ShareCor Selects Sandlot Solutions to Track, Report and Improve Key Measures for Louisiana Hospitals Through Big Data Capabilities

The Statewide Healthcare Shared-Services Organization Will Use Sandlot's Secure, Cloud-Based Platform to Expand Its Clinical Data Reporting and Analysis Services

DALLAS, TX and METAIRIE, LA--(Marketwired - Oct 9, 2014) - ShareCor announced today that it has selected Sandlot Solutions to further enhance its current clinical data reporting and analytical services offered through ShareCor's Louisiana Health Information Network (LHIN). ShareCor is the healthcare shared-services company serving members of the Louisiana Hospital Association (LHA) and the Metropolitan Hospital Council of New Orleans (MHCNO). Sandlot Solutions, a leading community health interoperability and analytics provider, was chosen for its technology capabilities to help ShareCor and its members streamline clinical integration reporting services in order to support population health management -- leading to increased quality, improved outcomes and lower costs of care for patients across Louisiana. 

Sandlot Solutions' technology will integrate and report on data from hospitals, physicians, other healthcare providers and health systems statewide. Incorporating clinical and administrative data, the new platform will help ShareCor improve its delivery of a statewide healthcare information repository for its members. The system enhancements will allow for long-term tracking and reporting on relevant quality and population health measures.

"Sandlot brings the technology to analyze data from areas we have not had the capability to analyze in the past. We see the ability to view clinical and administrative data within the construct of big data as essential for our members and the patients they serve," said John Steckler, Vice President, ShareCor. "Our members will now be able to better serve the people of Louisiana by having access to these enhanced near-real-time data services."

"To succeed in the current healthcare environment, our members will need access to relevant and timely clinical data analysis. We believe Sandlot's leading-edge technology and people will allow our members to meet future clinical information and reporting demands," said Paul A. Salles, President and Chief Executive Officer, the Louisiana Hospital Association.

ShareCor will implement Sandlot's proprietary data warehouse Sandlot Dimensions, with business intelligence powered by its big data platform. This technology will simplify the reporting process for hospitals and health systems and use analytics to enhance performance in the shifting value-based market. In addition to providing a portfolio of quality management reports, including ACO, HEDIS and PQRS, Sandlot's technology will enable ShareCor to examine clinical data collected statewide and make available near-real-time analytics specific to individual participating members.

"Louisiana has taken a major step forward in proactive, population health management, and we are extremely excited to serve ShareCor and implement the advanced tools and technology they need to positively impact healthcare delivery in Louisiana," said Joseph Casper, Chief Executive Officer, Sandlot Solutions. "By leveraging the power of Sandlot Solutions technology, ShareCor will be able to assist doctors, hospitals and other providers with improving the health status of Louisianans and strengthen the financial viability of the state's healthcare providers."

"Interoperable health information networks and the associated processes to assist with care coordination, clinical integration and a more efficient healthcare system will soon be the norm," said Richard Helppie, Chairman, Sandlot Solutions, Inc. "ShareCor will be a leader in provider-sponsored networks, making accessible the type of information sharing that the public, physicians and providers desire. We are excited to be part of their future."
