Healthcare Administrative Partners Launches Deep Dive Analytics Service

Physician-inspired solution puts standard radiology data into action to drive improved patient outcomes and practice value

Healthcare Administrative Partners Launches Deep Dive Analytics Service

April 12, 2018 — Healthcare Administrative Partners (HAP) announced the launch of Deep Dive Analytics, an integrated clinical data analytics and business service that empowers radiology practice decisions and actions across a variety of critical performance areas.

Two core modules make up Deep Dive Analytics. The incidental findings module:

  • Mines radiology clinical data;
  • Identifies patients in need of follow-up evaluation based on condition-specific algorithms;
  • Executes notification letters to patients and primary care physicians; and
  • Monitors patient response.

The practice productivity and quality maximization module queries dictated reports to identify opportunities to improve both patient care and operational efficiency.

A research study cited in the Journal of the American College of Radiology indicated that an average of 71 percent of patients with incidental lung nodule findings do not return for follow-up care.

Using custom algorithms, Deep Dive Analytics mines radiology clinical data and identifies those patients with lung nodules detected during earlier encounters who should be undergoing follow-up evaluation based on current treatment guidelines. This data is then output to an automated business process that notifies the patients and primary care physicians via mail at specific intervals about the recommendation for follow-up care as determined by the size of the nodule detected. The solution also tracks patient response and the status of the nodule once the follow-up screening occurs.

HAP stated that the average rate of those returning for evaluation increased by over 90 percent as compared to the period before any follow-up process was in place at the practice. The company also noted that within the group that received the notification letters, over 23 percent had a new or worsening condition.

The incidental findings module of Deep Dive Analytics also enables radiology groups to identify those patients who received a removable IVC filter from one of that group’s interventional radiologists, but who have not returned for the removal procedure via any provider within the entire health system. As in the lung nodules scenario, notification letters are then sent to patients and primary care physicians encouraging return visits for evaluation.

Liver, renal, kidney and thyroid profiles are all slated for addition to the incidental findings module within the next several months.

The second core module of Deep Dive Analytics provides practice productivity and care quality improvement features via one-click access to relevant, actionable intelligence.
