Population health records carry a wealth of data that can be used to help clinicians understand patterns in patient behavior that suggest an opportunity for an intervention.

The U.S Department of Veteran Affairs has developed systems that are determining the best way to alert clinicians of an opportunity for a beneficial intervention. The system looks at clinical data and identifies treatments that provided improved outcomes, measured the results and applied process improvement. The resulting data helps provide insight into care models that support improved outcomes, measure the results, and apply process improvement.

In this educational presentation, Nathan Tierney, Director, Value Management at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, will share the strategy and planning process that went into this project.
