Presentation will examine how SurgicalMetrix helps surgical administrators at Academic Medical Centers optimize performance, improve quality, reduce costs
Ann Arbor, Mich. – Oct. 1, 2015 – Paul Henchey, the Senior Vice President of Product Strategy for ArborMetrix, will speak on Clinical Analytics for Quality Improvement Initiatives at the 28th Association of Academic Surgeon Administrators (AASA) 2015 National Conference in Chicago on Monday, October 5th. In his presentation, Henchey will explore how SurgicalMetrix helps Academic Medical Centers (AMCs) to get the most out of the hospital data they are already collecting.
“Surgical administrators at Academic Medical Centers are in a unique position to help their institutions successfully transition to value-based care models,” said Henchey. “Their expertise in business planning and information management is a critical complement to the clinical expertise of the surgical faculty as they collaborate to optimize performance by improving both quality and efficiency.”
Collaborative organizations aligned with AMCs use Surgical Metrix’s performance management solution to effectively engage physicians through clinically relevant, statistically credible, actionable information drawn from outcomes registries and other sources. Surgeon performance is measured against benchmarks using clinically-validated performance measures of quality and efficiency, which are risk-adjusted with advanced, specialty-specific statistical models.
Leading AMCs, including Vanderbilt University Medical Center and the University of Michigan Medical Center, use ArborMetrix’s cloud-based analytics to understand the variation in the quality and cost of care, leading to improved patient outcomes reduced costs.
