When the State of Texas announced its participation in the federal DSRIP program, University Medical Center of El Paso saw an opportunity to improve outcomes for its Medicaid and low-income patients – the majority of its patient population – while protecting its long-term financial viability. With the goal of qualifying for the program's financial incentives, UMC launched an ambitious improvement effort targeted at 32 quality metrics, with priority focus on preventing avoidable readmissions. Error-prone and time-consuming manual data analysis was replaced with an advanced analytics platform that provides near real-time data on performance issues at the department, service line, and individual physician level. Assess how the program team accesses a comprehensive view of the organization’s performance, identifies care gaps or process issues, collaborates on workflow changes, and applies data-based evidence for system-wide interventions that improve outcomes.
