Why You Should Invest in Upcycling Clinical Data

Upcycled Data Drives Value

At Diameter Health, we are motivated to accelerate the use of high-quality clinical data to improve health and make our healthcare system more efficient and less wasteful. Our technology delivers what we call “Upcycled DataTM” from raw data sourced from EHRs, HIEs, and labs. Upcycled Data conforms to standards for encoding and exchange. It is enriched with metadata and consolidated so it can be easily searched and consumed by both machines and humans. By deploying Upcycled Data into clinical and administrative workflows, our customers and partners achieve measurable clinical value for individuals and populations, as well as significant operational efficiencies.

In this blog post, we will outline some of how upcycled clinical data drives value. In subsequent posts, we will provide details on how to identify priorities for Upcycled Data within your organization, and examples of return on investment. Be sure to subscribe below so you don’t miss out!

There are two key ways our technology drives value: (1) accelerating the use of clinical data as a strategic asset, which customers use to improve health outcomes and optimize revenue, and (2) leveraging our automated technology for normalization, enrichment, and synthesis of data from multiple sources to reduce costs, relieve staff burden, and drive innovation and outcomes.

So, what does that mean for individuals and organizations? Here are just a few examples:

“To use clinical data effectively to inform processes such as care coordination and utilization management, it must be both syntactically interoperable (conforming structure) as well as semantically interoperable (conforming content). To achieve semantic interoperability, systems must be able to exchange data with unambiguous, shared meaning. For example, medication name, dosage and delivery modality must be consistent to support medical necessity decisions.”

They further counsel organizations to:

“Collaborate with provider partners to achieve the data quality needed to support your agreed-on use-case applications and address any gaps that the analysis attributes to clinical workflows. Due to the clinical expertise this process demands, we strongly recommend that you seek expert assistance from a vendor to normalize clinical data.”*
