For more technology news, you can view the entire newsletter or our newsletter archive.
ProHealth Care announced that it has become the first health care system to use Epic’s new Cogito data warehouse as a tool for population health management. Cogito allows health systems to combine patient care information from Epic with information from other electronic medical record systems and other data sources.
ProHealth is using Cogito to converge data sources and create physician profiles, based on 54 clinical quality metrics, which set the stage for enhancing preventive care and improving the management of chronic diseases. Through the reports, physicians also can see how their clinical management compares with the care provided by other physicians in their specialty.
