Prevent Avoidable Admissions with Cognitive Machines
Three-quarters of Emergency Department (ER) visits do not require immediate attention or are preventable through ambulatory care.
Of these visits, 21-28% are made by what many in the industry call "frequent fliers:" those patients with manageable, ambulatory care sensitive conditions who regularly visit the hospital.
These patients may end up in the ER or admitted to the hospital 10+ times a year and help explain why 80% of all healthcare costs are spent on just 20% of the population.
While inappropriate use of the ER and hospital resources is a major source of waste within the healthcare system, the causes driving these visits aren’t necessarily the fault of the individual patients. Studies suggest that early ambulatory based intervention, coordinated care, and targeted treatments effectively avoid admissions, help to manage the chronic conditions that contribute to ER visits, and improve quality of life.
But ER visits and "frequent fliers" have been historically difficult to foresee. And hospitals have struggled to forecast unreimbursed episodes of care to more effectively budget and manage expenses.
The Cognitive Clinical Success Machine is changing the way hospitals manage avoidable admissions. By providing the risk and clinical recommendations that will help hospitals manage risking risk patients while they are still in the ambulatory setting, the Cognitive Clinical Success Machine is reducing avoidable ER and inpatient admissions. The results are healthier patients and lowered costs.
Jvion's Cognitive Clinical Success Machine is being applied to:
Avoidable 30-day ER visits
Avoidable 30-day inpatient visits
Unreimbursed ER care visits
These insights are helping hospitals:
Prevent avoidable ER visits and admissions
Treat high-utilizers within outpatient/ambulatory settings
Decrease frequent fliers by 15%
Reduce ER waste and the cost of care
Project unreimbursed ER care episodes
