BOSTON & DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., & ALEXANDRIA, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- DuPage Medical Group (DMG), the largest independent multi-specialty physician group in the western suburbs of Chicago, has selected Humedica MinedShare® as its clinical intelligence solution and has joined the American Medical Group Association’s Anceta collaborative.
“DuPage Medical Group physicians have been using the Epic Electronic Health Record (EHR) since 2006 to document patient encounters,” states Krishna Ramachandran, Executive Director of Value Driven Health Care at DMG. “The EHR allows our physicians to better coordinate care and more easily provide outcome data for quality initiatives. Humedica MinedShare, which provides comprehensive clinical benchmarking data and robust population health analytics, will help DMG better understand treatment variation and outcomes for patients with chronic conditions such as diabetes and COPD, as well as identify opportunities for care improvement.”
Care providers at DMG utilize evidence-based guidelines embedded in the EHR to improve the health of patients struggling with leading health concerns, such as diabetes, asthma, heart and lung diseases. By providing patients with after visit summaries, education materials, and electronic access to their health information, DMG is also engaging patients in their own health care.
Humedica integrates data from DMG’s Epic EHR along with clinical, financial and operational data to generate a complete view of an organization’s patient population. Within Humedica MinedShare, an organization can access advanced analytics to define appropriate patient cohorts, treatment pathways, and outcomes. Ultimately this will support DMG measuring the impact of their evidence-based improvement initiatives and determine how to best allocate resources for optimal care.
“DuPage Medical Group has long been a leader in using the latest technology to deliver high-quality care. Humedica will enable our physicians to benefit from insights into our patient population, clinical pathways and treatment patterns that haven’t been analyzed in the past,” said Mark Nelson, MD, Family Medicine and EHR Physician champion at DMG.
“We’re impressed with DuPage Medical Group’s ability to integrate analytics from their quality department into the day-to-day practice of their physicians,” said Michael Weintraub, Humedica’s President and CEO. “It is a tremendous opportunity for Humedica to partner with DMG and contribute to both the Humedica MinedShare platform and our clinically focused, disease-specific predictive models to their efforts,” he added.
Anceta, which facilitates data-driven shared learning to improve population health, is excited to have another leading organization in Illinois join the collaborative. “DuPage Medical Group is known for its commitment to data-driven quality, and they have been a major contributor to other AMGA collaboratives,” said John Cuddeback, MD, PhD, Anceta’s Chief Medical Informatics Officer. “DMG’s focus on quality, efficiency, and access illustrates the benefits that patients experience from team-based, coordinated care. We are really looking forward to their contribution to the Anceta collaborative.”
