Enhance Health Care Delivery Systems

Reduce clinical variation with Care Intellect™

​The opportunity to measure variation across patient encounters within a health care organization is more important today than ever before. Unnecessary variations in the provision of care not only impacts quality, but cost as well. Developed within Deloitte's Health Care Consulting practice, Care Intellect™ is a provider performance improvement analytics solution that is designed to manage variations across patient encounters, integrating leading evidence-based practices to improve patient outcomes and discover related cost-saving opportunities.​

Enhance Care Delivery Systems

​With the acceleration toward new models of care, it's imperative that health care organizations understand the true cost of care.​

The market is accelerating toward new care models

​MACRA mandates, rising costs, and declining reimbursements are pushing earnings down in the health care industry. Populations are also shifting towards segments with lower reimbursement (e.g., Medicare, Medicaid). Providers and other health care stakeholders should consider transitioning towards a sustainable value-based care model. Success under new models will require more sophisticated approaches to clinical improvement​.

Clinical effectiveness and efficiency through Care Intellect™

Unnecessary variations in the provision of care and its impact on cost and quality is not a new concern. There are well-documented differences in length of stay, outcomes, and cost of care. To manage value, health care providers must understand the true cost of care. However, measuring actual costs or how much time care processes require can be a challenge.

Unlock value and transform care delivery through Deloitte's Care Intellect™

Care Intellect™ is a provider performance improvement analytics solution that is designed to deliver higher-value care by managing variations across patient encounters, integrating leading evidence-based practices to improve patient outcomes, and discovering related cost-saving opportunities.

The team and tools gather information and insights on clinical costs and domain-level drivers of variation and then incorporates the new information into Care Intellect. The solution applies cognitive analytics to drive deeper insights to inform decision-making for the redesign teams.

Care standardization and variation reduction

Health care providers have significant opportunities to generate value and improve outcomes through care standardization and variation reduction. Deloitte's Care Intellect uses analytics and benchmarking to identify service lines with the greatest areas of opportunity.

Common areas of opportunity include:
  • Orthopedics 
  • Cardiac services
  • Women and children's health
  • Oncology
  • Medical and surgical

     

Once areas of opportunity have been identified, Deloitte's 16-week care redesign process brings together stakeholders from across the organization to develop a set of protocols, tools, and enabling technologies required to deliver best-in-class, efficient care.

Creating a patient-centered ecosystem of care

Care Intellect puts patients at the center of care delivery by creating a sustainable environment of continuous improvement within the organization. Our approach achieves impact through setting up governance, building organizational capabilities, investing in enabling technology, and using sophisticated analytics to inform decision-making.
