Customer profile

  • This project was delivered for a healthcare provider that makes patients successful in therapies through the individual attention of skilled nurses and moving to well-equipped small facilities. The provider guarantees effective care and fully covers insurance if patients are readmitted back to the hospital.

Business Goals

  • Reduce the number of readmissions
  • Upgrade care management operations

Challenge

  • One readmission costs ~$20 000 for the healthcare provider. Some patients have 11 readmissions during a 90-day episode, totaling ~$220 000 loss.
  • Nurses are overloaded and need to prioritize patient care. One nurse can have ~400 beds.

Solution

  • 6 years of medical history records and machine learning tools were used to uncover reasons, predict and prevent readmissions.
  • 3 groups of patients have been identified according to the readmission risk rate.
  • Detected readmission reasons became the foundation for personalized health plans.
  • Each group of patients gets a target health plan to reduce readmission risks.
  • Each patient is tracked by predictive AI models and allocated to one of the risk cohorts in real-time.
  • Nurses get push notifications about patient risks.
  • Nurses can add patient notes taken into account by the AI service.

Impact

  • In 90 days of the A/B testing period, the number of readmissions dropped by 32% in the experimental group nursed with the AI service, compared to the control group under ordinary care.
  • Recalculated to the number of patients, the savings were ~$8 000 000 for the observation period (90 days).
