The healthcare industry has reached a stage of unprecedented electronic data wealth, opening up truly longitudinal views into patient populations. For the first time, payers and providers can perform advanced predictive modeling — improving care delivery and promoting wellness at a systemic scale.

But on the path to achieving these experiential goals, these organizations need a partner with a big picture understanding of the healthcare industry — a partner who can help them plan for and manage quality, costs, and data security at every stage of a project.

HighPoint has completed more than 100 informatics projects for clients worldwide, driving business results for payers and providers with an approach that puts data governance first. Operating from established best practices for data quality and master data management, we draw out deep insights that allow our clients to take action and improve outcomes.

DATA INTEGRATION IS EVOLVING

As technology rapidly shifts data integration needs from traditional on-premise ETL and EAI integrations to a mix of cloud and web-based services, healthcare companies must choose an integration partner with a clear vision that spans strategy, implementation, and analytics. HighPoint has helped payers and providers address a broad range of data across multiple business functions.

Utilizing established frameworks for every stage of a data integration initiative, we have consistently implemented solutions that meet our clients’ strategic needs and data governance standards.

HighPoint can review the state of your technologies and your data from all sources to workshop and design a future state for your ETL/EAI capabilities. We’ll assess the external market landscape for emerging tech practices and define a roadmap for reaching these new capabilities.

IMPLEMENTATION SERVICES

Our team of data integration experts can plan, design, build, test, and deploy your data integrations — and provide advanced validation for regulatory compliance where necessary. We can work to implement part of a technology transformation, or to support a larger application deployment.

MIGRATION SERVICES

Data migration is challenging, but HighPoint has extensive experience working with the latest cloud solutions, applying best practices and strict data governance to ensure that information is simultaneously accessible and secure.

Clinical Data Onboarding for Payers

Partnering with multiple high-volume providers is a critical step for payers moving towards accountable care. But how can payers onboard and integrate clinical data with claims, eligibility, and care management data, seamlessly and efficiently?

HighPoint sets up clinical data integration hubs for payer clients. Leveraging leading technology and resources, including an on-boarding team that can help provider partners facilitate data transfer using HL7 or custom interfaces, we can easily standardize, clean, and integrate new data while making it available for internal and external use to meet your strategic needs.

Healthcare Analytics and Data Warehouse

Get out from under your backlog of support tickets — or roll out an approved new care analytics module while under major resource constraints. HighPoint has the combined business intelligence and healthcare experience with payers and providers to reduce risk and improve outcome predictability as you take on new challenges in your business intelligence initiative.

Rapid Information Strategy

Align your business transformation with information strategy and define the investments, timelines, and sequence of events that will deliver on your information investment’s desired outcome. HighPoint’s strategy process examines the dimensions of change which lead to successful program and project outcomes across a spectrum of capabilities and data products necessary to both the teams supplying and supporting them, and their users.

Our strategy engagements lead directly to executable roadmaps, governance and operating models, architectural risk/debt assessments, and discrete project definitions with resource estimates to guide the budgetary and execution stages of their transformation. We deliver tactical recommendations early in the information evolution process to reduce long-term risk and keep our clients on the roadmaps we create.

Technology Labs

Information technology is rapidly shrinking in cost and expanding in capability. That’s why HighPoint provides technology lab services that allow our clients to pilot technologies, develop value-driving use cases, and determine how a particular technology fits within an end-to-end information landscape and value change.

We provide the technical, strategic, and operational guidance to demonstrate how new capabilities can deliver on strategic imperatives better, faster, and at a lower cost.

From operational systems to enterprise data warehouses, data governance and data management has changed into service-oriented and member relationship-centric information building.

Transform your structured and unstructured data into meaningful information with the support of HighPoint’s data management practice. We have designed and delivered data management and analytics initiatives to meet an array of corporate goals, including enterprise-wide, ROI-focused data quality, the assessment and retirement of systems for cost reduction, improved member retention analytics, and proof of technology.

DATA GOVERNANCE AND PROACTIVE DATA QUALITY

At the core of every successful informatics solution — and therefore every service HighPoint provides — is a focus on data governance and data quality.

Our experience in evaluating technology, creating consistent architecture, and standardizing data assets allows us to facilitate and manage data governance programs that enable clarity of ownership and accountability for your business stewards. And with our CARE methodology, we provide a catalog of rules across a broad range of subject areas to ensure data quality and yield measurable return on data investments.
