Having a lot of data can help grow your business, streamline processes, improve efficiencies, and make your agency more profitable. But, if you don’t know how to use the data, or simply don’t have the time and man-power to analyze the data, then those hidden treasures waiting in all that data remain hidden. Understanding the value of that data, Curantis Solutions partners with Amazon HealthLake to help you harness it.

Curantis Solutions is a Texas based company delivering value to hospice and palliative care agencies. Their cloud-based management solutions help you increase operational and financial efficiencies while still offering well-coordinated and high quality patient care. The platform works to address two common pain points in our industry: siloed data and software systems that operate separate from each other. Curantis Solutions re-imagines workflows to reduce hours spent on tasks outside of direct patient care.

The Impetus for Change

New CMS regulations and the HL7 Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) create standards that providers and health care plans must meet. This could help home health and hospice agencies with clinical data issues. FHIR imagines a unified EMR system for greater interoperability. Facing FHIR compliance, Curantis Solutions turned to AWS to help centralize their data. Using Amazon HealthLake, a fully managed FHIR service, Curantis was able to make their client data interoperable.

The Solution for Curantis Solutions

Using Amazon’s Working Backwards process, Curantis found a customer-centric solution. AWS helped Curantis work through:

  • Business objectives
  • A free, introductory program, “Gain Insights”
  • Cloud set-up and solution design

Curantis also implemented Amazon Kinesis to help collect, process, and analyze real-time data. All of Curantis’s data is now easily accessible, opening the door for AI, analytics, and business intelligence.

Curantis Solutions and Amazon HealthLake Data Processing and Analytics

Using Amazon, Curantis Solutions can build visual dashboards and reports. The visual reports help agency administrators understand and apply the data at a glance without spending hours analyzing the data points. The integration allows data analysis in almost real time. The Amazon suite of services aids Curantis in growth and enhanced data processing for their clients. It also allows Curantis to highlight powerful industry and patient data trends. These key indicators will help with critical decision making for continued high quality patient care.

    This new platform adds expanded abilities to meet customer needs:

    • Enhanced partner integrations
    • Diverse way to prensent a patient-focused view
    • The power to make predictions about a patient’s decline based upon chart data
    • The ability for customers and internal stakeholders to easily explore data
