The quality of your data determines the effectiveness of your decisions. We’ll make sure you have the insights necessary for successful operation. Using more than 15 years’ experience, we develop and refine consistent, predictable data to support healthcare policy development.
We collect the data and metrics that allow decision makers to see patterns and track trends. Our analysts can help interpret the data to help produce effective standards for benchmarking and performance metrics.
We conduct audits and studies to provide healthcare management and providers with timely insight. Our analyses and recommendations support rapid, effective action.
We can also help improve technical performance. For example, our auditors assist healthcare staff in developing coding compliance plans for both individual clinics and military treatment facilitates (MTFs). We are skilled in identifying weak coding practices and system integration issues. Our analysts then make recommendations and assist in their implementation, applying a process that promotes open communication between clinics, providers, auditors and facilities.
STI has provided data analysis and policy development support to the TMA since 1993. Below is a sampling of recent projects.
Recently we performed analysis of six large MTFs with Graduate Medical Education (GME) programs. We developed a process that identified best practices as well as systemic and endemic coding problems within the MHS. Using our team’s technical process, we collected coding and auditing performance data to identify trends and facilitate further analysis.
We conducted a study to improve coding performance at military facilities worldwide, for all three branches of service. Our auditors and IT specialists developed a methodology that enabled us to statistically verify best practices from the 5,000+ records audited. This methodology can be applied to any statistically valid coding study.
Our credentialed specialists also gathered information and statistics showing coding trends and workflow processes. We then analyzed this information, allowing us to recommend process improvements to achieve an immediate increase in correct coding, an improved work flow and increased charge capture.
The DCoE has a clear mandate to evaluate best practices and curriculum for Psychological Health (PH) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Program evaluation and the evaluation of best practices primarily requires subject matter expertise and is added greatly by formalized approaches. By leveraging both these elements, the DCoE will be able to determine how well a project, best practice, or program is performing against established goals and objectives, as well as to understand the effectiveness of its delivery processes and the impact on its target population.
STI is supporting this task with Physicians, Clinical Psychologists, and Senior RNs to support overall aim of the program evaluation and evaluation of best practices to understand intended and unintended effects of the project, best practice, or program.
Our data will help you make better decisions in less time. STI experts are skilled in creating at-a-glance snapshots from complex data. We combine flexible IT capabilities with the knowledge of experts in your domain – analysts and auditors who have years of previous experience as military officers, civil servants or private healthcare administrators.
Each analyst holds a minimum of a master’s degree in public health – epidemiology, biostatistics or health planning & administration. Each auditor is a credentialed professional, certified by the American Academy of Professional Coders and Professional Healthcare Institute of America.
