Policy Development and Decision-Making

Policy Development and decision-making

Data provided by Akrivia SynapseTM can play a significant role in healthcare policy development and decision making by providing valuable data and insights

Here are some ways our consultancy team can support policy development and decision-making:

Health data analytics

The Akrivia team has access to a vast amount of patient data that can be analysed to identify trends, patterns, and variations in healthcare delivery and outcomes. By analysing structured and unstructured EHR data, policymakers can gain a comprehensive understanding of healthcare utilisation, costs, patient outcomes, and disparities, which can inform evidence-based policy development.

Quality measurements and performance monitoring

By leveraging Akrivia SynapseTM data, policymakers can measure key performance indicators, track quality metrics, and evaluate the impact of policy interventions on clinical outcomes, patient safety, and adherence to clinical guidelines.

Identifying gaps in care

By analysing EHR data, researchers can help policymakers identify disparities in access to care, variations in treatment outcomes, and areas where interventions or policy changes are needed to improve patient outcomes and population health.

Evaluating policy effectiveness

Akrivia SynapseTM can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of healthcare policies and interventions. By comparing pre- and post-policy implementation data from EHRs, policymakers can assess the impact of specific policies on healthcare utilisation, patient outcomes, healthcare costs, and population health, allowing for evidence-based policy refinement.

Population health management

EHRs provide population-level data that can support population health management initiatives. Researchers can analyse data through Akrivia SynapseTM to identify population health needs, target interventions for specific populations, and evaluate the impact of population health initiatives on health outcomes, healthcare utilisation, and costs.

Public health surveillance

By analysing aggregated and de-identified EHR data, researchers can identify emerging health concerns to inform the allocation of resources to address public health challenges.

Health information exchange and interoperability

The comprehensive data provided by Akrivia SynapseTM can deliver a more accurate and holistic view of healthcare utilization, patient outcomes, and healthcare system performance, supporting evidence-based policy development.

Policy impact assessment

By evaluating the data captured in EHRs, researchers can identify unintended consequences, address implementation challenges, and refine policies to optimize their effectiveness useful for policy makers.
