In the spirit of advancing innovation and patient improvements, more healthcare organizations work with predictive analytics to anticipate requirements and drive value.

FREMONT, CA: As healthcare organizations seek to enhance care, value, and overall patient experience, information is progressively becoming a key component in unlocking innovation and resources. Analytics is used in healthcare not only for measuring and tracking results but also for predicting them. Until now, value-based care payment models have been a significant driver of predictive healthcare analysis.

Value-based care is a new payment model which suppliers have filled with unknowns and uncertainties and reluctance. Indeed, a little analytics and reporting can assist dissipate some of that.

What is the Purpose of Predictive Analysis in Healthcare?

In primary care and bundled payment programs, the use of predictive analytics has risen; it is being used in the emergency department of the hospitals. Predictive analytics helps maintain healthy patients and decrease readmissions, leading to better results.  Also, delivery care can be improved based on what is known about patients, and information can be shared across many applications and multiple teams responsible for patient care.

Predictive analytics also enables healthcare systems to use their human and physical resources better.

Besides, a study released this year by the Actuaries Society finds that both payers and suppliers are increasing their use of predictive analytics and have high expectations for it.

Predictive analytics has architectural ramifications and to process that you need systems and architecture. Analytics that can consume these types of lines of information service and workflow procedures that are informed by a mixture of care suppliers as well as collaborative automated systems.

The use of predictive analytics will increase as technology continues to deliver outcomes, and healthcare organizations become more accustomed to value-based payment systems. For the most part, predictive analytics are seen in more prominent hospitals that have more cash and are in a better situation to scrutinize what they are doing but can trickle down as the use of technology becomes prevalent.
