There are two trends that have the potential to completely change healthcare in the US:
Helping providers focus on rising-risk patients and reduce complications related to chronic diseases including asthma, diabetes and allergies
At the convergence of these two trends is a system tasked with controlling costs while improving health outcomes.
While chronic conditions account for more than 86% of all healthcare dollars, these are also some of the most preventable and effectively controlled illnesses. But current technology isn't equipped to provide the insights needed to stop complications and target care activities that will help better manage patients with chronic conditions and drive more effective clinical action.
So we equipped Jvion's Cognitive Clinical Success Machine to help providers target rising-risk patients and reduce complications related to chronic diseases. It does this using more than a quadrillion clinical and non-clinical considerations and thousands of data elements. To this data, over 150 thousand self-learning Eigen Spheres are applied for each patient in real time to provide high definition views into patient health 30, 60, 90 and up to 365 days into the future.
These views help providers prevent:
As a result, providers have the actions and recommendations needed to:
According to the National Council on Aging:
These conditions comprise more than three-quarters of the healthcare spend in the United States. In addition to patient suffering, chronic diseases also drive what could be avoidable admissions and hospitalizations along with higher rates of readmissions. The Center for Managing Chronic Disease has outlined the circles of influence that help manage chronic diseases and avoid complications. These spheres include:
Nearly 66% of all adult discharges from community-based hospitals have multiple chronic conditions.
Chronic diseases are complex problems that lead to higher mortality, utilization of services, and a greater cost. A recent study released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) concluded that nearly 66% of all adult discharges from community-based hospitals have Multiple Chronic Conditions (MCCs). MCCs are associated with higher numbers of avoidable admissions and hospitalizations, and increase the risk of readmissions. Moreover, rates of avoidable admissions, hospitalizations, and readmissions are compounded by payer type, race, sex, and age indicating the complex nature of MCCs and the interplay with racial and socioeconomic factors.
As our population ages and chronic conditions are compounded, managing individuals with one or multiple illnesses will take an even more central role. Finding ways to predict possible readmission risks and complications to drive interventions and self-management, help improve overall health while reducing the risk of hospitalization.
The good news is that evidence strongly suggests that tailored interventions are not only feasible, they are highly effective at reducing admissions, length of stay, and avoidable readmissions for these individuals.
