CLOUD COMPUTING FORUM: A HIMSS EVENT
Las Vegas, NV - March 5, 2018
Accountable Health Partners (AHP) is an accountable care organization (ACO) that includes a large urban academic medical center and 48 independent community primary care practices that care for more than one million patients in the greater Rochester region of New York. As AHP's director of information management, LaRon Rowe knows first-hand the power of a cloud-based data repository and analytics platform to support population health management initiatives.
AHP uses the cloud to consolidate and aggregate millions of data points. AHP’s cloud-based population health platform analyzes the data to calculate hundreds of clinical quality measures, cost utilization, risk scores and clinical gaps. Ultimately, this intelligence helps AHP’s physicians make better decisions and support stronger collaborations with health plans on risk based contracts and pay for performance quality programs.
LaRon is the lead for AHP’s IT strategy, and in this session, he’ll discuss how cloud computing enables IT solutions across disparate organizations and vendors, and breaks down data silos. Additionally, as he’ll explain, this is an “easy win” and faster compared to migrating to a single EMR platform.
