A big part of meeting the value-based purchasing environment in which healthcare systems find themselves is to empower providers so they can optimize the management of post-operative patient issues, reduce length of stay (LOS), and mitigate risk – all toward lowering costs. Allina Health, the largest integrated delivery system in Minnesota, set out to achieve these goals through a renewed focus on cardiovascular (CV) care across its system, which comprises 13 hospitals, 82 clinics, 1,658 staffed beds and 26,000 employees. Allina and its affiliate Minnesota Heart Institute (MHI) addressed population health issues, reduced clinical variations, tested new processes, and leveraged an enterprise data warehouse to elevate the improvements outcomes and realize more than $75-million in savings. In this session, Allina will describe how the value of strong partnerships and powerful data analytics is driving meaningful CV quality and outcomes.
