Decisioning Harmonization

Our approach to pattern-of-life healthcare solutions harmonizes modifiable social determinants of health specific to each patient with the precise healthcare problems of the patient and the healthcare delivery system of the provider organization.  Such harmonization enables the transformation of:

  • the science in patient decision-making 
  • the science in medical decision-making
  • the science in healthcare organizational decision-making 

Premature Causes Of Death In The U.S.

When applied to a patient’s pattern-of-life environment, our method and system provide a standard-of-care-based solution to mitigating the premature causes of death and to taking advantages by patients and by healthcare providers of health risks attributable to modifiable social determinants of health.

Coexisting Complex Medical Conditions

The reality of pattern-of-life healthcare solutions recognizes the complex challenges the patient eventually faces — inter-related and often competing, multiple, co-existing medical conditions.

Anatomies Of Modifiable Social Determinants Of Health

Pattern-of-life healthcare solutions must capitalize on the complexities of health-related patterns-of-life within our healthcare system.  The anatomy of this complex system is comprised of several healthcare component systems and subsystems and their standard-of-care decisioning processes.  

Disproportionate Healthcare Burdens

For those of us who live long enough to become Medicare beneficiaries, typically we have acquired multiple co-existing chronic conditions, and many of us have as many as or even more than six co-existing chronic conditions.  The healthcare cost of co-existing chronic conditions is disproportionate to the number of Medicare beneficiaries. 

Pattern-Of-Life Data Harmonization

Social engagement activities of patients creates data-types that are not readily transferable to electronic medical record systems. There are a myriad of challenges that must be overcome to operationalize pattern-of-life information in healthcare decision-making.

Pattern-of-life healthcare must manage the interaction among the health decision-making systems and processes and their data operationalization challenges integral to altering modifiable social determinants of health.

Benefits Of Managing And Overcoming Pattern-Of-Life Challenges

Pattern-of-life health decision-making harmonizes the healthcare ecosystem. 

  • Patients spend less money to achieve better health. 
  • Providers achieve efficiencies and greater patient satisfaction for helping patients improve their health, reduce the effects and incidence of chronic disease and live healthier lives, within standards of care. 
  • Suppliers align prices with patient outcomes. 
  • Society becomes healthier while reducing overall healthcare spending.
