  • Case Study:

    SURFACING VARIABILITY ACROSS HIGH-FREQUENCY CASES TO REDUCE PACU COSTS

    A well-regarded hospital was confident that its surgery teams were providing best-in-class care for its highest-frequency occurring cases. Nevertheless, the hospital leveraged MDmetrix to quickly identify clinical variations that were causing longer PACU stays. By surfacing these variations, together with real world outcomes, the hospital leveraged MDmetrix not only to improve patient care but also to deliver substantial recurring cost savings.

    INCREASING SURGERY THROUGHPUT & REVENUE

    For years, a highly-efficient surgery center relied on carefully-monitored “block” scheduling processes to allocate OR time. With MDmetrix, however, the center’s OR Director was able to look beyond traditional OR utilization metrics to identify additional caseload capacity. Working with her department chiefs, the director used MDmetrix to reallocate surgery time, allowing her center to serve more patients and to achieve significant additional revenue without added expense.

    REDUCING MEDICATION COSTS

    A state-of-the-art surgery center took pride in its clinical excellence and patient experience. The center’s surgery teams, however, had no practical way to evaluate the effectiveness of their drug protocols across thousands of real-world patients. Although the center’s clinicians worked hard to follow the latest research literature, they found it very difficult to distinguish true “improvement” opportunities from mere “changes.” With MDmetrix, the center’s medical leaders and frontline clinicians were able, for the first time, to effectively measure outcomes across patients and to quickly assess changes to their medication protocols. As a result, the surgery center has significantly reduced drug costs while also improving patient outcomes. In particular, the center leveraged MDmetrix to dramatically lessen its use of opioids – thereby reducing patients risks and alleviating the center’s opioid shortage.
