"Based on a review of the top 20 DRGs, the hospitalist program demonstrated more than $5 million in savings to the hospital. Detailed data and hospitalist awareness of that data is critical to meeting our goals." — Brian Kendall, MD, Medical Director, Hospitalist Service, Regional Medical Center of Orangeburg and Calhoun Counties
To thrive in a value-based care and pay-for-performance world, hospitals may need to improve care quality and patient outcomes, reduce physician performance variation and address process efficiencies.
CareDiscovery® from Truven Health Analytics®, an IBM® Company, is designed to help inform those strategies as hospitals, health systems and the industry transition.
Truven Health CareDiscovery applies proprietary methodologies to your data. These methodologies are created utilizing one of the most comprehensive healthcare claims databases in the US — one that contains 21 million all-payer discharges representing over 2,700 hospitals and that uses the same methodologies as the nationally recognized Truven Health 100 Top Hospitals® program.
CareDiscovery helps providers enhance care insights by benchmarking performance at different levels, such as MS-DRG, physician or any clinical condition.
The robust and objective information in CareDiscovery can provide a data-driven foundation to help you:
Know exactly where you stand with the Risk-Adjusted Expected Readmissions (RAER) calculator.

In addition to the base RAER model, Truven Health offers an enhanced model that adjusts readmission by various community-level socio-economic barriers, such as income and education levels, allowing hospitals to tailor their services based on gaps in care.
With the data and analytic insights from CareDiscovery, your care teams will have access to information that may help them close potentially critical gaps in hospital and health system performance.
