Though BLRI recognizes a need for improved healthcare in the developing world, it also knows that there are health disparities in the United States as well. As a result, BRLI proposed to utilize its healthcare services analysis division-PSIMedica-- to obtain and analyze public healthcare data and identity the geographic and economic variances in the provision of health services in the United States.
PSIMedica will develop a proposal outlining the questions that will be addressed in its initial review of the data. A review of the various publicly-held healthcare datasets will take place. The datasets that may be imported into the PSIMedica technology based application will be identified. Upon completion of the dataset importations, PSIMedica will begin their analysis of the data. The analysis will be done using a series of standard and ad hoc reports.
BRLI, Inc. has a long time commitment to support methods to improve and measure delivery of healthcare services to persons in need of the services. Almost 10 years ago, BRLI, Inc. embarked on a project to develop technology which would improve the accuracy of providing patient information to its physicians to improve the delivery of healthcare services and measure healthcare service quality provided to patients. This methodology requires the inclusion of laboratory results in the analysis of the healthcare data. Later, BRLI developed technology that can be used by any laboratory to improve reporting of patient laboratory results to physicians. To date, BRLI has more than 40 Independent Laboratory and Hospital Laboratory contracts. More recently, BRLI, Inc. has developed physician reporting to support P4P initiatives. While this does not increase the number of jobs available in the affected communities, it can have a positive impact on healthcare services to millions of patients.
Healthcare quality and costs have continued to be of concern in the U.S. The concern first and foremost is whether people in need of services are actually receiving services or can afford insurance to cover services. The second concern is whether the cost of healthcare services is appropriate. The third concern is whether appropriate services and treatments are being rendered in accordance with the medical community consensus approved Standard of Care.
The project will be managed within strict timelines in an effort to make sure the data is obtained, processed, analyzed with published reports. Quarterly reports of progress with timelines will be provided. At the conclusion of each segment of the project, a 'white paper' will be generated describing the impact of the analysis of the data.
