The ICHOM Global Benchmarking Platform

Benchmark patient outcomes to improve patient care faster

In 2021 ICHOM launched the Global Benchmarking Platform with its partner MRDM. The platform performs risk adjustment algorithms on patient outcomes by condition. This validated and pseudonymised data is now displayed through interactive graphs and visualisations and benchmarked. Each healthcare provider can view and understand their data whilst monitoring their KPIs over time and in comparison to others within: a network of hospitals, and/or scale comparisons on a national; and international level. Access to this insight gives providers the tools needed to identify areas for development, leading to better patient health and experience.

UNLOCK THE POTENTIAL OF VALUE-BASED HEALTHCARE - How does it work?

COLLECT

Providers collect and store data in a pre-defined and standardized way, as defined by ICHOM Patient Centered Outcomes Measures.

SECURE

Provider data is securely encrypted during transfer and storage and is uploaded to the platform using one of three methods:

  • FHIR API
  • Batch data uploads
  • Manual data entry

VALIDATE

MRDM processes data according to ICHOM’s working group calculation rules:

  • Harmonization
  • Risk adjustment
  • Data validation

CONNECT

Select providers to compare with:*

  • Network of hospitals
  • National-level
  • International scale

COLLABORATE

Members of the Platform have the opportunity to collaborate between peers - facilitated by ICHOM

The importance of benchmarking

HOW CAN BENCHMARKING IMPROVE OUTCOMES?

If you have been collecting outcomes you know how valuable this data is and how much time and effort is required. But what’s next? How do you extract insight from your data and place it in context to understand if your decisions and resources are being used effectively and as efficiently as possible?

Benchmark. Compare your patients’ outcomes with others and identify improvement potential faster.

What can our platform offer you?

  • View your data using state of the art data visualizations and interactive dashboards.
  • Identify the outcomes for subgroups of patients by applying relevant filters (like treatment options, patient characteristics etc).
  • Compare your patients’ outcomes within your network of hospitals, and/or scale comparisons on a national; and international level.

Who is it for?

  • Clinicians can collect and compare outcomes data efficiently and at scale
  • Quality officers can access validated outcomes data and use quality assured ICHOM Patient-Centered Outcomes Measures
  • Healthcare providers can work collaboratively to improve patient outcomes

Choose the format to upload your data

There are four distinct methods for providing data for benchmarking. The method chosen will determine workload for the provider’s team and access to the platform’s reporting dashboards.

1. True unique patient identifier (MRN)
2. Encrypted unique patient identifier hash (MRN)
3. Unique pseudonyms as a patient identifier
4. No patient identifiers

It is up to the organization’s preference and local legal regulations which method to use. There are practical benefits to adopting methods 1-3 including:

Prevent data duplication

Enable incremental updates to existing data

To provide a cross reference of the included patients on the platform

WHY IS THIS DEVELOPMENT IMPORTANT?

  • Improve the performance of your organization with a focus on value-based healthcare
  • Collect and compare outcomes data efficiently and at scale
  • Access validated outcomes data and quality assured ICHOM Standard Sets
  • Work collaboratively to improve patient outcomes

The future is value-based healthcare

With the Global Benchmarking Platform we are removing the technical and operational barriers around data access. By facilitating benchmarking across your organisation and your peers across the world, we will learn from each other to the ultimate benefit of patients.

We’re one step closer to realizing the adoption of patient-centric outcomes measured as part of routine care

Conditions on the platform

ICHOM Patient-Centered Outcomes Measures offer a standardized way to capture patient outcomes as well as baseline patient characteristics and other risk adjustment factors for a particular medical condition, regardless of their specific diagnosis or treatment plan. Each Set comprises standardized outcomes, measurement tools and time points and risk adjustment factors. Developed by a consortium of clinical experts and patient representatives, ICHOM Sets of Outcomes provide a way to measure and compare what matters most to patients.

To facilitate meaningful comparisons in our initial dashboards, we have developed a specific version of the Sets for benchmarking.
