  • Thursday, March 21, 2013

As an ACO or Shared Saving participant you have to manage your population’s risk to improve outcomes and reduce costs. In this webinar, attendees will learn how organizations, such the ONC sponsored Colorado Beacon Consortium (CBC), are using IndiGO, a clinical decision support tool, to optimize the cost and quality objectives in their population-based programs.

David Eddy, MD, PhD, a pioneer in evidence-based medicine, will demonstrate how IndiGO uses individualized guidelines to identify patients at risk and calculate the benefit from medication and lifestyle changes. Sharing the results from a pilot study in Hawaii, he will illustrate how use of IndiGO increased adherence dramatically, and showed a positive ROI for KP.

After the introduction, Patrick Gordon MPA, Associate Vice President of Rocky Mountain Health Plans, will discuss how IndiGO is currently being used at the point-of-care to improve outcomes and reduce costs. Patrick will also discuss how IndiGO is being used to support the Colorado Beacon Consortium’s efforts surrounding CMMI’s Comprehensive Primary Care Initiative.

David Kendrick, MD, MPH, CEO of MyHealth Access Network will discuss their implementation of IndiGO. MyHealth’s health information exchange platform serves an entire region with dozens of health systems and thousands of doctors, and provides risk assessments updated daily on more than 800,000 people.

Archimedes, Inc.’s IndiGO (Individualized Guidelines and Outcomes) is a decision support tool that analyzes person-specific health information either provided by the individual or drawn from an electronic health record. It uses equations derived from, and validated against, national datasets and clinical trials. It incorporates clinical evidence related to diseases, behaviors, risk factors, and interventions. The results generated by IndiGO provide a graphical representation of an individual’s risk of conditions or diseases, and the effects of interventions that are most effective in reducing those risks. IndiGO can be used at the point-of- care, involving the patient in the decision making process and improving collaboration between patient and provider. IndiGO was developed by healthcare modeling organization Archimedes, Inc. Archimedes’ core technology – the Archimedes Model – is a large-scale, clinically realistic, trial-validated, mathematical model of health and healthcare. The Archimedes Model is continually validated by comparing the results of the model to outcomes seen in real multi-national clinical trials and epidemiological studies. Archimedes, a Kaiser Permanente Innovation, is based in San Francisco, California.
