The Healthcare Provider’s Dilemma: Incomplete Data

Clinical data alone is not enough to affect meaningful change in population health

The EMR was created to house clinical and billing data. But with the transition from fee-for-services to accountable care, paradigms are shifting, and the old ways of caring for patients are no longer sufficient.

Today, clinical data is merely one part of what is needed to improve patients’ health. It’s crucial to go beyond the EMR and collect a deeper pool of patient information—the social determinants of health, such as social, economic, educational, and geographic factors—to enable your providers to address the whole patient.

A New Paradigm: Understanding the Whole Patient

Filling in information gaps leads to solutions for complex issues

  • Health Literacy Levels

    Talk to your patients on their level, educate them appropriately, and engage them in their health

  • Behavioral Health Profile

    Engage a comprehensive care team to affect your patients’ health outcomes

  • Historical Data

    Uncover life events that present barriers to your patients’ ongoing wellness

  • Social, Education, and Economic Indicators

    Comprehend the day-to-day stressors and opportunities that affect your patients’  health

  • Geographic Data

    Understand health challenges based on where your patients live and their environments

  • Patient Satisfaction

    Learn what your patients value in their healthcare
