Leveraging Longitudinal Clinical Laboratory Results to Improve Prenatal Care
This article from The American Journal of Managed Care (AJMC) summarizes the collaboration between a clinical laboratory (TriCore Reference Laboratories) and a managed care organization that improved prenatal care and outcomes through real-time, actionable, laboratory-derived insights and care coordination.
Beyond Test Results: Defining the Role of Clinical Laboratories in Value-Based Population Health Equity
Laboratories serve as valuable clinical partners in patient care, employing lab data and domain knowledge to identify risks and care gaps within a population. By evaluating trends and developing guideline-derived algorithms to identify and manage health conditions, laboratories create models to support clinical decisions. Learn more in this recent American Association of Clinical Chemistry article by Monique Dodd, David Grenache and Rick VanNess.
How TriCore is achieving medical innovation with AI
How building an AI algorithm helped TriCore provide a path to more robust prenatal care for patients as well as cost savings and innovation for the laboratory.
Opportunity for Real-Time, Longitudinal Clinical Laboratory Data to Enhance Diabetes Disease Surveillance: A Cross-Sectional, Laboratory Database–Enabled Population Study
Journal of Applied Laboratory Medicine
Dr. Teofilo Borunda Duque and the Clinical Solutions team at Rhodes Group published their work with TriCore Reference Laboratories demonstrating how laboratories can play a role in population health, specifically monitoring diabetes. They used the Rhodes Repository Engine to identify the number of diabetics in New Mexico and compared it against the CDC’s methodology of estimating the number of diabetics.
The Value of Laboratory Information Augmenting a Managed Care Organization's Comprehensive Diabetes Care Efforts in New Mexico
This article from The Journal of Applied Laboratory Medicine (JALM)
discusses how managed care organizations (MCOs) can use claim and prescription data to identify members for comprehensive diabetes care, thereby improving the HEDIS measure in this category.
