Value-based care has remade the healthcare landscape for small hospitals. Many are struggling to compete with the larger, better-funded medical centers in the communities they serve. Embracing data and analytics is no longer a luxury for these organizations if they are to succeed and remain competitive. Data analysis can assist senior leaders in identifying opportunities for improvement while balancing long-term goals with short-term pressures. Incorporating data in to the culture and making it a part of everyday decision making will enable smaller hospitals to not only survive, but thrive in the new era of value-based care.

Analytics and Small Hospitals: Embracing Data to Thrive in the New Era of Value-Based Care

  1. 1. Analytics and Small Hospitals: Embracing Data to Thrive in the New Era of Value-Based Care – John Wadsworth
  2. 2. © 2014 Health Catalyst www.healthcatalyst.com Proprietary. Feel free to share but we would appreciate a Health Catalyst citation. Healthcare Analytics The term community hospital conjures up several images: a hospital serving a given populous, providing a significant community service or a stand-alone facility with ambulatory care clinics working together. Perhaps it’s even a government- subsidized facility caring for the poor and underserved. However it’s defined, the majority of community hospitals operate under extremely tight margins and data analytics has been deemed “nice to have if we can afford it.”
  3. 3. © 2014 Health Catalyst www.healthcatalyst.com Proprietary. Feel free to share but we would appreciate a Health Catalyst citation. Healthcare Analytics The transition to value-based care has altered the healthcare landscape, making it difficult for some community hospitals to compete. Using data and analytics is no longer a luxury. Community hospitals are having to embrace analytics, making it a part of their culture and everyday decision making.
  4. 4. © 2014 Health Catalyst www.healthcatalyst.com Proprietary. Feel free to share but we would appreciate a Health Catalyst citation. Analytics and Small Hospitals As Health Catalyst continues to partner with community hospitals around the country, common themes have emerged from organizations successfully implementing a data and analytics strategy.
  5. 5. © 2014 Health Catalyst www.healthcatalyst.com Proprietary. Feel free to share but we would appreciate a Health Catalyst citation. New Roles and Responsibilities To execute value-based care transformation, healthcare organizations are recognizing the need for new roles and skill sets to support the transition. Senior leaders are coming to realize their organization can drive improvement with highly skilled teams to bring together analytics, best-practice clinical content, and process improvement.
  6. 6. © 2014 Health Catalyst www.healthcatalyst.com Proprietary. Feel free to share but we would appreciate a Health Catalyst citation. New Roles and Responsibilities A recent survey by AMN Healthcare reports that 86 percent of healthcare organizations are keenly aware of the need for new types of healthcare professionals. However, it also revealed that a much smaller percentage is actively recruiting executive and frontline employees with value- based care experience.
  7. 7. © 2014 Health Catalyst www.healthcatalyst.com Proprietary. Feel free to share but we would appreciate a Health Catalyst citation. New Roles and Responsibilities Successfully staffing an enterprise data warehouse (EDW) initiative is no small feat. The technical prowess required to build the EDW and derive continued ROI from it, requires highly specialized skill sets. Translation? These professionals are difficult to recruit and expensive to hire.
  8. 8. © 2014 Health Catalyst www.healthcatalyst.com Proprietary. Feel free to share but we would appreciate a Health Catalyst citation. New Roles and Responsibilities Thriving community hospitals realize, however, they cannot begin to identify areas for improvement, let alone implement a plan of action, without these competencies being available. In most instances, the technical staff is made up of existing resources, allowing healthcare organizations to maintain a low- cost entry point for the EDW’s ROI.
  9. 9. © 2014 Health Catalyst www.healthcatalyst.com Proprietary. Feel free to share but we would appreciate a Health Catalyst citation. New Roles and Responsibilities Outsourcing some technical capabilities, such as extracting, transferring, and loading data, frees up capacity for the team to maximize skill sets needed for the EDW implementation and adoption. Professionals with skills such as SQL development for data mining, data modeling, data analysis and BI development (visualization) are the essential roles necessary to drive outcome improvement.
  10. 10. © 2014 Health Catalyst www.healthcatalyst.com Proprietary. Feel free to share but we would appreciate a Health Catalyst citation. IT Efficiency Community hospitals run under very narrow margins so efficiency is imperative. Leadership partners with IT to drive iterative value in short cycles. Together, they frontload exploration and planning, identifying areas to reduce waste. Data analysts quantify the waste and assist the team in prioritizing focus areas to eliminate it.
