Or check out a few examples of how we’ve changed lives.
If you’re going to change the way your care teams use data, you have to ask some very hard questions starting with two magical little words:
We give clinicians information they want and need but could never access. When they (and their teams) can leverage this information to do the job they were born to do, patients will be healthier, quality will go up and costs will go down. That’s where everyone is trying to go. With FHG, your information isn’t just a fuzzy pile of data, it’s transformed into focused, care coordination action lists that will become your organization’s richest asset.
Getting data right is the first step in your improvement journey. Traditional IT approaches like data warehouses and BI platforms are not solving anybody’s problems. Our approach to harvesting clinical and administrative data works. And to be clear, we don’t have a magical algorithm or a mystical black box. Instead, we build solid, clean denominators. Your data is better because we build the cohorts of patients that all of your stakeholders will recognize and accept as accurate. From there, you pick the numerators that align with your goals.
Not an empty claim, a promise.
To move the needle of patient care…to really, really improve care, you have to do more than just spit out data. You have to get the data right. That means organizing it, cleaning it, deciding what to measure, what to focus on and even then you can’t stop there. You have to present it intuitively so a care team can do something with it. Quickly. Efficiently.
"PopulationManager has emerged as a great tool in the AMA Improving Health Outcomes program. It has helped us identify difficult-to-treat-patients - they are now more “on our radar.” Additionally, using PopulationManager will positively affect the care we provide our patients by reducing end-organ damage that arises from uncontrolled hypertension.

"PopulationManager is a huge asset to our practice. Its intuitive and graphical interface makes it incredibly easy for us to quickly identify hypertensive patients needing close monitoring and to manage our high-risk populations.”
“PopulationManager can look at the social determinants of health that are often associated with negative outcomes so I can focus on those populations.”
