Overcoming the limitations of traditional data with integrated assets
Posted October 20th, 2015
Clinical data can provide a snapshot of care, but more than one data set is needed for a comprehensive, longitudinal view of patient care and treatment options.
Optum® has overcome the traditional limitations of clinical data by integrating it with claims data. We combine electronic health record (EHR) data with claims, prescription and practice management information to provide insight into patterns of care, patient clinical profiles and health records.
Such insight can help providers, administrators and researchers better understand drivers behind care for disease states such as diabetes.
