CHRT has the expertise to provide analytic and policy recommendations to ACOs to improve their quality and health improvement initiatives. CHRT has a track record of performing comprehensive analyses and literature review on key health care issues of significance to providers of care.
CHRT works collaboratively with the ACO to select topics of interest and agree upon a scope of work.
Next, the analysis phase involves a thorough literature review and data analysis utilizing ACO claims data, public data sources, or survey results. As needed, CHRT can draw upon clinical and policy leadership at the state and national level to gain insight on key trends, policy initiatives and opportunities to improve the ACO continuum of care.
A final report is prepared with key insights and recommendations and presented to the ACO, with follow-up consultation services as needed.
Past comprehensive analyses have included:
- End of life care, including hospice and palliative care use
- Readmissions and observation bed use
- Outlier trends, with a focus on post-discharge care
- Appropriateness of care, including implementation of Choosing Wisely measures
CHRT is uniquely positioned to add value to ACOs with our depth and breadth of health industry knowledge; access to leaders in the field and top clinicians at the University of Michigan; commitment to objective, independent analysis without cross-selling other consulting or product services; and maintenance of our non-profit status with a goal to improve population health and health care.
