MCG Health, part of the Hearst Health network, has successfully piloted its new machine learning solution, Indicia for Effective Focus, and it is now available for licensing. MCG is partnering with five major hospital systems for continued development and enhancement of this solution: Avera McKennan Hospital, Baptist Health System, Erlanger Health System, Franciscan Alliance, and IU Health.
Indicia for Effective Focus prioritises utilisation management worklists based on the probability of appropriate patient placement, as well as the potential negative financial impact due to untimely decision making. The platform leverages MCG’s extensive clinical evidence base, real-time data from the EHR (electronic health record), and machine learning technology to guide the case prioritisation.
One benefit of this solution is the ability to identify opportunities earlier in the hospital stay to reduce friction associated with unnecessary denials. This can help relieve cumbersome workflows resulting from incorrect admission orders.
To build on the early success of the solution, MCG is offering the first year of licensing at no charge to the first 20 customers who sign a multi-year contract by December 31, 2020. In addition, these selected clients will have an opportunity to join an advisory council on data science solutions led by MCG. The purpose of this council is to guide additional, important features that will be built into the solution as its development continues.
