Data Acquisition
as a Service

Just having data in your EHR or data warehouse doesn’t make it actionable.

d2i has been delivering solutions to the Emergency Medicine and Hospital Medicine space for more than a decade. During that time, we have developed a suite of data integration solutions — including Data Acquisition as a Service (DAaaS) — that help accelerate a broad range of strategic initiatives.

d2i’s DAaaS is as much a service as a product because we host and manage an architecture that turns raw data from multiple sources into harmonized information you can trust. This data architecture was built specifically for EM, HM, and related processes and services.

Today DAaaS has been implemented at more than 270 hospital sites, using out-of-the-box data-extract scripts for most electronic health records (EHRs), as well as billing, scheduling, and patient satisfaction systems. The demand for this service is growing rapidly due to the urgent need for curated data sets that help HCOs thrive in an environment of increasing competition, regulation, and the need to demonstrate value.

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

We are experts at acquiring, cleansing, and aggregating data.

At d2i, we’ve built data extract scripts for all EHRs, guaranteeing quick and easy implementation. And, even if you have an existing investment in a business intelligence platform, you can use d2i’s DAaaS to do the heavy lifting for you.

We gather data from multiple sources, including:

  • EMRs/EDIS
  • Satisfaction surveys
  • Scheduling software
  • Labs
  • RCM vendors

It’s your data, and we’ll get it to you any way you like. Even with multiple departments and different systems, we normalize information, identify and correct errors, and give you accurate, reliable data you can use.

Strategic Initiatives
  • Quality and Risk Mitigation: Initiatives to reduce opioid use, sepsis, and clinical variability
  • Cost Containment: Reducing unnecessary utilization, optimizing staff scheduling and productivity, and making efficient use of hospital resources
  • Population Health: Smoothing care transitions and reducing readmissions
  • Revenue Growth: Reducing leakage, patients leaving without being seen, improving coding accuracy, and improving patient satisfaction to attract and retain patients
  • Performance Management: Support for performance-based compensation, OPPE, and collaborative, data-driven PI conversations across departments
  • Value-Based Reimbursement: Initiatives to optimize value-based incentive programs, including CMS’ Bundled Payments for Care Improvement (BPCI), MIPS, APMS, as well as private-payer programs.
  • Data Extraction: ETL scripts, algorithms, and processes that take raw extracted data from EHRs and other data sources and turn it into actionable information
  • Data Normalization: Aggregation of independently created data sources (structured and semi-structured) into unified data sets to improve quality, including adjusting values defined in different terms to notionally common terms in order to establish relationships and reduce redundancy
  • Data enrichment: Extrapolation of data to create new elements that enhance analytics, for instance, the creation of diagnostic subgroups
  • Processes are completely automated, allowing for extracts at any time interval, and data models are optimized for balanced scorecards and cross-domain advanced analytics.

Categories of Data Acquired, Cleansed, and Normalized by DAaaS
  • Patient demographics, medications, allergies, and immunizations, as well as social, family, and surgical histories
  • Problems and complaints
  • Coding: ESI, E&M, ICD10, CPT, LOINC, and RxNORM
  • Facility, staff, and scheduling data
  • Patient movement and provider touch points, with time stamps
  • Pharmacy, radiology, and lab orders and results
  • Billing and payer data
  • Patient satisfaction
  • Unstructured data abstracted from provider notes
