Transforming Healthcare Through Research Outcomes

Your organization is improving health outcomes and may even offer solutions that are transforming healthcare. You want trustworthy evidence to show that your programs are making a real difference. Two questions need to be answered:

  • What is the impact?
  • Are you using valid methods to evaluate the impact?

The healthcare marketplace requires feedback loops for both internal and external stakeholders to validate these programs. Schooner Strategies is now offering through Trajectory® Healthcare LLC, a patented process to successfully answer these questions using advanced epidemiological and statistical verification methods.

An Epidemiological Approach

The Trajectory evaluation model uses the science of epidemiology, the cornerstone of public health, to meet the medical needs of individual patients and targeted populations.

Epidemiology asks the same questions about a population that a medical doctor asks about an individual:

  • What is the problem?
  • What is the history?
  • What is the treatment?
  • Did it work?

The last question: “Did it work?” is answered by another question: “Compared to what?”

Providers, epidemiologists and others often rely on professional knowledge and published evidence to predict expected health outcomes. Epidemiologists take the additional step of performing intensive quantitative analyses. Achieving excellence requires credible measurement of an equivalent comparison population.

Every disease has a “natural history.” Things are different before getting sick than afterwards. The Trajectory evaluation model provides a unique approach that not only tracks the natural history of a disease but describes the trajectory of population-based conditions.

The Trajectory Approach

Trajectory creates and studies virtual epidemics™ as the basis of much of its analyses. A virtual epidemic starts each patient on the same “trajectory day” and maps their course over time, providing an innovative framework for analysis.

Trajectory constructs critical feedback loops that demonstrate the link between program interventions and outcomes. Multiple sources power this analysis, including medical and prescription claims, lab results and patient surveys. The Trajectory data analytic engine creates and customizes study designs that validate the impact of program interventions more accurately than other evaluation approaches or tools.

Trajectory evaluates the “cause and effect” of an intervention by controlling for the confounding variable of time.

Trajectory evaluates the “cause and effect” of an intervention by controlling for the confounding variable of time. This approach adds clarity and fidelity to the analysis that other approaches cannot replicate. A demo of the Trajectory data analytic engine, combined with our wrap-around consulting services, will show you the current value of your program and provide insights on how to support future growth and improvement.

Clients can access Trajectory’s secure online portal and subject matter experts who offer insightful and objective consulting services. We can help you share your results by drafting scientific publications, white papers, press releases and other communications. Trajectory is a total outcomes solution! Trajectory’s Return on Investment (ROI) Calculator can examine the financial and clinical efficacy of most medical interventions in almost real time. We can address “what if” scenarios to examine the ROI for sub-populations and help you identify new opportunities.
