How can Small Practices Benefit from Healthcare Business Intelligence?
Healthcare business intelligence (BI) tools are a must-have for small practices. If
implemented in the right manner, BI can improve care by delivering extra value to patients.
It can also reduce the cost of running a medical practice.
Large as well as small practices opt for BI due to its ability to improve clinical and financial
outcomes. Tasks such as management of billing cycles and AR, tracking of contracts and
indentifying patients in need for particular services can be easily managed by BI tools.
Industry Facts
According to a survey by TEKsystems, 58% of healthcare organizations haven't
implemented BI systems
As per a KLAS report, more than half of all healthcare organizations in the US are
planning to buy or replace a new BI system over next three years
Small practices have digital information in the form of PMI, EHR and billing records. Now
that the BI system has become more advanced and affordable, small practices are able to
turn all that digital information into meaningful business intelligence. This has helped
providers reap the following benefits:
Through BI, physicians have been able to create customizable health plans. These
plans are effective in management of patient conditions based on lab results,
demographics and diagnoses. They are able to set up alarms and reminders to see
which patient is more prone to a chronic disease, what are the risk factors and what
solutions are required to manage the disease
With the help of advanced BI tools, it has become easy to increase the first-time
reimbursement capture and also follow up on underpaid and denied claims
Geographic analysis has become easier with the latest BI software. It helps
determine where the patients are coming from so that marketing efforts can be
targeted in a better manner
