Unique big data analytics solution helps healthcare provider organizations achieve higher financial reimbursements and an improved patient care experience
Campbell, Calif. — February 20, 2014 — Saama Technologies, Inc., a leading pure-play data and analytics solutions and services company, today announced the Saama Patient Engagement Solution aimed at healthcare providers to improve patient engagement and deliver higher quality patient care. Saama’s end-to-end solution improves patient care experiences and enables optimal patient engagement strategies for better Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers & Systems (HCAHPS) scores that can directly lead to higher financial reimbursements.
The Saama Patient Engagement Solution helps healthcare provider organizations with the challenges of the pay for performance government model that reimburses or penalizes providers based on HCAHPS patient satisfaction and care outcome scores. The solution directly addresses this need by merging comprehensive big data sets, including: social media, internal surveys, EMR/HER notes and CMS/HCAHPS and then applying our Saama Analytics Framework with advanced data science to provide a 360-degree view of patient engagement. The intuitive user interface and powerful data platform provide a visual analytical framework driving the development of key insights through the deployment of best-of-breed technologies that leverage your existing business intelligence architecture. The full power of the solution is in its ability to identify how specific topical areas contribute to patient engagement and satisfaction. In addition, it enables the use of predictive analytics techniques to model the impact on the total scores based on improvements in specific topical areas. The solution not only provides a detailed view by provider facility, but also enables competitive benchmarking of neighboring facilities.
Our Saama Patient Engagement Solution uses industry-leading big data analytics, natural language processing (NLP) and scoring algorithms to deliver an innovative patient engagement solution to improve the patient experience. It helps identify weaknesses and key opportunities for enhancing patient care, promising a:
• Ten percent improvement in HCAHPS scores in 12 months
• Fifty percent time reduction from problem identification to action
• Complete data and analytics solution delivered in 10 weeks
“Today’s healthcare landscape is changing due to the wealth of data at our fingertips,” said Scott Clarke, VP & GM, Life Sciences and Healthcare at Saama Technologies. “Healthcare organizations must harness this data to effectively identify opportunities for improving patient care. Saama’s solution analyzes all of the diverse data sets to offer optimal patient engagement strategies that deliver profound results.”
