IT solutions distributor Avnet Technology Solutions has announced the first two modules for its Healthcare Analytics Platform.

Available exclusively through its channel partners, Avnet’s modules are designed to accelerate the integration of medical, operational, and financial data from multiple IT systems to supply healthcare providers with a single, unified and secure view of patient information. Moreover, the modules are meant to identify patterns among patients to reduce readmissions and improve prevention-oriented population health management.

“Analytic technologies have the potential to dramatically improve patient treatment and empower healthcare organizations to personalize patient care plans,” says Patrick Stewart, vice president and general manager, IT Solutions for Avnet Services. “Avnet created highly-specialized modules for our Healthcare Analytics Platform to assist healthcare providers in quickly analyzing volumes of data to pinpoint specific patterns for their patients, which can be used to reduce risk factors both during and after a visit.”

Data Analysis Features
The new modules feature dashboards, reports, and alerts to help manage:

  • Readmissions—The module enables healthcare providers to analyze data across all of their systems to identify trends retrospectively that have resulted in patient readmissions. This historical data can be used to identify risk factors during a patient’s visit, enabling the physician to apply special protocols if needed.
  • Population Health—This module will give healthcare providers a tool to understand how best to apply their patient resources by combining disease type with demographics and other patient information. The data will help healthcare providers offer more patient-centric care, increase patient engagement, enable a collaborative approach to intervention, and measure outcomes.

The Healthcare Analytics Platform

Avnet’s Healthcare Analytics Platform runs on HP’s HAVEn big data architecture. It delivers the ability to rapidly integrate systems across multiple operational and clinical areas, including cardiology, oncology, orthopedics, geriatrics and neurosciences. This integration of data and business analytics helps to create a cohesive view of a patient, regardless of where the data is stored within a healthcare provider’s infrastructure.
