Key Medtronic Health Systems Advantage Resources
Clinical Performance Improvement
Clinical Performance Improvement solutions deliver new opportunities for hospitals in outcomes management. CPI works with hospitals to analyze their outcome data in three areas: clinical, operational and economic. These solutions help to identify measures for improvement within a surgical episode, assess the processes that drive these measures and create sustainable solutions that address improved quality, reduced episode spend and enhanced experience. Each dedicated team works toward achievement of “Triple Aim”: better health, better care and lower cost and is staffed by a dedicated team focused in data analytics, clinical operations and project management with Lean Six Sigma expertise.
Voice of the Data (Phase I)
In tandem with the hospital system, the CPI dedicated team conducts episode-based performance analytics to identify provider’s end-to-end cost of care. This analysis includes identifying other key metrics such as internal/external benchmarks, cost breakdown and opportunity prioritization and quality and utilization monitoring. Individual physician scorecards are also available and display operational, clinical and economic categories based on risk-adjusted cases.
Voice of the Care Team (Phase II)
The root cause opportunity identification includes in-depth root analysis that identify the top areas of concern revealed from data analysis, care team interviews including onsite assessments and procedure reviews, and quality and efficiency-focused process observations and question-and-answer sessions.
Voice of the Solution (Phase III)
Implementation support accounts for ongoing program management support and best-in-class solutions that allow for potential add-on offerings such as clinical operation optimization, new clinical pathway framework, performance initiatives design and trainings.
