The core premise underlying the Johns Hopkins ACG® System approach is that the clustering of disease is a better predictor of resource use than the presence of one single disease or health care event. This proven population health analytics toolkit was developed and continues to be validated and improved by experts at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health to support its overall mission to promote equitable, effective, and efficient health care around the globe. Because the ACG® System can handle disparate data sources and diverse coding standards, it is suitable for a wide range of uses within a health enterprise. Additionally, the incorporation of non-clinical data sources, such as socio-economic or functional living status, helps customize the data output in a meaningful and actionable way. The ACG System has clinical, administrative and public health surveillance applications, all providing powerful analytics.
