By leveraging the Johns Hopkins ACG System, Marathon Health was able to offer outreach and options to individuals identified as a higher risk of contracting or experiencing complications as a result of COVID-19.
Slough Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), which covers a population of 143,000 in the UK, used the Johns Hopkins ACG System to conduct a population health analysis that generated several new insights. After just 18 months, unplanned hospitalizations were reduced by 18% and emergency department visits were reduced by 19%.
Johns Hopkins Healthcare (JHHC) develops and manages medical care contracts for close to 400,000 plan members. JHHC created a framework based on an adapted version of the National Academy of Medicine taxonomy, combined with ACG System output, to provide a more extensive set of risk categories in an effort to expand their care management programs to high-risk Medicare patients.
The ACG System can help identify new Medicaid enrollees with high care needs.
