Discover your future in digital health analytics.

Accelerate digital transformation and discover new insights from your data with tailored health analytic solutions.

Visualize and analyze cohort data.

SAS Health Cohort Builder provides an interactive, drag-and-drop interface for querying and building cohorts with temporal relationships – no coding required. You can easily explore cohort characteristics and the effect of inclusion/exclusion criteria on patient populations to deter­mine study feasibility. You can save cohort definitions for reuse, modify them and apply them to other real world data assets for comparisons across populations, which saves time and resources. Validate results and do further analysis using in-memory analysis and visualization in SAS or other technologies (e.g., R, Python and third-party visualization tools).

Quickly assemble clinical/chronic events.

SAS Health: Episode Builder puts the power to see – and edit – episode definitions in your hands. SAS applies fully documented logic to create episodes of care, and the logical business rules are transparent and auditable at any time. Instead of spending weeks to manually code events, your team can now focus on communicating results to analysts and clinicians.

Visualize trends in health data to compare outcomes and cost.

Interactive cohort and episode builders provide easy-to-use, point-and-click interfaces. This makes it easy to identify population subsets, clinical events and associations so you can better understand the differences in health outcomes within a provider network, clinical research or in the general population. Combined with embedded machine learning and AI, these capabilities deliver enhanced insights that you can align with your organizational strategy.

Efficiently consume and standardize clinical data.

SAS Health: Data Mapper creates libraries of verified data maps that transform data from source entities into standard formats that meet clinical and regulatory standards. The mappings are available for repeatable transformations, improving efficiency and accuracy.

Efficiently adjust for risk and severity in population health or claims data.

SAS Health: Episode Builder facilitates risk adjustment through repeatable and transparent processes. Built-in models help analytic leaders understand population-level cost drivers, comorbidities and expected outcomes for specific episodes of care. Financial analysis supports risk management professionals, as well as clinicians who want to optimize treatment pathways.

Achieve breakthrough success wherever you are on your analytic journey.

Deploy model results, such as clinical propensities or risk scores, into operational systems for faster insights delivered at the point of decision – and a greater ROI. Ready to expand your analytic journey? Easily add unstructured and streaming data to your structured data using prebuilt capabilities. You can also add text analytics, computer vision and natural language processing to your predictive models. With the power and flexibility of SAS, you can establish a foundation for repeatable, industry-specific applications and innovative AI solutions that help you successfully navigate change in the market.
