Case Studies - Lowering Costs

  • Case Study:

    Using Hospital Surgery Data to Drive Savings

    A highly-regarded hospital was confident that its ENT surgery teams were providing best-in-class care for frequently 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 is leveraging MDmetrix not only to improve patient experiences but also to deliver substantial recurring cost savings.

    Using Surgery Center Data To Reduce Costs

    A state-of-the-art surgery center took pride in its clinical excellence and financial efficiency; from its building layout to its clinical workflows, the center was designed to deliver quality care with a carefully managed financial return. Just a few months after providing MDmetrix to its anesthesiologists, however, the center is reducing its drug costs dramatically while improving outcomes. In particular, this center has leveraged MDmetrix to dramatically reduce its use of opioids – thereby limiting risks to patients, alleviating the center’s opioid shortage, and substantially lowering costs.

  • Case Study:

    Increasing Surgery 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 director was able to look beyond traditional OR utilization metrics to identify additional caseload capacity. Working her department chiefs, the director is hiring additional surgery techs and reallocating surgery time, allowing her center to serve more patients while also achieving several million dollars in additional revenue.
