Data Aggregation

Lightbeam’s industry leading enterprise data warehouse (EDW) is
the foundation for all of our solutions.

Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW)

With over 200 years of combined experience in the ambulatory, acute, and payer space, Lightbeam has developed unique expertise in blending clinical, claims, and social data.

Our Enterprise Data Warehouse drives sophisticated analytics and stratification engines that transform disparate clinical and claims data into actionable information, resulting in better clinical outcomes.

By effectively unifying claims and clinical data, Lightbeam can help you revolutionize the way in which you manage your patient’s care and ultimately drive your ability to lower the cost of healthcare.

Most data warehouse platforms are designed primarily to store post-adjudicated claim information, pharmacy data, and limited lab data. Lightbeam’s healthcare data model and warehouse were designed from the ground up to store real-time discrete clinical data. The additional real-time clinical values will allow for dramatic improvements in your ability to assess risk acuity, allowing your care managers to focus on the right patients at the right time.

Waiting for claims to be processed and adjudicated can delay your care managers from receiving crucial information by 30 - 120 days. A patient’s health can deteriorate dramatically during this period, resulting in costly events such as emergency visits and hospital admissions or re-admissions. Our goal is to provide real-time or near-time access to critical information to help prevent these avoidable emergency visits and admissions.

Lightbeam's Enterprise Data Warehouse:

  • Extracts and aggregates data from multiple sources
  • Brings data together from both in-patient and ambulatory settings
  • Real-time, discrete clinical data as well as claims
  • Maps, normalizes, and cleanses data into an actionable healthcare model
  • Provides sophisticated Enterprise Master Patient Index

Lightbeam’s EDW Features Include:

  • Clinical and claims aggregation
  • Normalization
  • Enterprise master patient index (EMPI)
  • Healthcare structured data model

Aggregation

When providing a population health platform for an entire community, you must unify data from a variety of sources, including multiple practices, hospitals, reference labs, and pharmacies. Aggregating this data and unifying it with claims data is a complex process. Lightbeam has the technology--and more importantly the expertise—to unify all of this data in a meaningful and actionable way.

Normalization

Clinical systems and claim feeds often store data quite differently. Many times field labels are inconsistent and the data input is often mixed between pick lists and alpha-numeric combinations. Bringing order to these different elements is a complex task that requires a sophisticated engine. Lightbeam’s Enterprise Data Warehouse tools seamlessly blend these data sources together.

Enterprise Master Patient Index

Duplicate patient records is a common issue when combining data from disparate systems, emphasizing the need for a sophisticated enterprise master patient index (EMPI). Lightbeam utilizes a highly scalable solution that not only manages probabilistic patient matching but also provides the similar matching algorithms for other entities such as provider, location, and hospital.

Data Model

At the foundation of our Enterprise Data Warehouse is a comprehensive healthcare logical data model designed by a large insurance plan and nationally recognized healthcare clinical data integrator. This collaboration has produced the ultimate data model for managing clinical and claims data. This sophisticated data engine allows Lightbeam to consume and aggregate large amounts of data and rapidly transform it into a usable format that drive our quality measures, financial analytics, and care coordination solutions.

Through our state-of-the-art integration engine, Lightbeam moves beyond claims data to offer a more complete, longitudinal view of patient populations.

“This partnership is instrumental in our growth strategy. Lightbeam has been a pivotal tool that has allowed us to shift from fee-for-service to value-based care much faster than we otherwise could have.”
