Today’s providers need more than just a historical view of their patients. They need the ability to understand the factors and characteristics that contribute to chronic conditions and related care plans, so they can uncover which patients pose the highest risk and what courses of treatment may be most effective.  This kind of forward-looking insight enables providers to increase treatment efficiency and improve outcomes by engaging in more proactive preventative care. 

Predictive analytics technologies significantly enhance all facets of healthcare, including the way research is conducted, treatment plans are formulated, and care is delivered. Providers are empowered to leverage existing data to uncover the patterns and trends that may indicate future events, conditions, or behaviors. As a result, they can determine the optimal conditions for patients with certain diseases; anticipate the onset of sepsis, diabetes, and other illnesses; and predict potential readmissions, patient safety events, medication adherence, opioid abuse, denial of claims, and more.    

But, the value of predictive analytics depends on the quality of the underlying data. Information that is outdated, incorrect, or incomplete will deliver inaccurate predictions and forecasts that negatively impact decisions related to care quality and outcomes.
