AMGA offers robust resources for data analysis and implementation science. We assist members in improving population health, using comparative benchmarking to discover opportunities and predictive analytics to identify high-risk patients. We drive discovery and sharing of best practices, and we help members translate them into practice. Through a partnership with Optum®, AMGA Analytics has access to an unparalleled clinical database comprising longitudinal electronic health record (EHR) and claims data across multiple health systems for research purposes.
Our analytics team looks for hidden trends and clinical opportunities that may not be apparent when examining individual organizational data in isolation. As the healthcare environment shifts to value-based care and our members become more focused on population health management and accountable care, AMGA offers advanced data analytics, such as predictive risk modeling to identify at- and high-risk patients. Relying on implementation science (how healthcare organizations get things done), we help members invest in small, targeted changes that lead to significant improvements in population health. Our Collaborative for Performance Excellence (CPX) also helps members improve population health through comparative clinical analytics accomplished in partnership with Optum®.
AMGA is at the forefront of recent research trends placing greater emphasis on the science of delivery and implementation. At least 80% of AMGA research projects seek answers to tough questions through research conducted with AMGA member organizations in complex clinical delivery and operational settings. Learn more.
Find out how your organization compares to other top performers across the nation by participating in AMGA’s benchmarking activities. Our analytics team collects and reports benchmarking data for the Collaborative for Performance Excellence, AMGA Foundation Best Practices Learning Collaboratives, and the national Diabetes: Together 2 Goal® Chronic Care Challenge campaign. Benchmarking leads to discovery of best practices as we investigate how and why high performers do better and translate key research findings for use by other AMGA members.
Data Management [+]
AMGA Analytics brings rigor to performance accountability underlying success of the AMGA Foundation’s Best Practices Collaboratives and Diabetes: Together 2 Goal® campaign. AMGA Analytics handles all aspects of data reporting associated with AMGA quality initiatives, from the development of performance measure specifications, to the creation of a secure, interactive web portal, the production of benchmarking reports, and providing support for members in resolving data anomalies.
Quality Measurement [+]
AMGA Analytics supports the National Quality Forum’s “measure incubator.” AMGA works with National Quality Forum, OptumLabs, PCPI, Discern Health, and AMGA members to test potential quality performance measures. By leveraging Optum® data assets and involving members in the measure testing process, AMGA Analytics helps to calibrate performance indicators that may ultimately lead to payment incentives that align with real-world clinic settings and improved population health.
