Hospitals & Clinics

Hospitals & Clinics

Hospitals carry a large proportion of the burden to reduce the cost of care. They must find strategies to reduce or avoid unnecessary hospitalizations and eliminate the over-utilization of emergency room services, cutting costs, and focusing on patients with a truly emergent need. Access to comprehensive health information is necessary to overcome these challenges. Having access to robust health data offers insights that can be used to flag medication use and abuse, identify gaps in care management, enable the development of comprehensive discharge plans, and increase the odds the patient will receive consistent follow-up care in an outpatient setting.
