A critical element of business success across industries has been the surge in use of open application programming interfaces (API) that provide data for applications that did not create or originate the data. APIs are the technical foundation of engaging…
Today, there is no all-in-one solution that provides the functionality required for the next generation of consumer engagement in healthcare. This new report clearly articulates how HCOs and other key stakeholders in the healthcare industry must work together to bring those features into a single platform that benefits all consumers regardless of age, health status, technological proficiency, or socioeconomic status.
This Chilmark Research Insight Report takes an unvarnished look at how much we pay for healthcare, where the money goes, the various approaches being taken to reduce spending, and, most importantly, the simple things that are not being done to dramatically reduce the cost of providing care.
The days of clinicians viewing what happens beyond the clinical walls as none of their business are soon to be over and risk stratification methodologies are an important window into the changes to come and how clinical teams and care managers will need to partner to offer better preventive care. In this report we examine where risk models are now and where major vendors and new entrants into this space are headed with risk stratification efforts in the coming years.
The Chilmark Research Value Chain Model will help HCOs adopt a step-by-step process to identifying the stakeholders, processes, and outcomes that are key to a 360-degree analytics strategy in a VBC model. The report provides strategic insight and guidance to anyone interested in the role that a defined analytics strategy and robust analytics platform can play in accelerating an HCO’s ability achieve the goals of VBC. HCOs, payers, healthcare IT vendors, consultants, investors, and others will all benefit from this in-depth report.
At its core, care management is about delivering the right care in the right setting at the right time. This report is the result of Chilmark’s comprehensive review of over 100 solutions currently available in the market, for which a subset of leading vendors have been comprehensively reviewed (20 in-depth profiles, 9 additional discussed). These solutions will be critical to enable an HCOs population health management strategy.
While vendors continue to make progress in the functional evolution of their analytics solutions, healthcare organizations (HCOs) struggle with the complexity of their data management requirements and embedding analytical insights into clinical workflows in support of strategic initiatives. This extensive update to the 2014 edition…
While remote patient monitoring (RPM) may be a simple concept to understand, the research we conducted for this report revealed a complex landscape with different technology models and business cases. Carefully dissecting the approaches taken by a wide array of industries – medical device manufacturers, enterprise software vendors, pharmaceutical companies, health insurers, and several startups – this research report presents an underlying, multi-stage model for turning patient sensors into an actionable, real-time data feedback loop.
To create a true longitudinal care plan, HCOs must break down data and operational silos, automating communication processes and other workflows across disparate provider organizations, and provide patients and their caregivers access to the care plan. Some HCOs today use electronic health record (EHR) systems to attempt to accomplish this goal, while others use bare-bones care management systems or even paper-based records. Chilmark believes that HCOs will need far more comprehensive tools for documenting, developing, distributing, and monitoring the types of longitudinal care plans that will truly bend the cost curve in healthcare.

Until recently, health information exchange (HIE) deployments focused primarily on moving limited clinical datasets among a tightly circumscribed network of clinicians. This report looks beyond the common HIE use cases and vocabulary in use today and defines a new term, Clinician Network Management (CNM). Our goal is to encourage HCOs of all sizes to reconsider their HIEs, as something more than information exchange, namely a platform to support a variety of clinician information needs at the point of care.

Building a professional infrastructure for healthcare analytics is not rocket science. There are hundreds of software tools available to create a manageable framework and platform for developing and supporting analytic applications. The biggest challenge is to recognize that analytic projects are different from other IT projects in nearly every respect: from the mind set of the project leaders and participants, to the technology used, to the project management skills required. This report sheds light on the requirements all HCOs should be thinking through when planning for any analytics project.
