Research shows that despite an increase in the number of improvements in clinical, cost, and operational outcomes, there is a lack of sustained improvements. Some of the key challenges can be access to the data and analytics, and adherence to data-driven clinical standards, things the Allina Health Spine Clinical Service Line (CSL) clinical leadership team experienced.
By providing widespread access to the data and analytics, the Spine CSL at Allina Health has been able to continue its reduction in LOS and further improve its reduction in complications, all while increasing cost savings and achieving pay-for-performance incentives.
- $1 million in pay-for-performance incentives received.
- More than $2 million in supply chain savings, a result of data-driven clinical standardization.
- 31 percent of expected complications avoided.
- 22 percent relative reduction in surgical site infections.
