OUR RESULTS

ENHANCED PATIENT EXPERIENCE1

25% increase in patient-clinician face time

A leading heart and vascular clinic in the Southeast United States achieved the following:

  • Increased clinical face time ratio from 44% to 67%
  • Decreased total time spent in clinic by 18%

INCREASED CAPACITY2

10 new device clinic patients per week

A Midwest hospital conducting approximately 520 device implants per year achieved the following:

  • Decreased remote lead time by 83%
  • Decreased in-office lead time by 93%
  • Potential revenue impact of $143,700 annually

IMPROVED CLINICAL OUTCOMES3

36% relative rate reduction in heart failure readmissions

A general acute-care flagship hospital in the Northeastern United States was experiencing higher-than-desired 30-day readmission rates for heart failure (HF) patients. With a goal of improving patient care and helping prepare the hospital system for population health initiatives, they engaged Medtronic to develop standardized processes and pathways designed to improve HF patient care across the system. 

  • 36% reduction in HF readmission rate
  • 75% increase in a follow-up appointment scheduling
  • $48,000 Medicare penalty avoided

REDUCED VARIABILITY4

31% increase in first-time on-time starts

Tertiary teaching facility in the Midwest that includes a heart and vascular center with five cath labs achieved the following:

  • Decreased cath lab lead time (all cases) by 20%
  • Decreased registration lead time by 32%

OPTIMIZED RESOURCE UTILIZATION5

200 staff hours per month saved

A leading cardiovascular care center in the Eastern United States achieved the following:

  • Reduced total staff needed from eight to five, enabling reallocation of resources to value-added tasks
