Using Advanced Analytics to Improve Population and Clinical Health
The Collaborative Research Center is studying how to improve population and clinical health outcomes with integrated services and advanced analytics, mixing complementary social, behavioral, and medical services by multiple providers. The research study has three aims: determine the impact of integrated service delivery on health outcomes in a safety-net population; determine the impact of community, population and public health advanced analytics in identifying and linking patients to needed integrated services; and identify the benefits and challenges of public health participation in case conferences.
Polis provides expertise on social, cultural, economic, and environmental data for predictive modeling of community health risk.
The Center’s work builds upon the spatial information infrastructure that Polis developed as part of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)-funded Indiana Center of Excellence in Public Health Informatics. The developed infrastructure permits Center researchers to geographically link clinical data in the Indiana Network for Patient Care (INPC) with data about the social determinants of health.
