Hospitals Need More Timely, Actionable Information

Value-based Purchasing Puts Hospitals at Risk for CMS Penalties

Hospital associations, departments of health, and quality improvement organizations want to help hospitals succeed in the transition from fee-for-service to value-based purchasing but are challenged in delivering relevant, timely, actionable information. Common limitations of current reporting solutions include:
  • Reports are based on data from years past, too late to help with improvement of readmissions rates, hospital acquired infections, and other outcome measures.
  • Quality metrics are not specifically focused on the high volume, elective procedures that are most sensitive to referrals and patient choice.
  • Cost comparisons do not reflect the full episode costs, ignoring professional fees, rehabilitation, skilled nursing, and other post-acute services.
“Reducing variation and isolating risk starts with empowering care providers with reliable tools that can deliver performance data in context to the broader care community.”

- Sam R. Watson, Michigan Health and Hospital Association Senior Vice President, Patient Safety and Quality
