Strata and Yale New Haven partnered together to incorporate the Quality Variation Indicators within Decision Support and Continuous Improvement, to provide transparency related to the cost of sub-optimal care.

The CIO’s Role in Cost Improvement
For the last decade, CIOs have been consumed with implementing and gaining adoption for EHRs. Now that they are implemented and widely adopted, we’ve arrived in the “post-EHR era” — and the CIO’s role is shifting.
While CIOs haven’t traditionally been financially focused, they are now key players in the cost improvement conversation. The CIO has two vital responsibilities specific to driving out costs: stewardship of the organization-wide IT spend and enabling cost savings initiatives to produce real savings. If a CIO is not viewing his or her role in this way, the organization is undoubtedly not realizing all of the savings available to them.
