Reducing Length of Stay, Readmissions and Cost of Care with Quality Improvement: Real World Evidence from One Health System
Up to 50% of patients are malnourished upon admission to the acute care setting which has an impact on clinical and financial performance measures including length of stay, cost of care, mortality rates, and readmission rates. Advocate HealthCare conducted a Nutrition-Focused Quality Improvement Project resulting in a 26% reduction in length of stay, 29% reduction in 30-day unplanned readmissions and a $4.9 million 6-month cost savings.
Please join leaders from Advocate HealthCare as they discuss their journey for better patient outcomes.
