Market Planning

A rural Prospective Payment System hospital in southeast Missouri sought opportunities to expand its services to better serve the needs of their patient community. Using HIDI’s Market Optics solution, hospital leadership uncovered an underserved need for more urology providers and services that they decided to target in their service expansion efforts. By offering these services locally, they were able to help patients reduce their travel time by 120 minutes roundtrip and be seen faster than if they traveled to a metropolitan facility.

Quality Measure Performance

Exploring strategies to lower risk-adjusted readmissions that resulted in high CMS penalties, a hospital in central Missouri began using HIDI’s Care Optics dashboards to gain insight. The dashboards identified a higher-than-normal readmission rate for patients discharged to home-health agency care. Based on this new insight, they targeted improvement efforts toward this patient population resulting in fewer excess readmissions and rates that were comparable with hospitals throughout the state.

Care Coordination

When a state-run agency in Missouri needed timelier and deeper insights into the care needs driving hospitalization among their complex behavioral health patients, they turned to HIDI’s Point of Care Solutions. This real-time insight, along with alerts and notifications driven by customized client watch lists, resulted in better care coordination, cost savings and improved care quality for patients.

Community Health & Health Equity

A St. Louis-area hospital had limited resources to invest in community health improvement activities. With vast disparities existing between neighborhoods separated by mere miles, they turned to HIDI’s exploreMOhealth solution for hyperlocal data and insights. Its unique zip health rankings methodology precisely illuminated the types of initiatives that would maximize the impact of their efforts on health outcomes in their service area.

HIDI ADVANTAGE Fundamentals Testimonial

When North Carolina needed to update its outdated system for state-mandated hospital data collection, the North Carolina Healthcare Association turned to HIDI.

“We had a very short timeframe to migrate our data from our previous vendor, and HIDI committed all the resources to help us complete the migration in what was really record time,” said Jonathan Kea, NCHA’s senior director for data and information systems. “We’ve had very good feedback from our members. We’ve had very few issues with the migration.” HIDI Advantage Fundamentals is the cornerstone of its business, providing turnkey hospital intake and discharge data collection, processing, aggregation and delivery in full compliance with state mandates.

HIDI ADVANTAGE Analytics Testimonial

When Bryan Metzger saw a HIDI presentation about a website that provided ZIP-code-level health information for Missouri hospitals and communities, he saw an opportunity to make better use of hospital data already being collected in Tennessee.

The result was exploreTNhealth, a web-based tool developed by HIDI and the Tennessee Hospital Association, where Metzger serves as senior vice president for information services.

“We saw exploreTNhealth as an opportunity to leverage the data that our association collects (hospital claims data) to benefit public health at large in our state,” he said. “exploreTNhealth, and the ZIP Health Rankings dataset that powers it, provides a unique, granular view of community health.”

ZIP-code-level health information is one example of how HIDI Advantage Analytics can help hospitals and state associations better understand and respond to the health needs of their communities.
