Intermountain Generating Population Health Data, Revenue
The second healthcare toolset Deloitte and Intermountain have launched this year applies treatment and outcomes across an entire population of patients, and is able to focus on specific therapeutic areas. Licensing the data is a revenue stream.
Deloitte Health Informatics (DHI) and Salt Lake City-based Intermountain Healthcare are expanding their population health analytics tools. The organizations announced their collaboration earlier this year to leverage Intermountain's vast healthcare data warehouse for insight into population health.
PopulationMiner, the newest analytic tool, launched in mid October. According to a statement from Peter Haug, director of Intermountain's Homer Warner Center for Informatics Research, the data generated with PopulationMiner will "provide insights into a broad range of medical conditions and clinical care."
This is the second healthcare toolset Deloitte and Intermountain have launched this year. In June, they unveiled OutcomesMiner, which analyzes the relationships between healthcare conditions and outcomes for a patient.
PopulationMiner is slightly different in that it applies treatment and outcomes across an entire population of patients, such as women over 40 years old, asthma patients, etc.
