Mayo Clinic Health System is well-known for delivering quality care among its 1200 providers who work in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa. The size of the clinic, however, is in marked contrast to its data analytics approach, which revolves around a measured, step-wise approach. Mayo’s Alan Krumholz, M.D., who serves as director of quality outcomes, described Mayo’s program at Health Data Management’s Healthcare Analytics Symposium in Chicago. “You need to focus on actionable opportunities,” he said. “You can’t cure hunger overnight.”

Mayo has deployed an analytics platform, from Humedica, which works in conjunction with its Cerner electronic health records system. Developed in conjunction with the American Medical Group Association, Humedica offers the ability to aggregate clinical data and parse it against various quality metrics. In addition, Mayo can compare its performance and patient demographics against other large medical groups in AMGA also in the Humedica database.
