Co-founded by Intermountain Healthcare and Oxeon, Empiric Health activates evidence-based healthcare delivery to improve both clinical outcomes and operational efficiency. Its technology-enabled service has proven success in addressing variation in cost and outcomes for clinicians and health system administrators. Unlike traditional solutions, Empiric Health evaluates actual clinical and patient outcomes data, structured according to proprietary, physician-approved procedure groupings to ensure accuracy. Once variation is identified, clinicians are engaged individually and at a service line level to reach consensus on the best way to deliver care.
The company’s initial offering is based on Intermountain’s ProComp program. Clinicians built this program to help understand how differences in the way surgical procedures are performed – from supply utilization to staffing – impact patient outcomes and overall cost of care. Over the past four years, the program has created operational efficiencies resulting in more than $90M in savings for Intermountain and its patients, including reduced supply cost and length of stay.
