McKesson Analytics Explorer is improving clinical and financial outcomes at more than 30 health systems across the nation, McKesson said yesterday.
Through the combination of McKesson Analytics Explorer, McKesson’s health care expertise and business adviser services, customers are experiencing improvements in their clinical, financial, operational and quality outcomes.
“Through McKesson Analytics Explorer, we are able to focus on unmet patients’ needs in the domains of safety and quality, and thus enable our clinicians to act in a timely manner on actionable analytics that are meaningful to our patients,” Danyal Ibrahim, chief data and analytics officer at Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center, said. “At the same time, our analysts can develop complex, organizational-specific analyses that give us a competitive advantage in our market and prepare us for taking on additional risk as the move toward value-based reimbursement advances.”
When McKesson Analystics Explorer is used with McKesson Performance Analytics, McKesson’s decision-support solution, customers can carry out cost accounting functions, allocating costs and revenue across settings of care for a more accurate view of the profitability of value-based contracts.
“Providers need analytics tools to ensure they are maximizing their eroding margins,” McKesson Strategic Intelligence Vice President John Shewell said. “However, as the industry moves toward more reimbursement based on value and less on fee-for-service, the ability of analytics tools to aggregate and analyze data across settings of care without regard for which vendor created them will be absolutely critical to healthcare organization success.”
