Per­for­mance Ex­cel­lence at the Cross­roads of Clin­i­cal Out­come Im­prove­ment and Op­er­a­tional Op­ti­miza­tion

“As your or­ga­ni­za­tion em­barks on im­prove­ment ini­tia­tives in an en­vi­ron­ment that’s tran­si­tion­ing to val­ue­based pay­ment, a highly con­nected dis­cov­ery process is crit­i­cal.”

Hos­pi­tals and health sys­tems know that the qual­ity of care they de­liver is closely in­ter­twined with their op­er­a­tional and fi­nan­cial ef­fi­cien­cies — and can’t be viewed in si­los.

As your or­ga­ni­za­tion em­barks on im­prove­ment ini­tia­tives in an en­vi­ron­ment that’s tran­si­tion­ing to value-based pay­ment, a highly con­nected dis­cov­ery process is crit­i­cal.

The con­cept of bal­anced, wide-rang­ing per­for­mance met­rics is the core of the Tru­ven Health 100 Top Hos­pi­tals® pro­gram, which lever­ages in­de­pen­dent data and risk-ad­justed and peer­re­viewed method­olo­gies to an­nu­ally iden­tify the best per­form­ing U.S. hos­pi­tals. The rig­or­ous and com­pre­hen­sive pro­gram and its met­rics pro­vide in­sights into any hos­pi­tal’s per­for­mance. Hos­pi­tals use this in­for­ma­tion to eval­u­ate their key clin­i­cal and op­er­a­tional mea­sures, iden­tify op­por­tu­ni­ties, and en­sure im­prove­ment plans are data-driven and linked strate­gi­cally.

Ket­ter­ing Health Sys­tem in south­west Ohio used the 100 Top Hos­pi­tals key per­for­mance mea­sures as its def­i­ni­tion of qual­ity. By work­ing with Tru­ven

Health con­sult­ing ex­perts to struc­ture and fo­cus the pro­gram, it achieved up­ward move­ment on key mea­sures for top decile per­for­mance, re­sult­ing in im­proved qual­ity, cost-sav­ings, Value-Based

Pur­chas­ing re­im­burse­ments and penalty avoid­ance. The re­sults?

• 50% de­crease in length of stay

• 17% re­duc­tion in read­mis­sions

• More than $800,000 in im­me­di­ate cost-sav­ings

• $0 lost to Value-Based Pur­chas­ing penal­ties (sys­tem-wide ag­gre­gate)

• Im­proved HCAHPS scores
