Optum Launches Optum One, a Health Intelligence Platform

Optum has launched Optum One, a health intelligence platform that brings knowledge drawn from hundreds of millions of patient encounters directly to the fingertips of health care providers. Optum One enables health care providers to analyze data extracted from their electronic medical record (EMR) systems and enriched by claims data and take action on those insights, using intuitive applications connected through a single platform. Advanced predictive models identify gaps in care, help users coordinate care, and compare the real-world efficacy and associated cost of possible treatments. Optum One comes at a key moment in health care when provider reimbursements are increasingly determined by the quality and value of the care they provide overall instead of the volume of individual services they perform. This shift is borne from nationwide efforts to align incentives to achieve the goals of enhanced patient satisfaction, improved population health and reduced health costs. Optum One supports care providers with a series of knowledge and action applications that meet a full range of provider needs, including population and risk analytics, patient engagement and care coordination. Optum One features: an integrated analytics platform that is purposefully built for the health care provider market, with the accurate and integrated data; a database that includes clinical information on nearly 40 million treated patients as well as 20 years of claims data; monthly, it processes 700 million clinical notes, 3.1 billion lab results and more than 1 billion procedures, diagnoses and prescriptions; the ability to deliver analytics insights at the point of care, especially valuable for those ‘morning huddles’ when the opportunity to improve health and lower cost is greatest; modular apps that are seamlessly integrated into one platform; effective, risk-driven, cross-continuum care management; and the ability to facilitate true patient-centric, longitudinal population management that supports value based payment. The Optum One platform and applications are designed to deliver knowledge and enable targeted patient intervention. While they work seamlessly together, they are modular so that health care providers can utilize the applications they need as they move from fee-for-service to fee-for-value.
