Altarum helps providers improve patient outcomes and overall efficiency by leveraging health IT and transformative tools.

Overview

Altarum works with public insurers and clinical practices to improve patient outcomes and overall efficiency by optimizing clinical and office workflow and adopting and implementing health information technology.

Our Approach

We help clinicians improve care quality, reduce costs, participate in CMS’s Quality Payment Program and prepare for advanced Alternative Payment Models. Our quality improvement advisors work directly with medical and behavioral health practices to select quality measures, implement clinical and office workflow changes, and use health information technology data to drive quality improvements. 

Results

Altarum has helped over 6,000 clinicians drive transformation in health care that impacts millions of patients. Our protocols for using electronic health records to identify undiagnosed hypertensive and diabetic patients have increased important early treatments for these diseases. And our work on the Great Lakes Practice Transformation Network—a  CMS-funded collaboration among 36 universities, health systems, and independent practices—has saved more than $36 million in health care costs.
