Enabling Early Intervention for Prostate Cancer in Black Men

By |2022-09-29T09:52:53-04:00September 29th, 2022|Tags: , , , |

Black men face many risk factors for being diagnosed with prostate cancer, including a lack of access to healthcare, racial bias that can cause black men not to seek treatment, socioeconomic status, and delayed care. Yet if prostate cancer is detected at the early stages of development, the survival rate is 99%.4 The study's conclusion is that PSA screenings are not only more effective than scientists thought for the general population but benefit black men more than other races. Due to prostate cancer's prevalence in black men, they should be screened earlier and more frequently to monitor and mitigate their risk.

The Cures Act conundrum — turning expanded data sharing into more effective data usage

The 21st Century Cures Act was designed to give consumers greater access to their own clinical data and further advance interoperability. Yet, while these two goals are laudable, the Act does not make it any easier to get meaningful insights from payer data. This is because so much of the growing mountain of ingested data is unusable that it must be curated and enriched before it can yield anything of value.

Early Bird Catches the Worm: High-Quality Clinical Data Leads to Successful Care Intervention

Incomplete, inaccurate, or delayed data analyses can all negatively impact clinical decision-making, case management, and disease management interventions. Payers looking to identify gaps in care often utilize claims data that can take many months to receive face challenges obtaining accurate high-quality clinical data from their contracted providers. Data curation services, which acquire, standardize, and normalize clinical data, can present health plans with a complete picture of member encounters.

The Demand for Quality Insights and the Promise of Data Curation Services

The demand for accurate and timely insights from a fractured and siloed health ecosystem, spanning payer, provider, and healthcare organization information infrastructures, has never been greater. New technologies and innovations have proven to be a burden on the healthcare system, including new payment models where patient outcomes are being rewarded more than the quantity of services provided. Learn more from this white paper about what you can do to solve the problem.

Managing Clinical Data for FHIR Standards and HEDIS Measures

Transforming raw data into actionable insights is essential for Fast healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) standards and improving HEDIS scores. Learn more from this roadmap on how to achieve scalable efficiencies for managing clinical data at the enterprise level. The strategic value of clinical data is growing significantly for payers, but finding the right types of clinical data and gaining access to it remain challenges in the current healthcare ecosystem.

New Truths Straight from MA Payer Organizations

Verinovum, Inc. recently utilized marketing partner Envision Health to execute a third-party market research study of Medicare Advantage (MA) programs in seven payer organizations of varying sizes and demographics. The goal of the study was to better understand the role and structure of MA programs within different kinds of payer organizations and how these payers and programs obtain and use clinical data for their most pressing needs.

Data quality and successful disease management programming: What’s the connection?

Disease management (DM), which has been around since the 1970s and became more prevalent with the advent of managed care, was designed to improve patient quality of life. By helping to ensure continuity of care and equipping patients with education and resources to better self-manage their conditions, people with chronic disease were shown to have better outcomes than those who did not participate in disease management programs.
