We help you keep pace with healthcare technology innovations and industry trends

Healthcare data is complex and heavily influenced by the changing healthcare policy landscape and industry data standards.  In the new value-based payment environment,  timely data must be in the hands of in the hands of clinicians, case managers, and leadership to achieve quality goals and pursue clinical interventions. Innovations such as natural language processing and artificial intelligence have moved beyond the hypothetical and present opportunities to reduce administrative burden and costs while improving care. 

Meanwhile, increased interoperability means that patient data is flowing, for the first time, across traditionally impenetrable data silos.  Modern cloud and analytics standards underpin new capabilities to securely integrate disparate healthcare data streams.  At Keywell, we’re excited to stay on the cutting edge and partner with you in your analytics and innovation journey.

[Keywell] was able to help us inventory our data in legacy systems and parse out data that previously had been challenging to obtain to better understand how our product was bringing value to our customers. Separately, Keywell prototyped new dashboards in a platform new to us and was able to integrate data that was previously unavailable. We valued working with Ashley for her healthcare industry experience, technical knowledge, and ability to help us strategize at a high level while bringing immediate value to the organization.

[Keywell] helped us assess our early analytics strategy and data needs and subsequently helped us revamp our reporting systems to improve our team and customer analytics. We were able to better quantify the impact of our platform in connecting individuals with social care needs to organizations that can help. Keywell was uniquely capable of applying advanced analytics methods to our data, developing a model that combined findhelp and population health data to demonstrate predicted improvement of healthcare outcomes with increased access to healthy food. Keywell also helped us develop interactive dashboards that we display on our public website for researchers and customers to analyze search volume and trends. I would highly recommend Keywell as an analytics services partner.

Tom Fisk is wonderfully reliable, insightful, efficient, and effective. In our experience working together, I was grateful for and impressed by Tom’s careful listening and thoughtful contributions to our work. He is an expert in his field and wonderfully collaborative. Time and again, Tom demonstrated a highest-level mastery of the integrated technology domain, related markets, and equally high-level skill in communicating with other organizational leaders. If I were to get the chance to work again with Tom Fisk, I’d take it in a heartbeat.

Ashley did an outstanding job in leading the data integration for the Medicaid program and the Women and Infant Children (WIC) program project. She showed excellent communication and presentation skills. Ashley prepared and presented the project findings and overview to all levels of HHS IT, Medicaid and WIC program management and executives. This project was considered a complete success for HHS and the CDA team. Ashley was consistently professional and easy to work with throughout this project and I, and HHS, would not hesitate to work with her again.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our team has deep expertise in claims data (medical, facility, pharmacy), electronic health record data, and industry value sets such as NPPES provider data that are often used in conjunction with these datasets.  We can help normalize with healthcare ontologies and build in groupers, metrics, and enrichments to prepare data for analysis. 

Our experience also includes Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) data and social services resource ontologies for available providers and services in the healthcare and human services domain.  In the course of our engagements we often work with these datasets and customer datasets such as digital health app data.  

Yes, we bring data science and AI trends to our client engagements where it is practical and expected to provide meaningful value.  AI will bring transformation to the healthcare industry and presents opportunities to reduce costs and improve care.

Our team has worked with the largest healthcare claims datasets and have experience working with big-data cluster computing technologies that often have a different workflow than analytics with smaller datasets.

Yes, we have experience working with data from multiple EHR vendors and are familiar with common normalization challenges and solutions.  We can help you get more value out of EHR data analysis through normalization and enrichment (including labeling data using natural language processing).

We have experience working on both the payer and provider side of payment model implementation.  Analytics are crucial to assessing VBP opportunity, implementing programs that reduce cost and improve quality for targeted patient populations, and accurately monitoring shared savings for payment.  

All of our team members are trained in management of protected health information – it’s in our professional DNA.  We typically sign a Business Associate Agreement but primarily work inside the virtual walls of our healthcare clients, keeping all data within client systems.  If hosting is required, we will jointly ensure that an approved, HIPAA-compliant hosting solution is implemented.
