The story behind the numbers...

The Challenge

Hoag Memorial was struggling to build physician engagement in their performance improvement initiatives.

The organization lacked the reports, peer comparisons and benchmarks needed to make meaningful change.

  • Short-term acute care facility
  • 518-bed main hospital
  • 72-bed orthopedic center
  • 416,000 claims annually
  • 1,700 affiliated physicians and 6,000 employees

The Solution

By partnering with MedeAnalytics, Hoag was able to access dashboards and scorecards to benchmark physician performance and enhance documentation practices. Specifically, the organization gained the ability to:

Perform analyses based on clinical bundles, DRG groups, hospital peer and cohort benchmarks, and physician stratification

Cultivate a culture of continuous documentation improvement and excellent clinical program performance

Leverage actionable insights to educate physicians and help them focus on gaps in care and documentation

Drill down into scorecard data and causal analysis key to performance improvement

Identify a service line (elective procedure) unique to their needs

Presbyterian is already working on plans to further their predictive and optimization analytics with MedeAnalytics innovative solutions.

“Leveraging data driven insights from our CDI initiative helped us engage and educate our physicians, foster healthy competition, and enable higher productivity and performance.”
