Alfred Health enhances clinical costing
PowerHealth, Adelaide developer of healthcare software, has been awarded the tender for Provision of Clinical Costing Software by Alfred Health.
Brett Michael, Director, PowerHealth said, “In a year that has presented all of us with ongoing challenges, digital transformation has proven more than ever to play a significant role in improving health care and it is exciting to see Alfred Health taking a lead in this space.”
“Healthcare institutions need to have the confidence that their costing data is credible, transparent, easy to understand, and provided in a timely manner to support agile decision-making,” Michael said.
The release of PowerPerformance Manager (PPM3) offers hospitals costing and analytics functionality — it focuses on integration, visualisation, allocation methodologies, benchmarking (including IHPA, HRT, across jurisdiction, and within system) and easy provisioning of the solution via the cloud.
PowerHealth has dedicated resources for building expanded data visualisation features within PPM3, all delivered inside the product, exactly where needed when configuring or analysing costs. It includes a refined interface and expanded visual library with over 20 different types of visualisation components including 3D Heat Maps, Charts, Trend Lines, Queries and Timelines, to ensure all sites can personalise their dashboards and reporting to their specific needs to get the most out of the rich data PPM makes available.
“COVID-19 has exacerbated the complexity for providers associated with managing access to care, cost of care and quality of care. PPM3 has been developed with an emphasis on delivering timely information and analytics to assist providers with a comprehensive performance reporting solution, supporting customers to extract value from complex data sets and enable peer-to-peer benchmarking against normalised data and KPIs,” Michael said.
“Alfred Health chose PowerPerformance Manager as it met their goal of moving to a cloud-based system and for its advanced costing functionality, which can provide automated and detailed costing information throughout the organisation, freeing up time to allow more detailed analysis of the results.”
