Premier launches industry-first quality cycle management system
Premier has introduced a comprehensive system that predicts the financial impact of federal payment programs to health systems based on clinical outcomes.
Premier Quality Cycle Management provides automated software-as-a-service (SaaS) analytics powered by Premier’s performance improvement platform PremierConnect. These analytics enable health system leaders to identify, in real-time, which facilities, clinicians and clinical outcomes are impacting reimbursement opportunities, as well as benchmark performance with peers both at the health system and facility level. It also includes Premier advisory services to accelerate strategic improvements in clinical integration and care quality optimization. By combining these services, health systems can leverage actionable intelligence to generate meaningful performance improvements across the continuum of care.
“Under the multiple federal payment programs that measure healthcare provider performance, integrated health systems are challenged with fully understanding the financial impact and drivers of clinical outcomes across all of their acute care facilities, physician groups and post-acute care facilities,” said Liz Martin, Vice President of Quality, at Riverside Health System, which recently began using Premier Quality Cycle Management. “Health system leadership need visibility to their outcomes across the continuum so they can target and prioritize the areas with the greatest opportunities.”
