To strengthen the understanding of value, Allina Health began engaging its employees and physicians in discussions around decreasing clinical variation and utilization of a more disciplined approach called the Clinical Value Process. This approach has enabled the organization to more effectively track both quantitative (fiscal) and qualitative improvements. The result is better patient outcomes, lower costs, and improved experience for its patients, communities, and Allina Health plan members.
Learn how the Clinical Value Process enables a multidisciplinary team approach across an entire system using clinical analytics and collaboration to successfully implement standardized care, improve outcomes, and save tens of millions of dollars annually.
