THE SITUATION

Cardiovascular disease afflicts more than 11% of the US population and is the leading cause of death for both men and women.  Hospitals and doctors treating these patients face unprecedented challenges driven by increasing volume, disruptive new procedures, greater competition, and the transition to “value-based” care.  To confront these challenges clinical and administrative teams need trusted data and clinically relevant insight. But, because cardiovascular care is highly nuanced, one-size-fits-all analytic solutions lack the precision required to engage clinicians while internal analytics teams are stretched thin, lack domain expertise, and struggle to stay current with changing practice.

THE BIOME SOLUTION

Biome engineers the applications, builds the data, and delivers the analytic insights that hospitals and doctors need to provide high-performance cardiovascular care. Our machine-driven, human-enabled solutions combine our clients’ clinical and financial data with a community-driven library of clinically relevant benchmarks, risk-stratification algorithms, and performance measures. Clients rely on our technology and deep domain expertise to continuously identify high-impact opportunities, align teams, and achieve outcomes that result in satisfied patients, better contracts with payers,  and superior national rankings.

OUR MISSION

We help doctors and hospitals use data to deliver the best possible cardiovascular care to more patients at a lower cost.

HOW IT WORKS

We Drive
Continuous
Improvement

  • Trust
  • Impact
  • Engage
  • Align
  • Perform
  1. Trusted Data

We start by building a trusted clinical and financial fact base for each cardiovascular program using data from our clients’ registries, EMRs, PACs, CVIS and cost accounting systems.

  1. High-Impact Opportunities

Next, our team leverage machine-learning models and proprietary risk algorithms to identify high-impact clinical and financial opportunities within each cardiovascular program for individual doctors, clinical chiefs, service lines, and health systems.

  1. Clinician Engagement

We then build trust in our data and engage practitioners with clinically relevant cohorts, risk-adjustment methods, and targeted benchmarks based on insights into clinical and financial performance drivers.

  1. Aligned Teams

Clinical and administrative leadership then identify intervention opportunities for impacting quality, cost, and national rankings; define improvement priorities; and set clinical and financial targets.

  1. Drive Performance

Clients leverage Biome’s applications and community-driven library of improvement templates, measures, and analytics to implement performance initiatives and track results to ensure sustainable gains in the adoption of best practices.

WHY BIOME

Focus & Expertise

  • We specialize because cardiovascular care is unique and generalized tools and analytics have failed to engage and align clinicians.
  • Our applications enable hospitals to reduce readmissions, bleeding-event rates, and increase the number of same-day discharges.
  • Clients rely on our experience to rapidly asses the impact of emerging therapies and contracting opportunities, and accelerate improvement.

Technology

  • Disease-specific performance data marts that integrate client cost accounting and clinical data.
  • ML-based performance assessment engine that continuously identifies high-value clinical and financial opportunities.
  • Community-driven performance library containing clinical and financial measures, benchmarks, and performance initiatives.

Unique Model

  • We focus on value – not software licenses or billable services.
  • Our fees are fixed, predictable, and justifiable.
  • No friction –  we adapt to your requirements.
