Reigniting the Revenue Engine in the Post-Surge Environment

August 2020

Health systems generate much of their revenue through elective procedures. When the COVID-19 pandemic escalated in March 2020, elective volumes declined rapidly and, in some markets, were shut down entirely. The financial impacts of this shutdown are felt throughout an organization; however, there are certain service lines hit harder than others.

Vizient clinical analytics data reported an aggregated 77% decline between February and April 2020 in the five service lines with the highest overall elective surgery volumes: orthopedics, oncology, general surgery, spinal surgery, and cardiac surgery.

How Integrated Insights Can Transform Care Delivery

When it comes to performance improvement, knowing where to start is often the biggest hurdle. The answers come from analyzing quality and cost data together.

Integration of APPs to Improve Revenue

April 2020

Many systems are refining the way in which advanced practice providers (APPs) are utilized. Ten years ago, the solution was simply to hire more APPs, which worked in many markets. Now, however, systems are looking at utilizing a team-based care model that effectively uses each provider at top of a license to grow the practice and provide access to care for patients.

Using Data to Personalize Care

December 2019

Data and analytics help people make good health care decisions and manage the total cost of care

Health care works best when we can understand patients as individuals with unique needs.

With analytic tools that integrate all the available data, we can identify care options that promote improved health and reduced costs—like switching medications or joining a COPD care management program. Critically, we now know which option the member is most likely to use and promote that first.
