Research shows that less than 10 percent of hospitals in the country have an advanced cost accounting application that can integrate with EMRs so that organizations can look at clinical and financial outcomes together. This lack of accurate, reliable cost data is an enormous risk to the long-term viability of hospitals and health systems.
Leveraging Analytics to Drive Action
We have a best-in-KLAS decision support tool. Now what? Value-based payment models continue to gain momentum and adoption. Reducing costs is an ever-increasing priority for healthcare systems everywhere. How do we best leverage a decision support tool to navigate this environment? How do we get the right data in front of the right users? How do we ensure they trust and utilize it? How do we assist them in making better decisions to both improve quality outcomes and margin performance? In other words, how do we leverage these analytics tools to drive action? Since implementing StrataJazz Decision Support in 2016, MaineHealth and Mercy have continued to push the envelope to get actionable decision support data in front of the right people, in the right place, at the right time. In this session, members of MaineHealth and Mercy’s decision support team will share how they have leveraged decision support tools to drive better outcomes and better margins.
