The Johns Hopkins ACG System
The ACG System is a person-focused case-mix system that captures the multidimensional nature of an individual’s health. It considers the total disease experience of each patient, including the implications of co‑occurring disease, encouraging a holistic view of the patient rather than the management of specific diseases or episodes.
Sollis and Johns Hopkins started their UK collaboration back in 2010. Today Sollis Clarity Health Analytics is the largest solution deploying the Johns Hopkins ACG System in the UK.
The ACG System has multiple applications within a UK healthcare setting and all of these are demonstrable in the NHS today.
The ACG System supports:
- Case Finding
Patient level risk stratification
- Resource Management
Case-mix risk adjustment and benchmarking
- Population Health Needs Assessment
Population level risk stratification
- Fair Shares Budgeting
Capitated budget setting
In this video Linda Dunbar, Vice President of Population Health Care Management at Johns Hopkins HealthCare discusses how the ACG System assisted with Care Management for high-risk individuals in a high-risk Medicaid population in Baltimore.
