A key to success for any organization is finding a way to unite departments and individuals around common objectives and a shared strategic plan. For large health systems that employ thousands and have hospitals across multiple states, this alignment can be highly difficult to achieve. With the right approach and a strong data analytics platform, however, it can certainly be done.
Ballad Health spans 21 hospitals (plus other facilities) in 29 counties across 4 states, employs 14,000 individuals and works with 800+ physicians. With leaders and departments moving in various directions, the organization was struggling to organize projects and initiatives in an efficient, cost-effective and comprehensive manner. Specifically, Ballad wanted to improve compliance across the system, including automating tracking processes, improving team accountability, enhancing visibility into audit project-level data, and filling in missing essential functions.
MedeAnalytics Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) now provides Ballad the insight and tools it needs to continuously improve strategic plan management and alignment across the enterprise. With approximately 250 individual users across various departments and sites, the EPM solution helps the organization clearly define, track and execute on its strategic and operational objectives. The unique capabilities within MedeAnalytics solution also gives leaders complete visibility into project progress (or lack thereof), which in turn drives team accountability and ensures timely completion.

“EPM allows us to solve issues creatively, decrease administrative burden among managers and improve employee accountability and engagement.”