  11. 11. © 2014 Health Catalyst www.healthcatalyst.com Proprietary. Feel free to share but we would appreciate a Health Catalyst citation. IT Efficiency IT’s contribution is to build the measurement system that accurately reflects the current workflow and measures the impact of any changes made to it. Developed in partnership with clinical and operational leadership, the applications are intuitive and enable physicians to engage in a seamless, natural manner.
  12. 12. © 2014 Health Catalyst www.healthcatalyst.com Proprietary. Feel free to share but we would appreciate a Health Catalyst citation. Physician Engagement The idea of using data and analytics as a means of providing better patient care may be new for some physicians; it can be perceived as too impersonal. Successful, innovative community hospitals with high physician engagement are developing creative ways to reward physicians who engage in continuous quality improvement.
  13. 13. © 2014 Health Catalyst www.healthcatalyst.com Proprietary. Feel free to share but we would appreciate a Health Catalyst citation. Physician Engagement Some hospitals opt for monetary compensation, recognizing that time away from the clinic means lost revenue for the physician. The value physicians bring to the improvement process outweighs the money spent to compensate them for the time they could be spending treating patients.
  14. 14. © 2014 Health Catalyst www.healthcatalyst.com Proprietary. Feel free to share but we would appreciate a Health Catalyst citation. Physician Engagement Many physicians, passionate about improving care delivery, are rewarded by having the opportunity to influence in prioritizing and participating in improvement initiatives. Access to credible data that provides visibility into their work is often payment enough for community physicians mindful of hospital budget constraints.
  15. 15. © 2014 Health Catalyst www.healthcatalyst.com Proprietary. Feel free to share but we would appreciate a Health Catalyst citation. Analytics Make All the Difference By and large the CEO’s of community hospitals are not physicians. They are business men and women dealing with the realities of local board, budget, and political pressures. The CEO must balance long- term goals with short-term pressures while continually striving to deliver superior care to the patients in the communities they serve.
  16. 16. © 2014 Health Catalyst www.healthcatalyst.com Proprietary. Feel free to share but we would appreciate a Health Catalyst citation. Analytics Make All the Difference Analytics play a critical role in these organizations as they strive to compete with the medical centers and integrated delivery networks. Community hospitals tend to be relatively flat organizations, enabling the CEO to engage in the details of the analytics, identify opportunities for improvement, and take action.
  17. 17. © 2014 Health Catalyst www.healthcatalyst.com Proprietary. Feel free to share but we would appreciate a Health Catalyst citation. Analytics Make All the Difference Thibodaux Regional Medical Center, with an IT staff of 18 and recently awarded the top spot in this year’s Health IT News, Best Hospital IT Departments, is one example of a successful, analytics driven small hospital.
  18. 18. © 2014 Health Catalyst www.healthcatalyst.com Proprietary. Feel free to share but we would appreciate a Health Catalyst citation. Analytics Make All the Difference Thibodaux Regional has used lean principles to identify opportunities for cost savings and achieve improvement. Over the last year, Thibodaux Regional’s leadership has focused on improving physician engagement and strengthening the organization’s culture of continuous improvement.
  19. 19. © 2014 Health Catalyst www.healthcatalyst.com Proprietary. Feel free to share but we would appreciate a Health Catalyst citation. Analytics Make All the Difference Using lean principles and KPAs, the physician-led team identified early recognition of sepsis patients as an area for improvement. While the organization was already outperforming the national average, the team set aggressive goals: • Reduce mortality by 25% • Lower costs by 20% • Patient satisfaction rate of 99%
  20. 20. © 2014 Health Catalyst www.healthcatalyst.com Proprietary. Feel free to share but we would appreciate a Health Catalyst citation. Analytics Make All the Difference A cross-functional team created a triage protocol in the Emergency Department and built three and six hour sepsis bundles. To date, the team has reduced sepsis mortality by 11% and is poised to reduce the rate of sepsis mortality by an additional 25%.

Conclusion Community hospitals are having to embrace analytics as they contend with transitioning to value-based care while striving to stay competitive in the communities they serve. Incorporating data in to the culture and ensuring it’s a part of everyday decision making will enable community to not only survive, but thrive.
