The client is a well-known healthcare services provider based out of Belgium.

Patient Readmission Analytics Engagement Summary

Patient Readmission Analytics

Modern patient journey analytics tools and advanced predictive models can help you enhance patient care. Wonder how? Get in touch with our experts for detailed insights

Business Challenge

Recent changes in healthcare systems across the globe have prompted healthcare organizations to redesign their workflows to better manage patients and avoid government penalties. In an effort to do so, healthcare service providers are now focusing on reducing patient readmission rates by implementing analytics in their organizational workflows. The predictive models used by the client, in this case, were isolated along the care continuum focusing only on certain silos and not the entire healthcare workflow. They approached Quantzig, looking to leverage patient readmission analytics to fully integrate predictive models into their workflows and devise readmission reduction strategies to drive impactful transformations.

By integrating patient readmission analytics into their workflow, the healthcare services provider wanted to achieve four main goals centered around reducing patient readmissions, including:

  • Improve the performance of predictive models
  • Predict and identify high-risk patient cohorts
  • Obtain near real-time insights using an automated, easy-to-understand, cross-continuum tool
  • Recommend actions in the best interest of the patients

Solution Offered

Implementing a practical predictive model for analyzing high-risk patient groups is not an easy task given the complexity of the healthcare ecosystem. Even before a healthcare organization can do so, they must develop a comprehensive picture of the patient’s journey and analyze patient data on a granular level. Adopting such an approach will help healthcare service providers gain critical insights into the factors leading to a patient’s readmission.

A detailed analysis of the challenges faced by the client revealed that to reduce patient readmission rates using analytics, the client had to build and integrate a predictive analytics-driven strategy into their current workflow. To do so, our healthcare provider analytics experts devised predictive models that consider the entire patient readmission journey, as well as inputs from the whole patient care team and the patients, and leverage the capabilities of patient readmission analytics to deliver accessible, easy-to-use tools with meaningful visualizations on interactive dashboards.

Take advantage of our cutting-edge patient analytics solutions and turn your patient data into insights that help you reduce readmission rates

To understand readmissions, we adopted a comprehensive approach that leveraged patient data from readmission logs and discharge logs, including critical touchpoints in the process. The detailed breakup of the three-pronged patient care analytics approach is as outlined below:

Phase 1: Patient Data Analysis

To develop a predictive model, we gathered relevant historical patient data sets from various sources in the first phase. Our patient readmission analytics team also had to analyze data to identify inputs that could impact the target outcome. To do so, we applied advanced machine learning techniques to map the relationship between patient attributes and the target outcomes. Though different events could be predicted using such an approach, we focused our analysis on the aforementioned business priorities which are mostly around patient readmission risks.

Phase 2: Design and Development of Patient Readmission Predictive Models

The patient readmission prediction models helped the client to monitor and identify patients at a higher probability of being readmitted after an initial stay at the hospital. This helped the healthcare services provider to recommend special plans for the high-risk cohorts by identifying and categorizing the patients into similar groups.

Phase 3: Data Dashboarding and Reporting

The final phase of this patient readmission analytics engagement focused on communicating the outcomes on advanced analytics dashboards with interactive visualizations and easy to use interfaces.
