Supply Chain Management

The Challenge

Medical supplies, pharmaceuticals and third party support services consume 30-40% of a hospital’s budget. Hospital supply chains are complex and often segregated from other hospital systems. The resulting inefficiencies impact financial performance, hinder the availability of patient services, and limit the full use of revenue-generating facilities.

The Solution

MicroStrategy supply chain solutions can optimize the way hospitals perform price benchmarking, enabling representatives to interact with clients, explore their data in real time, and quickly identify where they can save money by adjusting their buying patterns. Using MicroStrategy solutions, hospitals and entire health systems can: • Monitor stock usage and inventory across the enterprise in real time • Align stocking levels with usage demands • Improve volume pricing through hospital or system-wide purchases • Gain a clear understanding of costs, service levels, and performance of competing vendors to negotiate best value for supplies and services

Revenue Cycle Optimization

The Challenge

More than 20% of US hospitals have negative total profit margins.* Hospitals operate with lean margins; managing cash flow and expediting payments and insurance reimbursements is critical. CFOs and revenue cycle leadership must be on the same page to monitor and analyze the financial metrics that contribute to net revenue. Source: Analysis of American Hospital Association Annual Survey data, 2014, http://www.aha.org/research/reports/tw/chartbook/2016/table4-1.pdf

The Solution

With the MicroStrategy analytics platform harmonizing billing, cash and remittance data, hospitals can monitor and forecast financial performance more effectively. These solutions allow financial managers to track revenue cycle developments and quickly respond to issues such as delayed reimbursements and denied claims. They can easily drill into billing data to help uncover the root causes of revenue cycle delays, such as incorrect diagnostic coding, confusion over patient insurance eligibility, or required co-payments. Physicians can also be included in the dialogue as they can be provided a secure, personalized view of their own financial performance.

Hospital Operations

The Challenge

Time wasted due to inefficient communications within healthcare workflows cost the average US hospital $1.75 million annually.* Source: Ponemon Institute, “The Imprivata Report on the Economic Impact of Inefficient Communications in Healthcare,” June 2014

The Solution

Healthcare facilities experience fluctuating capacity. Underestimating demand for appointments and procedures can leave patients waiting, reducing satisfaction and perceptions of care, while overestimating demand results in under-utilized clinical staff and unnecessary expenses. MicroStrategy helps hospitals use realtime data to minimize patient wait times, optimize hospital resources, and proactively prepare for emergency visits. With MicroStrategy mobile apps, medical centers can mobilize key systems so the entire staff is aligned, from the boardroom down to the frontline clinicians, leading to increased productivity, significant cost savings, and a better patient experience.

The Solution

Usher lets healthcare providers issue digital badges to physicians, nurses, and support staff so they can securely log into healthcare systems and gain access to approved facilities using multi-factor, proximity-based authentication. These include push notifications, biometrics, one-time passwords, face-to-face validation, and Bluetooth proximity. Authentication helps secure all sensitive patient information and ensures that only qualified staff have access to records. Usher also helps secure facilities by restricting physical access based on individual credentials and gives administrators a real-time view of where badge holders are located. With these insights, administrators and security staff can more effectively monitor on-site activity.

Patient-Centered Medical Home

The Challenge

The promise of the patient-centered medical home model is that with coordinated care across an ecosystem of providers, patients can receive a higher level of service delivered at lower costs. However, keeping patient data aligned across multiple care settings and presenting it to providers in a consistent fashion is a significant challenge.

The Solution

MicroStrategy enables PCMH teams to efficiently and effectively manage their patient population by providing access to accurate and updated patient data across care settings. This allows providers to take actions that can result in decreased duplication of services, lowered hospitalization rates, and improved quality of care and patient outcomes. PCMH analytics also help in tracking monthly cost and quality performance of the physicians and care teams. MicroStrategy solutions extend well beyond the boundaries of satisfying the PCMH standards; users can gain great insight into patient populations, have access to actionable reports, and can drill down from populationbased reports to the individual patient level.

Population Health Management

The Challenge

Population health management is the new frontier for healthcare delivery, enabling providers to make care recommendations proactively based on complete insight into their patients’ medical histories. While EHR deployments are now capturing massive volumes of patient records, the challenge is in how to predictively analyze historical data to assess patient risk as well as recommend appropriate care.

The Solution

Architected for big data applications, the MicroStrategy Analytics platform can source structured and unstructured patient data from multiple, disparate EHR systems. By applying predictive analytics across a wide array of patient information (past medical history, vital signs, SOAP notes, diagnoses, medications, immunization dates, allergies, lab data, imaging scans, and reports) the application can stratify patient risk and suggest an initial action plan, such as an in-home assessment or mini-clinic visit. This analysis, along with relevant information such as insurance, demographic data, and even data imported from personal wellness devices, can be consumed on highly-organized, easyto-read dashboards, making it effortless for authorized practitioners to review patient history. Features such as pop-up reminders, easy menus, and vivid user interfaces make this application far less time-consuming than paper charts. The application can also be transaction-enabled to immediately write back any changes to the record directly from a web or mobile interface.

Claims Analysis

The Challenge

Health insurance is all about managing risk. As part of the claims analysis process, health plans must be able to ensure risk score accuracy to maximize reimbursement flows from government entities and other payers.

The Solution

MicroStrategy solutions help insurers efficiently process massive volumes of claims with analytics that validate patient coverage levels and confirm that the rendered care services are consistent with the patient’s treatment profile. Additionally, insurers can run predictive analytics against all patient data, internal data, and public data sources to generate accurate patient risk scores. Using these scores as benchmarks, insurers can demonstrate that the provided treatment is reducing patient risk and helping to reduce future health costs, entitling them to reimbursement from government entities (such as the CMS in the US) or other payers. This helps improve their quality ratings, making the health plan more attractive to consumers seeking coverage. This particular example shows an executive level mobile app which summarizes important KPIs and trends related to the membership, such as whether per member per month (PMPS) outlays are within expected norms. It also enables executives to drill into details related to financial performance, membership activity, quality of care, and population health.

Fraud and Abuse Analysis

The Challenge

According to the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association, each family in the U.S. pays more than $800 extra in healthcare costs every year because of healthcare fraud. Claims costs are continuing to rise and healthcare payers need to proactively reduce costs by managing clinical outcomes for members.

The Solution

MicroStrategy data discovery capabilities can help healthcare payers identify providers who are charging above normal rates or excessively billing expensive procedures. This dashboard application contains both procedure and payments information for a specific hospital and compares submitted charges against paid charges for each procedure. Using interactive filters, payers are able to isolate the problem areas and identify providers who need to be evaluated in more detail. This application also helps identify claims that arise from readmissions for procedures. The Sankey diagram identifies distinct patient demographics and the frequency of readmission by procedure. Payers are able to correlate which members don’t take medication and are able to initiate proactive measures to better manage clinical outcomes.
