Patient Safety and Quality
You’re wasting too much time and money collecting data. You should be allocating resources to analyze and act.
- How long does it take to collect you patient safety and quality measures?
- How long to populate that report or dashboard for the quality governance committee?
The answer -- TOO LONG!
What can you do? EVOLVE.
- How are you preparing for the measures CMS will release next year?
- How about 2013? 2015?
If you’re struggling to report Core Measures and other quality metrics now, it’s only going to get worse. Quality will eventually be a larger percentage of bundled payments, so you need a patient safety reporting system that can scale to accommodate any and all measures internal and external.
An integrated data warehouse with data marts for specific data sets has an underlying technical architecture that can scale to include any piece of data, and report and analyze any measure. According to Healthcare Informatics January 2011
, only 50-100 hospitals in the US have an integrated data warehouse. Are you one of them? If not, what are you waiting for?

INCREASE REVENUE & GROWTH
We have helped our clients identify a direct impact to their bottom line from improving quality. Quality should no longer be seen as a cost center, it has evolved to a profit center.
Organizations that realize improvements in quality have tangible benefits to patient satisfaction and outcomes reported, which means greater brand recognition, improved market share, patient confidence, word-of-mouth marketing, and notice from payers (as you negotiate your Alternative Quality Contracts or ACO agreements). This all translates into more opportunities for higher revenue and greater patient volume. Eventually, Patient Safety and Quality data can be leveraged as a foundation that, when combined with other sources, can help uncover additional opportunities for improvement.
