What You Should Know:

Persistent Systems, a leading digital engineering and enterprise modernization company, and Microsoft today announced the launch of an innovative Generative AI-powered Population Health Management (PHM) Solution. This collaborative effort aims to revolutionize healthcare delivery by identifying patients’ at risk and providing personalized care interventions, ultimately improving patient outcomes and reducing costs.

A Data-Driven Approach to Value-Based Care

Aligned with value-based care models, the solution goes beyond traditional PHM solutions by leveraging Social Determinants of Health (SDoH). By analyzing Electronic Health Records (EHRs) and other data sources, the solution identifies factors like housing, income, and food security that impact patient health and healthcare utilization. This comprehensive approach allows for:

  • Early identification of high-risk patients: Predicting who needs the most care helps providers proactively manage health conditions and prevent costly interventions.
  • Personalized care recommendations: Based on SDoH data and clinical information, the solution recommends targeted interventions like community programs or social support services.
  • Improved patient outcomes: Timely interventions can lead to fewer hospital visits, readmissions, and overall better health for patients.
  • Reduced healthcare costs: By optimizing resource allocation and preventing avoidable complications, the solution helps providers control costs.

Generative AI: Extracting Insights from Unstructured Data

Unlike other PHM solutions, Persistent’s offering utilizes Generative AI to extract insights from unstructured clinical notes. This innovative approach offers several advantages:

  • Higher accuracy: Generative AI can understand complex medical language more effectively than traditional NLP techniques.
  • Improved scale: The solution can handle large amounts of data efficiently, making it suitable for large healthcare organizations.
  • Increased compliance: The solution adheres to data privacy regulations and ensures patient confidentiality.

Availability and Impact

The Persistent PHM Solution is now available on Azure Marketplace, making it readily accessible to healthcare organizations worldwide. This innovative solution has the potential to significantly impact the healthcare landscape by:

  • Transforming data into actionable insights.
  • Empowering healthcare providers to deliver personalized care.
  • Improving patient outcomes and reducing costs.

“Addressing the causes of negative healthcare outcomes is increasingly understood as a critical component of any PHM program. With this innovative Solution, built on Persistent’s deep domain expertise and differentiated frameworks along with Microsoft Azure OpenAI Service and Dynamics 365 Customer Insights, we are identifying care access and health equity issues by optimizing enterprise capacities and ensuring cost-effectiveness. We’re confident that through actionable and trackable insights and personalized intervention, this Solution will significantly improve physician’s and caregiver’s decision-making to enhance patient experience and overall care quality,” said Ganesh Nathella, Senior Vice President & General Manager – Global Lead, HLS Business, Persistent.
