WESTMINSTER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Leading health and productivity company ReedGroup® today is announcing that its industry leading MDGuidelines® Population Database recently tripled in size, making it the largest and most accurate tool for improving health and financial outcomes among individuals experiencing disability.
The MDGuidelines Population Database now includes more than 15 million real-world illness and injury case claims, allowing clinical and business leaders to measure how their patient populations compare against broader population benchmarks. The Population Database also serves as a source for advanced analytics, delivering highly personalized and accurate estimates of the amount of time it takes for an individual to return to activity after illness or injury. (All data is used on the aggregate level and no individual data or information is ever shared.)
With its increase to more than 15 million records, MDGuidelines now offers the richest diversification of disability case data in the industry, providing analytics and insights based on medical code, length of disability, comorbidities, age, gender, industry code, program type and healthcare costs. This robust set of data enables clinicians to be more precise in predicting return to activity outcomes and empowers business leaders with data to identify areas of opportunity to improve care and reduce costs.
“Our customers rely on MDGuidelines to help improve health and financial outcomes for their employee and patient populations,” said Joe Guerriero, Senior Vice President, MDGuidelines. “Our Population Database allows these organizations to benchmark return-to-activity performance, isolate areas for improvement, and increase the quality of patient care and deliver it at lower cost.”
The Population Database serves as the foundation of ReedGroup’s complete clinical decision support solution, MDGuidelines, which combines clinical practice guidelines, disability durations estimates, a drug formulary, predictive analytics, and other tools into an integrated solution for case managers and clinicians.
Containing both short-term disability and worker’s compensation cases, the MDGuidelines Population Database has been in production since 2005, and is managed by ReedGroup’s team of data scientists, epidemiologists, data architects, and biostatisticians. The data warehouse contains more than 12,000 unique healthcare diagnoses.
