The Power to Obtain Complete, Real-World Patient Data
Rethink what is possible….Obtain timely real-world patient data through Outcomes Health’s proven Health Care Data Acquisition, Abstraction, and Analysis Capabilities
To achieve the most accurate results, a sound clinical data process is vital. Outcomes Health’s trained team made up of registered nurses expertly acquires and reviews healthcare data, specific to your study’s objectives and measurement parameters.
Using Outcomes Health’s proprietary processes and technology, our nationwide network of 4,000 data acquisition specialists collect evidentiary data from the point-of-care settings following study-specific criteria. Our centralized staff of nurses investigates the raw data, extracts the information you need, and objectively presents the findings. It’s all part of best-in-class health information services.
Our proprietary processes and technology have been developed to efficiently gather patient data. To do this we have the ability to work across paper and electronic based medical record platforms, including proprietary platforms used by payers and managed care. We leverage on-site data acquisition in combination with fax/mail and EMR record transmittal from provider locations. Additionally, our centralized acquisition and abstracting processes and resources ensure you receive high-quality data faster than current industry models.
Our solutions for the Life Sciences include:
On an annual basis, Outcomes Health is involved in helping our health plan clients meet quality of care compliance requirements. For example, last year our team acquired, abstracted, analyzed, and reported data from more than 550,000 charts across 21 clients within 10 weeks.
Acquiring the data entailed coordinating transmittal processes with more than 179,000 providers at more than 118,000 locations in 43 US states. Outcomes Health utilized a blend of acquisition techniques including on-site data acquisition for more than 69,000 providers. We also gathered patient data via EMR, fax, and mail transmittals.
The projects were completed on-time with 100% of compliance audits passed. Critical to our success in completing these projects were our flexible staff deployment processes, technology platform, and centralized abstraction and monitoring services. These tools and technologies are available to our life sciences clients and can be appropriately scaled to meet the needs of the project.
Outcomes Health was asked to provide chart collection and abstraction services for a comparative effectiveness study of antiplatelet agents in an in-patient setting. For this retrospective chart review Outcomes Health requested charts for 645 patients at 150 differentU.S. provider sites.
Outcomes health delivered a dataset to to the client less than 12 weeks from receipt of the list subjects.
When it comes to gathering data, you’re only as fast as your slowest site. By putting abstraction and data submission in the hands of a dedicated group, timelines are accelerated. Quality also increases as a small group of dedicated and specially trained abstractors will have higher inter-reader reliability than 150 site coordinators abstracting a few charts each.
