Multiple hospital systems needed to cut costs, reduce patients’ length of stay, acquire actionable financial performance data, address readmissions as well as improve management of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and sepsis.

  • The solution
    The organizations selected IBM® comparative benchmarks to better analyze care and quality data, identify opportunities to save money, identify efficiencies and improve performance.

 

  • The benefit
    Upgraded identification of performance improvement opportunities in staffing levels, skill mix, productivity, utilization, patient volume and facility capacity, 100 percent compliance in some facilities for tracking sepsis measures, an 80 percent reduction in the unplanned COPD readmission rate, hundreds of thousands of dollars in savings and significantly reduced patient lengths of stay.
