Clinical Matters

Clinical Matters

The Objective Path to System-wide, Evidence-based Healthcare Management

Just as evidence-based medicine is key to exceptional patient care, evidence-based management is key to the well-being and success of health systems.  As reported in our recent 15 Top Health Systems study, the impact of managerial excellence is significant:

  • Lives saved
  • Fewer complications
  • Shorter stays
  • Fewer readmissions
  • Shorter emergency department wait times
  • Higher patient satisfaction 

To achieve excellence, health system leaders must focus on strategic performance improvement in today’s healthcare environment and determine how the process fits into their mission — and then create a plan to drive consistent progress across the entire system. Read the entire study here.
