Good Quality is More Profitable: Engaging Physicians to Drive Financial Performance

Learn how Yale New Haven Health System embarked on a multi-year journey to benchmark services and identify areas of variation for targeted cost and value improvements. In this session, you’ll evaluate how robust cost-accounting data allowed leaders to see variation related to clinical processes, outcomes, and cost of care. You’ll also identify how quality variation indicators (QVIs) can help finance leaders have meaningful conversations with clinical leaders about quality, not just cost. You also will explore how the health system empowered clinicians to lead their clinical redesign processes and hear lessons learned.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify how QVIs can help finance leaders have meaningful conversation with clinical leaders about quality
  2. Discuss how to empower clinicians to lead their clinical redesign process
  3. Learn how to benchmark services and identify areas of variation for targeted cost and value improvements
