Using Data Analytics with Clinical Staff to Evaluate Length of Stay and Patient Satisfaction

For several years, Regions Hospital successfully focused on shortening length of stay (LOS). Regions-a 454-bed, level-1 trauma, urban, safety-net hospital in St. Paul, Minnesota-is part of the Health Partners integrated care network.

Since financial and analytics leaders were part of this discussion, Regions was able to evaluate the data and determine objectively whether this theory was valid.
