Analytics, Predictive Modeling and Connectivity Solutions Facilitate Rapid Data Transformation in an Era of Accountable Care
VALENCIA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- MZI HealthCare, LLC (MZIHC) (www.mzihc.com), a leading provider of transformative healthcare solutions, today announced the launch of two new products—EZ-ANALYTICS and EZ-CONNECT—at the Western Regional Users Group (WRUG) Conference last week.
“In this era of accountable care and healthcare reform, MZI HealthCare has rolled out two new solutions—EZ-ANALYTICS and EZ-CONNECT—to help enable the rapid transformation needed to meet upcoming clinical, financial and performance requirements,” said NC Murthy, CEO of MZIHC. “These new products provide organizations with advanced analytics, predictive modeling and connectivity tools to understand the health status and medical needs of designated patient populations, so they can better coordinate care and enhance quality and performance.”
EZ-ANALYTICS is a sophisticated healthcare data warehouse, analytics and predictive modeling solution that enables healthcare organizations—and accountable care organizations (ACOs) in particular—to consolidate clinical and financial data from multiple sources to a single enterprise solution, which they can use to benchmark themselves against peers. With data aggregated in one place, organizations then have access to a complete 360-degree view of their healthcare data.
EZ-ANALYTICS offers a full-spectrum of analytics and predictive modeling capabilities. It has the power to analyze data in multiple ways, perform flexible slice-and-dice reporting, and predict utilization and costs. For example, EZ-ANALYTICS enables organizations to analyze the chronic conditions and co-morbidities that exist in given populations. Using sophisticated data models, they can predict the healthcare needs, utilization trends and costs associated with populations—and even drill down to episodes of care, as well as profiles of patients and providers. In addition, EZ-ANALYTICS tracks and reports on comparative benchmarks and the 65 quality performance standards required under current ACO rules.
“MZI HealthCare has an in-depth understanding of the financial risk associated with delivering healthcare,” said Greg Gootee, product manager at MZIHC. “As a result, EZ-ANALYTICS includes a unique contracting module, which can help ACOs, hospitals, payers and other organizations to better negotiate contracts and minimize the financial risk associated with a given patient population and improve the opportunity for rewards through shared savings. Clients will also have the business intelligence to design better delivery models that improve the efficiency and cost of care, as well as the patient’s care experience—helping them to meet the ‘triple aims’ outlined by the Institute for Healthcare Improvement.”
MZI HealthCare has also launched EZ-CONNECT, an out-of-the-box connectivity solution that facilitates the interoperability and information sharing necessary for care coordination, analytics and performance measures. EZ-CONNECT offers more than 160 plug-and-play connectors—a number that is continually growing. With this tool, organizations can easily aggregate data from multiple sources and seamlessly exchange information between payers, providers and partners.
With drag-and-drop mapping capabilities, EZ-CONNECT also gives organizations the power to transform data to and from various formats—such as Health Level 7 (HL7), EDI X12 (the current standard in electronic data interchange), UB-04 (a CMS required form) and many other formats. This accelerates an organization’s ability to comply with regulatory and reporting requirements. EZ-CONNECT not only streamlines information flow, but also facilitates the creation of complete and sophisticated process flows—from initial data receipt to end output in various applications, such as electronic medical records (EMRs), practice management systems (PMS) and others.
“With the addition of EZ-ANALYTICS and EZ-CONNECT, MZI HealthCare is building a suite of solutions to help organizations thrive in today’s environment of coordinated, accountable care. The new solutions are highly flexible to meet client needs and work seamlessly with our other EZ solutions—particularly EZ-CAP, our claims administrative processing solution, and EZ-CARE, our care management solution—to empower healthcare organizations to deliver unique models of quality, affordable care,” said Gootee.
