Heather Wood from NE DHHS talks about Partnership with H4T on Data Management, Integration, and Analytics platform at the State Health IT Connect Summit
The State of Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Division of Behavioral Health (DBH) has awarded a contract to provide a custom built, centralized data system (CDS) which will allow DBH to review, monitor, and report on programmatic, administrative and fiscal accountability functions with all DBH and Regional Behavioral Health Authorities’ contracted providers. The ultimate goal of the project is to provide a CDS that both the State and its providers and contractors can utilize to reduce duplicate efforts, streamline workflow and improve quality and continuity of care.
The COMPASS Analytics Platform will serve as a central utility to the Region V Systems administration and its members. Dashboard capabilities will be used to compare services, quality and efficiency metrics at the aggregate and individual provider level, allowing Region V Systems members to identify outcome measures and opportunities for more effective care. Additionally, easy to use self-service reporting and dashboards tools are being deployed and made available to the providers for further data discovery, ad hoc data requests, and data sharing.
H4 Technology has partnered with Nebraska Health Network to provide technical assistance in fulfilling their database, integration and analytics strategy for the Accountable Care Organization.
The Nebraska Health Network is a partnership between Nebraska Medicine, Methodist Health System featuring a broad network of over 1200 affiliated specialists and primary care physicians.
H4 Technology and UNeMed partnership could lead to more productive deals for software-based biomedical innovations developed at the University of Nebraska Medical Center and Nebraska Medicine.
H4 Technology, an Omaha-based software and analytics firm, entered a joint licensing agreement with Nebraska Medicine and UNeMed, the technology transfer arm of UNMC, to further develop a data-based management program for preventing and treating pressure ulcers—commonly known as bed sores. If the pressure ulcer application, called the Nebraska Matrix, progresses as expected, then H4 and UNeMed will likely expand the partnership to include similar UNMC inventions, officials said.
