Inovalon’s Cloud-Based Healthcare Data Lake solution begins with the integration, aggregation and normalization of complex, disparate, structured and unstructured data. Data is then enriched leveraging massive amounts of data contained in Inovalon’s proprietary healthcare dataset, the MORE2 Registry®. The resulting “Data Lake” delivers insightful analytics to help solve complex business and clinical issues.
Figure 1: Inovalon’s Healthcare Data Lake – How it Works
Through the combination of easy access to an organization’s own internal data and nation-scale comparative data, together with analytics that can be applied in real time across the combination of datasets, Inovalon’s Healthcare Data Lake allows organizations to realize the power of their own data.
Comprehensive, Real-Time Patient Insights
Real-time data streaming delivers a more complete and current patient profile and patient journey maps to enable care management teams to know when and how best to engage high-risk patients
Clinical Data from the Nation’s Largest EHR Network
Converts unstructured clinical data from more than 256K clinician EHRs into structured, usable information, leveraging FHIR-based models to support clinical data exchange through API constructs
Scalable, Extensible Data Model to Meet Your Needs
Highly scalable, extensible data model with a range of outputs based on client need, including user-friendly dashboards, exportable data extracts, APIs and query tools, support a wide array of business use cases aimed at improving care delivery, operational efficiency and financial performance
End-to-End Data Management
Ingest, integrate, validate and normalize both structured and unstructured disparate data types within a secure, scalable cloud-based infrastructure
Industry-Leading Expertise in Claims & Clinical Data Integration
Clinical data validation edits informed by deep industry subject matter expertise ensure quality (e.g., NCQA) and risk adjustment program compliance (e.g., CMS, HHS)
Core to the Inovalon Healthcare Data Lake is the aggregation and normalization of an organization’s existing data assets, often from widely disparate systems and in widely disparate formats. Regardless of the data type, Inovalon creates a normalized, conformed data layer that supports the matching and linking of disparate datasets. To ensure that data is complete and accurate, Inovalon applies more than 1,100 data integrity analyses that have been trained from the ingestion of the nearly 63 billion medical events within Inovalon’s MORE2 Registry® dataset.
These data integrity analyses help identify and resolve errors within the core data. Inovalon then applies its Clinical Data Extraction as a Service (CDEaaS™) capabilities to locate and ingest supplemental clinical data from electronic health records. Following this, Inovalon applies its Natural Language Processing as a Service (NLPaaS™) capabilities to convert non-structured data into structured data.
The aggregated datasets are then further enriched with Inovalon’s data and analytical resources providing SDOH data, relative clinical quality data, relative outcome performance data, layered predictive patient cost and utilization risk indicators (e.g. ACG1, HCC2), and other data and analytical derivatives.
Throughout this process, Inovalon’s algorithms designed for assuring accurate longitudinal linking and matching maintain patient-level integrity of data element assignment. Data is integrated, processed, and available in real time so that authorized users within the healthcare organizations can have access to the resulting superset of data to benefit their goals more quickly than the costly disparate or batch-processes data environments often found within larger healthcare organizations today.
