When it comes to making decisions that positively impact care delivery and business outcomes, great leaders will tell you it's better to rely on data than on myth. It can be a Herculean effort, however, to convince decision-makers that their closely-held beliefs may not be factual and could be dampening organizational progress. Through healthcare analytics, the clinical and financial leadership at Regions Hospital in Saint Paul, Minnesota used data to do just that—and set a strong course for reliable, trusted decision-making that helps address their most pressing issues. As a member of HeathPartners® care delivery system, the largest consumergoverned, nonprofit health care organization in the nation, Regions Hospital (Regions), is no novice to enterprise analytics. Named a "Most Wired" hospital by Hospital and Health Networks magazine four years in a row, Regions uses Epic hospital billing and EHR, Lawson financials, and systems from several core measure and patient satisfaction vendors to provide source data at the enterprise level for McKesson Performance Analytics™. These strong systems, accompanied by a cooperative and inquisitive organizational culture that brings together clinical and financial decision makers together to address pressing issues, put Regions on the path to create powerful healthcare analytics that fuel organizational change.
