Case study: Schneck Medical Center

Share this post:

Schneck Medical Center needed to develop a strategy to address a disproportionately high number of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients in its population and reduce the associated readmissions.

  • The solution
    The team used CareDiscovery® to identify the root of the hospital’s rising readmission rate, and formulate a plan to improve its patient-centric approach across the entire care continuum.
  • The benefit
    The data available in the CareDiscovery® solution helped the hospital focus efforts to improve care for COPD patients, resulting in an 80% reduction in the unplanned COPD readmission rate and hundreds of thousands of dollars in savings.
