Iasist offers a new benchmarking service to Primary Care administrating entities by introducing a system of indicators adjusted by case-mix, by means of the Adjusted Clinical Groups ACG(TM).
Who is it aimed at?
- For primary care professionals: doctors and nursing staff.
- For directors and mangers of primary care teams (PCT) and for managers of primary care administrative entities.
- For authorities in charge of primary care.
Case-mix comes to Primary Care.
Experts in Primary Care (PC) have spent the last 10 years asking for case-mix measures to be brought into the evaluation of Primary Care Team (PCT) activities. Without these adjustment measures, the traditional indicators barely reflect the health risk presented by the different contingencies dealt with by the PCT.
Streamlined, results-oriented benchmarking
By means of easy browsing, Comparative Primary Care Reports (CPCR) give an overall view of the Primary Care administrating entities' work by providing indicators relating to the results obtained by each entity along with the results obtained by comparable entities.
The comparative analysis of results with other PCT or administrating entities identifies areas of excellence or requiring improvement, whilst the multi-level traceability (administrating entity- Primary Care Team - individual doctor) locates the origin of deviations and therefore influences the different management incidents accordingly.
A broad range of analysis indicators
The CPCR is used to monitor three key dimensions for management, which are demand, the case studies dealt with and efficiency. It compares the adjusted results for your organisation against those obtained by entities with a similar scale for the following phenomena:
- Age and gender profile
- Analysis of hyper-users
- Displaced population cared for
- Relative complexity
- Most frequent ACG, EDC
- Resource Utilization Bands
- Visits per patient
- Average pharmacy cost per patient
- Specialist inter-consultation per patient
- Tests / lab costs per patient
- Tests / radiology costs per patient
Three levels of analysis with full traceability
By using Comparative Primary Care Reports (CPCR), each administrative entity receives results for a triple level of analysis:
- The overall administrative entity or territorial area
- The different Primary Care Teams
- The individual doctors
