COVID-19 HEALTHCARE DEMAND TRACKER
We continue to analyze the most recent data to monitor trends in healthcare demand - strain and recovery. In this installment, we examine physician visit volumes to provide insights into the magnitude and pace of utilization changes since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
DATA IS EVERYWHERE.
YOUR TEAM IS TALENTED.
... SO WHY DO ANSWERS TAKE SO LONG?
Have you seen the gap between amassing data and generating actionable information in your healthcare business? The ability to quickly collect, organize, standardize, analyze, and report has real, practical challenges. Hosting, privacy, security, integration, taxonomies, metrics, dashboards... all steps that can be automated with opportunities for improving quality along the way. This is where Kythera Labs can help.
HEALTHCARE INFORMATION HAS A BETTER PLATFORM
Healthcare information comes from a vast set of sources - electronic medical records, insurance claims, consumer apps, research, and many more - few of which easily match with one another. Having a way to systematically and reliably intake, standardize, and prepare all that data for use is a big task that has burdened the healthcare industry for decades. Kythera Labs addresses this industry-wide problem with a cloud-hosted platform that includes a place to securely store data, mechanisms for matching and integrating data, and analytics and reporting layers to enable extraction, analysis, and viewing of the standardized information.
... but that is only the first half of healthcare's data problem. The second half is the ability to find value in the combination and improvement of data. Kythera Labs has built a platform that not only standardizes healthcare information, the platform also applies machine learning techniques to merge data from internal and customer provided sources, fill in gaps where patient encounters or individual fields may be missing, and generate exponential value through combination.
Kythera Labs presents a unified and useful platform for healthcare data consumption, from raw data to standardization to analysis to reporting.
Remastered music enhances and balances the sound of original recordings through a variety of techniques, like noise reduction and balance correction. Kythera Labs remasters data that inevitably miss critical inputs, adding distortion and bias to the outcome - ultimately leading to invalid conclusions. Observing and adjusting what goes unseen by most is where real understanding occurs. Kythera Labs uses data science and machine learning to understand the observable, observe the unseen, and correct data into higher fidelity information. This process transforms commodities of data into enhanced insights - reducing the noise, increasing the nuance into remastered data.

QUALITY IS THE FIRST REQUIREMENT
Good decisions must be based on reliable data, and reliable data has to be of excellent quality. Kythera Labs ensures data quality using three axes.
What is the observable universe and how much of it is represented?
How thorough and usable is each component of the data that is being collected?
How often is the data updated?
