Health Analytics Suite
information and insight to help understand and address operational needs. In 2018,
MHA partnered with 3M to provide members with access to Health Analytics Suite (formerly Performance Matrix), an
online analytics platform that allows users to tap into the depth and power of Minnesota’s
statewide administrative claims database.
addition to traditional market share reports, Health Analytics Suite incorporates
3M’s methodologies for risk adjustment (APR-DRGs for inpatient cases and EAPGs
for outpatient visits) and potentially preventable events. This allows users to
benchmark their performance – as well as others’ – on mortality, length of
stay, readmissions and much more.
As an added
member benefit, there is no cost for MHA members who have contributed their
data to the database to access the tool. There is also no limit on the number
of users per organization. Multiple individuals at an organization can access the
tool and not be dependent on a designated user to run reports for them. For
professionals can use the tool to compare total charges and risk-adjusted
average length of stay for specific types of cases against other facilities in
quality staff can identify improvement opportunities by looking at their risk-adjusted
observed and expected rates of mortality, readmissions or complications
planners can look at trends of patient utilization by ZIP code, with enhanced
data visualization tools like maps that bring the data to life for any audience
