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 around the utilization of clinical benchmarking data. Clinical benchmarking allows leaders to recognize how their performance compares to clinical peers in similar facilities across the nation, providing for better control of care and cost across the health care organization.
This webinar explores the leading practices for clinical buy-in based on subject matter and outlines pitfalls to avoid. Presenters discuss the data sets that should be mined and displayed to clinicians in order to maximize success, organically develop procedure formularies, drive consistent care, and maximize the highest quality.
How this session relates to the Cost, Quality, and Outcomes (CQO) Movement: Case costs can be reduced by gaining physician and clinician buy-in to reduce variation in care. Procedure formularies can be established to drive consistent care and maximize the highest quality. Outcomes can improve by reducing variation in care and careful selection of the highest quality products.
