Shared Governance and Analytics Framework Improves Quality

3:00pm - 4:00pm Wednesday, March 7
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Marcello 4405

Description

Population health is an increasing focus of the U.S. healthcare industry, as hospitals grapple with strategies for improving quality, outcomes and patient experience. Commercial payers and CMS have set benchmarks and are increasingly making reimbursement contingent on outcomes improvements in lieu of services rendered. One such integrated delivery system (IDS), MultiCare, improved outcomes for patients experiencing pneumonia, sepsis and hysterectomies. Washington-based MultiCare is a not-for-profit with 11,600 employees, including 750 employed providers serving five hospitals with 1,130 beds and 130 clinics. Better data consistently leads to better patient outcomes, the system discovered. In this session, MultiCare will illustrate how a shared governance arrangement built a strategic framework for the use of analytics to deliver not only broader quality outcomes, but also service excellence and affordable care.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Summarize how data analytics can drive successful population health initiatives
  • List three ways a healthcare system can improve governance to achieve outcomes improvements
  • Explain how a healthcare system can sustain improvements in the face of competing demands
