Beth Israel Deaconess Physician Organization (BIDPO) has contracted with Ingenix to help its doctors measure clinical performance to reduce variations in care – capabilities essential to BIDPO’s plans to operate successfully under anticipated state and national payment reform changes.
Ingenix will provide BIDPO with a deeper understanding of underlying health trends, comparative efficacy of treatments and quality metrics of care, helping the organization to better coordinate, measure and improve care. These are important steps as health care systems move toward implementing accountable care organizations (ACOs) under federal law.
An ACO is a new model for delivering health care services that emphasizes collaboration between participating physicians, hospitals and health plans to improve care and service to patients. The ACO model requires that all stakeholders share responsibility for the wellness of patients, as well as associated financial payments.
BIDPO will implement the Ingenix Impact Suite™ of software to provide analytics that support its goals for more efficient and effective care. Ingenix Impact Suite software integrates information from many sources and systems, and provides comprehensive data analytics and reporting capabilities to deliver insights that inform strategies to improve patients’ health outcomes.
Ingenix Impact Suite technology will enable BIDPO’s physicians, medical leaders, case managers and directors to:
“The entire health care delivery system is becoming more focused on collaborating and sharing accountability for patient health,” said Roberta Zysman, executive director, Beth Israel Deaconess Physician Organization. “Ingenix’s software will help us develop insights from our clinical data to support this transition – including our future efforts to create an ACO with our clinical partners – by providing our physicians with valid clinical data that helps them understand how to make quality and cost improvements in the care they provide, and that complements the data management capabilities we’ve developed with Healthcare Data Services, LLC.”
“Ingenix is helping the Beth Israel Deaconess Physician Organization measure clinical and operational performance which will enable it to improve quality and reduce cost of patient care,” said Dogu Celebi, M.D., Ingenix chief medical officer. “The Ingenix Impact Suite of software is part of a broad set of capabilities that Ingenix delivers to ACOs across the country. BIDPO is at the forefront of applying this technology directly to health care delivery as the group prepares for the new paradigm of accountable care.”
In addition to Ingenix Impact Suite solutions, Ingenix provides a comprehensive range of consulting services, health IT and analytics services to support the establishment of ACOs and other coordinated care models.
