Abstract

An Evidence Based Platform (EBP) is a methodology for developing and leveraging applications that categorize the clinical content of health care data (such as APR-DRG and other quality or performance measures) directly from electronic medical records without assigning medical codes. The method described in this paper provides an efficiently automated, cost effective, transparent, and defensible solution for assessing the quality, risk, and outcome of a patient healthcare encounter.
