Boston Scientific, Accenture Launch Data-Driven Health Platform
Care management capabilities track how patients are diagnosed, treated and monitored, as well as their ongoing vital signs and risk analysis.Medical tech solutions specialist Boston Scientific and professional services specialist Accenture announced the development of a cloud-based, data-driven digital health solution for hospitals. The solution, known as Advantics Care Pathway Transformation, is designed to enable providers to make more proactive and informed decisions based on insights into the patient population, ultimately improving the care a patient experiences from hospital stay through post-discharge care and in-home support. Advantics uses Accenture’s analytics insights platform, which provides actionable insights into care coordination and patient population health patterns. "The growth of value-based care and integrated care models, and the emergence of digital health and analytics are becoming more important to understand as they represent opportunities to improve and personalize the delivery of healthcare to patients," Jeff Elton, managing director for Accenture’s strategy and life sciences division, told eWEEK. "Accenture, a strong provider of health IT, has advanced analytics capabilities. Boston Scientific’s Care Pathway Transformation solution uses Accenture’s proprietary analytics platform. It has been tailored for insight into patients with heart failure."
Elton explained the plan is to expand the solution to additional chronic cardiovascular disease states as the company gains additional experience in the marketplace.
