The Problem

Lab testing is the single highest volume medical activity within a health system yet 21% of diagnostic tests are misused or even overlooked. The challenge is two-fold: 1) To identify the root cause of inefficient or wasteful practices that include high-cost, low-value, duplicative, and antiquated test ordering and 2) To identify missed opportunities to deliver the right test to the right patient at the right time in order to avoid rehospitalizations, ER visits, and other consequences.

The Solution

As part of the world’s leading precision health platform, hc1 PrecisionDx Advisor™ (PDx Advisor) is a comprehensive solution that includes both strategic guidance and cloud-based technology that takes the guesswork out of launching an effective utilization program.

Are you optimizing your use of laboratory testing?

Delivering the right test to the right patient can be challenging. What’s even more complex is understanding where waste is occurring and where needed testing is being missed.

With lab data siloed and scattered across hospitals and information systems, gaining access to meaningful insights can take months or even years.

Keeping up with the day-to-day operations gives you little time to make an impact on identifying and improving testing use.

How do I reduce waste within my health system?
How do I improve patient care and practice precision testing?
How do I track and address clinical variation?
How do I educate physicians about optimized ordering practices?

We have the answer: hc1 PrecisionDx Advisor™

Deliver precision diagnostics with data-driven insights

Over 2.3 trillion gigabytes of data are generated every year in healthcare. With that data housed in separate and often siloed locations, a method to ingest, organize, and normalize it is necessary to derive meaningful and actionable insights.

With the right data and insights into ordering practices that may include high-cost, low-value, and antiquated tests, your health system can effectively take action that ensures the right tests for the right patients. 

Gain a clear view from multiple angles

With a simple HL7 feed we easily integrate with all of your LIS data sources meaning you can access information about testing patterns throughout the health system, including inpatient, outpatient, and reference labs.

Align clinical guidelines with utilization goals

hc1 PrecisionDx Advisor categorizes testing into general types, such as repetitive or demographic. Your health system can edit or add guidelines within each type as new tests and recommendations are needed.

Monitor testing trends in real-time

The hc1 PrecisionDx Advisor data analysis engine feeds information about tests ordered to easy-to-use dashboards. From there, you can filter by the general type of testing, compare ordering trends for different locations, and track progress to ensure the right test is administered to the right patient every time.

Target stewardship efforts

Drill down into pre-built reports to see which providers are ordering tests outside of established guidelines. Use this information to tailor programs directed at the changes that will have the most impact for your health system and the patients within it.
