Payment models for healthcare are evolving rapidly. And, all eyes are focused on value. As such, clinicians are being called on to control costs. To do so, they need to know what they are dealing with. Enter the need for cost transparency. To answer this call, New Hanover Regional Medical Center leveraged lean methodology to develop a program that makes it possible to display therapy costs to clinicians in the electronic health record at the point of decision. As such, clinicians now are able to more purposefully deliver high quality care in a cost-conscious manner.
