The shift to value-based care is one of the most significant financial, cultural and technological challenges ever faced by the U.S. healthcare system—and it will affect every stakeholder in the system. Healthcare providers can no longer focus solely on process-oriented measures and instead need metrics that gauge progress to deliver high-value care. This healthcare executive report provides three steps hospital executives can take now as they transition from volume to value and break down silos to create the infrastructure, processes and workflows required to succeed.

In response to concerns raised by healthcare leaders that the absence of adjustment for socioeconomic status (SES) and race characteristics in patient populations impedes the fair comparison of hospitals on risk-standardized 30-day unplanned readmission rates, Truven Health AnalyticsTM evaluated the extent to which risk-adjusted readmission rates for acute myocardial infarction, heart failure, and pneumonia are affected by adjustments for community-level SES factors through its Community Need Index (CNI) and patient race. The study shows there is, indeed, a statistically significant effect. For more, visit truvenhealth.com/wp/readmissionpenalties.

Some factors commonly used to explain poor operating performance do not prevent many hospitals from being highly profitable. For example, Truven Health AnalyticsTM has found that rates of uncompensated care, drug expense, and other factors do not seem to differ between unprofitable and very profitable hospitals. But factors such as Medicaid utilization rates and poor reimbursement rates do appear to impact the least profitable hospitals. One controllable factor that appears to be significant is labor productivity, with the most profitable hospitals posting the lowest labor expense per patient.

Spending on supplies and pharmaceutical services varies among U.S. hospitals. It is not uncommon for hospitals with similar types of patients, including case mix and severity, to have significant differences in purchasing intensity for certain clinical services. Even small changes in efficiency can make a difference for hospitals and health systems, because supply-chain spending typically accounts for hospitals’ biggest spend after labor costs. Costs totaled about $74 billion in 2012, according to the Healthcare Supply Chain Association.

The tax on high-cost health plans, which are often referred to as Cadillac plans, is expected to impact a considerable share of the plans provided by healthcare organizations for their own employees, as much as 39% by 2020. The implications are significant because the excess-benefits tax requires the employer to pay 40% on the value of the portion of the plan that exceeds thresholds set by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Employers also need to consider that the tax is measured as a direct function of plan cost, and not actuarial plan value, and that a number of factors can drive excise-tax exposure.

Truven Health Analytics™ evaluated the extent to which community need— a measure of the underlying economic and social factors that affect the overall health of a community, including income, cultural/language barriers, education, insurance and housing—is associated with elevated rates of preventable hospitalizations or an increased risk of hospitalization believed to be preventable with quality ambulatory care. The results of this investigation reveal a modest but statistically significant association between community need and an increased risk of hospitalizations that are believed to be preventable with good-quality ambulatory care.

The changing healthcare environment has put pressure on healthcare organizations to deliver top-quality care while keeping costs under control. Superior operational and financial performance can be measured by high margins and low costs. But there are significant operational indicators that differ between high- and low-performing hospitals, depending on whether performance is defined by expense or by margin. Often, hospitals with the lowest costs are considered the most successful. But low-cost hospitals do not necessarily behave the same way as hospitals with healthy margins. Low-cost hospitals can include both efficient hospitals and hospitals that are in dire financial circumstances that have forced them to even eliminate expenses necessary for their long-term fiscal health.

Healthcare organizations are allocating significant dollars, time and resources to the implementation of electronic health records (EHRs). While several studies have estimated the cost to purchase and install an EHR to be anywhere between $15,000 to $70,000 per provider1, real-world implementations have soared into the billions.

This is the premise of a survey conducted by HealthLeaders Media and sponsored by Kronos. What constitutes direct patient care?

The combination of the SAP HANA platform and Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory means that enterprises now have new ways to approach data tiering and management. Downtime can be significantly reduced because SAP HANA doesn’t have to reload data back into main memory after a server reboot, and more data can remain in the “hot” tier of main memory, which increases the amount of data that can be analyzed at a time. See this new infographic for a quick summary. Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory also benefits SAP HANA by providing a higher memory density than DRAM, in addition to being byte-addressable. Up to three terabytes of Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory is available per CPU socket on systems configured with future Intel® Xeon® Gold processors and future Intel® Xeon® Platinum processors, which means that an eight-socket server can contain up to 24 terabytes of Intel® Optane™ DC persistent memory.

A&BI platforms are transitioning from delivering simple, manual self-service to supporting more advanced, automated analytic use cases via growing, augmented, ML-driven capabilities. Data and analytics leaders should enable broader use cases to increase their investments’ business impact. Analytics and business intelligence (A&BI) platforms exhibit differences in functional capabilities, particularly in their support for advanced analytics, data source connectivity and embedded functionality. As the market matures, the capabilities required to build and deliver user-friendly analytics dashboards are the least differentiated. The trend toward assisting users with augmented data discovery functionality continues, but many products still lack enough support for this critical capability. When viewed across the whole span of capabilities, significant differences remain between competing platforms and, therefore, also between which are most appropriate for a given use case. In some cases, th
