In today’s health care environment, where the quality of patient care and associated costs are heavily scrutinized, clinical benchmarking is an invaluable tool for health care organizations.

As health care organizations strive to reduce costs and improve quality, it is necessary for the supply chain to collaborate with physician and clinician leadership regarding the utilization of clinical benchmarking data. Clinical benchmarking allows leaders to recognize how their performance compares to like-facilities across the nation and clinical peers, so they can better control care and cost across the health care organization.

This On-Demand webinar explores leading practices for clinical buy-in based on subject matter and outline pitfalls to avoid. Presenters will discuss the data sets necessary to mine and present to clinicians to maximize success and organically develop procedure formularies to drive consistent care and maximize the highest quality.
