Deep Dive Analytics
Your practice is under pressure like never before. The moving target that is healthcare reform means that specialty physician practices need more than a coding and billing vendor. If achieving patient care quality measures, improving physician productivity, and maximizing practice reimbursements are all on your mind, HAP’s clinical analytics services should be on your list.
We call our solution Deep Dive Analytics. You’ll call it a game-changer that drives true innovation in patient care. You’ll also find it’s a powerful proof-of-practice-value with your health system partners.
What is healthcare analytics really worth to your practice if the output is not actionable?
That’s the question we answered on day-one when developing Deep Dive Analytics. No vaporware here. No dump-and-run software either. We crushed the cliché of healthcare data analytics and created a real-world, real-time solution for radiology practices that want to do more, and do it better. Here’s how …
Integrated Incidental Findings & Follow-up Process
Patients with incidental findings are too often falling through the cracks. Lung nodules are a good example – and the first challenge we tackled. According to a study published by the JACR, 71% of patients with incidental lung nodule findings DO NOT return for follow-up screening.
Our client, a hospital-based radiology group located near Philadelphia, PA, recognized this issue as a true opportunity to benefit patients and advance the quality improvement goals at the core of the value-based care concept. Working closely with their team, HAP developed a custom application and business process that:
- mines radiology clinical data available in standard formats,
- identifies patients with lung nodules in need of follow-up with a high degree of accuracy via condition-specific algorithms,
- notifies them, and their primary care physicians via mail, to communicate the presence of the nodule and recommend follow-up screening at the appropriate time, and
- measures process efficacy via executed screenings and captured patient condition status.
Incidental findings covered in our solution currently include:
- Lung nodules
- Implanted IVC filters
- Liver, renal, thyroid, and kidney profiles
Where most software-centric healthcare analytics companies drop the ball, we pick it up. Even the most valuable information is effectively worthless if left unused. The problem is having the resources to do something about it. That’s why our integrated solution combines clinical data analytics with an automated business process. What does that mean? We not only identify the incidental findings in need of follow-up, we also execute the mailing of patient and provider notification letters that encourage additional evaluation or imaging – proactive intervention that prevents leakage, saves lives, and supports population health management objectives.
And we’ve got the stats to prove it. Our radiology practice partner saw their average rate of return for lung nodule follow-ups nearly double one year after deploying Deep Dive Analytics. Of those patients who received the notification letters, over 23% had a new or worsening condition.
Practice Productivity and Quality Maximization Module
We believe productivity is about more than just RVUs… That’s why we designed this module to provide one-click access to relevant, actionable intelligence that helps improve a variety of key performance metrics. With features that derive maximum value from your practice data and inform smart practice decisions, we turn the task of practice management into an informed, proactive business function that increases your bottom-line.

HAP Clinical Analytics Services: A Case Study on Lung Nodule Findings & Follow-up Process
In the modern healthcare system, patients with lung nodule findings are still too often falling through the cracks and not getting the follow-up screenings required to mitigate their risks. Our client, Dr. Philip Lim and his colleagues at Radiology Group of Abington, a hospital-based practice located near Philadelphia, PA, recognized this issue as a true opportunity to benefit patients and advance the quality improvement goals at the core of the value-based care concept. Our clinical analytics experts worked with their team to tackle this challenge and achieve these results:
- Nearly doubled the average rate of follow-ups for incidental lung nodule patients
- Added missing quality and care coordination to an at-risk patient population
- Strengthened the working relationship between the radiology practice and their hospital partner.
Practice proactivity can save patient lives. 23% of the lung nodule patients who received our letter notifications and returned for follow-up had new or worsening conditions. HAP’s clinical data analytics solutions identify opportunities for practices to elevate quality of care and increase practice value. And we’re just getting started…
