Why Motive

We know quality. We drive change. We improve care.

We make the best health care outcomes the most obvious health care options.

Health care may be inherently complex, but it doesn’t need to be overly complicated. Data may be everywhere, but merely collecting and organizing it into information — as data aggregators and data normalizers do — doesn’t necessarily make it more valuable.

What does? Motive Practicing Wisely Solutions.

Since 1996, Motive has partnered with health care providers and payers to transform evidence into action. Action that eliminates wasteful, unnecessary, and low-quality care.

There is a better way.

As payer and provider organizations move to value-based purchasing, their need for more information about the quality and cost of care is increasing. Better performance measurement is essential to better outcomes and lower cost.

What doctors do is abstracted from claims records in databases covering millions of doctor-patient encounters. The data are analyzed against the parameters that matter most to payers and patients: harm, cost, and quality. Measure criteria are explicit and shareable.

Motive’s informaticists, knowledge engineers, and medical editors work with a network of more than 600 board-certified, academically affiliated clinicians to create our trusted medical intelligence for outcomes-based care.

“Motive Practicing Wisely Solutions gave us the data to finally understand how we compare to not only our peers across the country, but also our peers down the hall. We realized that some of us are choosing a treatment path all of the time, and others none of the time, with no measurable difference in quality. It was a wake-up call for our practice.”

Quality care every day, everywhere, for everyone.

Motive’s measures have physician buy-in because they are developed by physicians for physicians. And Motive’s visual representations of performance help ensure physicians don’t just understand the metrics but can take action on them.
