Description

Steward Health Care created and implemented a proprietary, predictive IT tool designed to predict patient census and facilitate hospital efficiencies resulting in significant improvement in bottom line performance while maintaining top quality results. This session will explore the path Steward took in developing its predictive analytics tool including identification of the problems, identification of the variables directly correlated with operational performance, design of the predictive tool and operational dashboard, engaging local management teams and creating local buy in, and implementation of the tool throughout the system. Since implementation, Steward has achieved significant financial improvements, driven primarily by improvements in length of stay performance, improvements in coding and reductions in FTE/AOB, all while maintaining its high level of quality.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Analyze the process taken by the team to change workflows and implement a successful predictive tool
  • Evaluate the data elements necessary to create an accurate, predictive tool
  • Demonstrate that length of stay and staffing reductions can can be achieved by delivering relevant information in real time to all staff
  • Discover the impact predictive analytics can have on overall spend within the health care environment
