The con­cept of sys­tem­ness has gained con­sid­er­able steam as the na­tion’s health sys­tems fur­ther com­mit to value-based care. As health sys­tems be­gin to take on fi­nan­cial risk for out­comes, or­ga­ni­za­tions are ex­pand­ing their ser­vices to fol­low pa­tients across the con­tin­uum of care, in ad­di­tional hos­pi­tals, physi­cian of­fices, post-acute fa­cil­i­ties and at home. The ul­ti­mate as­pi­ra­tion is to demon­strate a seam­less, co­he­sive pa­tient ex­pe­ri­ence across these set­tings with pre­dictable out­comes and stan­dard­ized prac­tices. Health sys­tems that em­brace sys­tem­ness of­fer con­sis­tent ex­pe­ri­ences and out­comes for pa­tients and providers across the con­tin­uum, have stan­dard­ized pro­cesses and pro­to­cols, and align fi­nan­cial in­cen­tives across de­part­ments and fa­cil­i­ties. Em­ploy­ees at a “sys­tem­ized” or­ga­ni­za­tion are all work­ing to­ward the same goals. Read the white pa­per “De­liv­er­ing Sys­tem­ness: The Crit­i­cal

Im­pact of Sys­tem­ness on Cost, Qual­ity and Out­comes,” to dis­cover how sys­tem­ness can help your or­ga­ni­za­tion make the heal­ing process more ef­fi­cient and pleas­ant for pa­tients and clin­i­cians alike. Learn cru­cial lessons from Kanka­kee, Ill.based River­side Health­care’s trans­for­ma­tion process project that em­pow­ered clin­i­cians to im­prove the heal­ing process by stan­dard­iz­ing wound care prod­ucts and pro­cesses across the con­tin­uum. Work­ing with Med­line, the largest pri­vately held man­u­fac­turer and dis­trib­u­tor of med­i­cal sup­plies, River­side was able to im­prove qual­ity of wound care through­out its sys­tem in­clud­ing the tran­si­tions of care; mak­ing the pa­tients jour­ney across the con­tin­uum seam­less and con­sis­tent with prod­ucts, pro­to­cols and ed­u­ca­tion. At the same time they were able to re­duce hospi­tal-ac­quired pres­sure in­juries and costs. As a re­sult, the health sys­tem has also been able to treat more pa­tients, in­creas­ing its wound care vol­ume by 32%.

In this com­pelling white pa­per, health­care ex­ec­u­tives will learn:

• Why sys­tem­ness mat­ters to health­care or­ga­ni­za­tions

• Why in­flu­enc­ing clin­i­cian be­hav­ior is cru­cial in achiev­ing sys­tem­ness

• How to iden­tify where sys­tem­ness is lack­ing

• How to stan­dard­ize ed­u­ca­tion of staff and pa­tients
