View this webinar replay to hear from Ellen Hargett, Executive Director at DeKalb Quality Institute on how DeKalb achieved a dramatic reduction in complications, despite extreme resource limitations. Ellen shares their journey that led to a reduction of complications and length of stay index resulting in more than $13 million in cost avoidance.
Kathy VanEnkevort, Senior Vice President of Provider Client Solutions at IBM Watson Health shares a three-part strategic framework: implementing processes that engage physicians and care teams in knowing the state of their quality of their health care services, seeing the risk in that quality and intervening, and engaging the physicians and care teams to first do no harm.
During this webinar, the presenters:
- Differentiate the value and expected outcomes of data driven teams versus traditional hospital committees
- Outline the steps necessary to drive improvement in key clinical performance metrics
- Demonstrate use of Lean Six Sigma as a performance improvement methodology
