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. However, during the past two years, Regions saw the numbers begin to increase again. Discussions with clinical staff suggested that one reason for the increase was a belief by physicians that longer LOS resulted in reduced readmissions. 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.
During this webinar, Regions Hospital discusses how they used advanced data visualization tools to examine LOS, evaluate patient satisfaction, and drive new discussions with clinical staff to contain the increase in LOS.
