Point-of-Care Display of Relative Cost Information

12:00pm - 1:00pm Thursday, March 8
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Murano 3304

Description

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.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Describe the importance of cost transparency in the therapy ordering process
  • Demonstrate how cost transparency can help an organization achieve value
  • Illustrate how to integrate cost information into an EHR at appropriate points in the clinical workflow
