(8/12/13) In the opinion of Dr. Wayne J. English, it doesn’t take much for collaborative quality improvement projects to demonstrate a return on investment... Notable outcomes from MBSC projects to date, he said, include a 24% decrease in complication rates from 2007 to 2009, a 35% decrease in readmission rates decreased from 2007 to 2009, and a 35% decreased in ED visits from 2007 to 2010. "The decline in ED visits alone resulted in overall savings for BCBS of Michigan of $4.7 million and an overall savings for statewide plans of $14.6 million," Dr. English said.
