Reducing Variation in Post-Acute Care Through Data Transparency
Large and diverse provider networks of care often have unrecognized, inadvertent, and costly variations in care. Frequently, hospitals and independent practices lack access to data that would allow for comparison and an understanding of unnecessary variation between its post-acute care referral patterns to those of other providers, facilities, or geographical areas. Learn how an organization used MSSP claims data and analytics to analyze variation in total joint replacement at a network, region, facility, and individual physician level. Transparent sharing of information at these levels resulted in open dialogue and motivation to change practice, ensuring patients receive the best care in the most appropriate care setting.
