Using Duke Electronic Medical Record data from diabetic patients, the team built an analytical pipeline for a prospective health coaching clinical trial to examine the effect on patients’ health and future medical costs. This framework will be extrapolated to data from the Triad Health Network and will be an analytical path for Accountable Care Organizations to evaluate ways to improve quality of care and lower costs while taking part in the Medicare Shared Savings Program.
