Update to Physician Loyalty: Storyboards Now Included

In case you missed the earlier announcement, Physician Pathway is now comprised of two tools: Physician Patterns and Physician Loyalty.

    • Physician Patterns shows a physician liaison where leakage is occurring.
    • Physician Loyalties shows where physicians are treating their cases.

Together, these tools provide focused intelligence around physician and provider relationships and uncover physician behavior in your market.

One of the enhancements you will find with Physician Loyalty is the inclusion of Storyboards, which allows you to quickly build in-app presentations to facilitate your next physician strategy session.

ICD-10 Diagnosis and Procedure Dataset Updates and DRG Definition Improvement

By Morgan Atkins

The Stratasan team is continuously looking for ways to improve our customers’ experiences and add value. With the switch to ICD-10, many healthcare organizations were tasked with a plethora of new codes to understand and define into main and sub-product lines. One of our recent initiatives has been to update our ICD-10 diagnosis and procedure definitions so that customers are no longer subjected to large chunks of data falling into the “undefined” category. Through this process, it was determined that our previous ICD-10 definition nomenclature could use some refinement as well. We decided to start fresh with new definition categories to create a uniform analysis experience.

While updating ICD-10 definitions, we recognized our DRG definitions needed to follow a similar naming structure so that users could have uniform analyses. We took the opportunity to also revamp our DRG definitions so that we would have cohesive naming conventions across all code-types.

We are happy to report that this update is complete and that current Stratasan product line definitions will be updated on March 1st. (more…)
