WellSky solution provides insights

Friday, September 6, 2019

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – WellSky has launched an enhanced data analytics solution for home health care providers called WellSky Home Health CareInsights. The solution is powered by algorithms based on historical data from more than 7 million home health patient episodes. It provides both care managers and clinicians with predictive insights on patient real-time hospitalization risk, social determinants of health, care setting suitability and low utilization payment adjustment or LUPA risk. “After collaborating with our home health clients, we recognized that providers needed meaningful data beyond the population level to truly understand patients and their individual circumstances,” said Wes Little, vice president of analytics for WellSky. “Our purpose-built CareInsights solution delivers vital population- and patient-level insights to clinicians at the point of care, so they can make informed, individualized clinical care decisions to improve patient experience and outcomes.” The solution includes CareAssist, a feature that equips home health clinical staff with a real-time snapshot of each patient’s clinical and non-clinical risk factors directly within the client’s WellSky Home Health EHR software.
