Clinical variation can result in negative outcomes, higher costs, and patient dissatisfaction.  With reimbursement increasingly tied to clinical outcomes, patient experience, and cost, improving clinical variation provides an important opportunity for better outcomes, reduced costs, and increased reimbursement rates. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify how to accurately measure the results of clinical variation.
  2. Describe how supply chain professionals can assist in the improvement of practice patterns in the clinical setting.
  3. Formulate opportunities for reducing clinical variation across all programs and services.

Supply chain visibility and analytical models are typically based on hindsight. Predictive analytics and evidence-based supply chain strategies offer an opportunity to use historical data to generate projective models that support more informed decisions and achieve cost savings
through analytics and standardization. Today’s models of mining historical data for opportunities will lead to producing predictive analytics of the future.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Analyze the ways predictive analytics can make the supply chain process more accurate.
  2. Identify appropriate targets for predictive analytics.
  3. Describe techniques to generate projective models of standardization.

As IDNs look for opportunities to reduce costs while improving patient outcomes, utilization management takes on increasing importance. This session will use examples of evidence base medicine, utilization reduction, clinical outcome improvement and cost reductions leading to a deep dive diving into the Ochsner Clinical Pathways where physicians formally standardize products and processes by DRG and Disease State showing reduction of utilization while improving quality and clinical outcomes. We will also provide examples of Supply Chain/Nursing initiatives demonstrating CQO (Reducing Cost, Improving Quality and Clinical Outcomes) while decreasing utilization.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss ways that utilization management can effectively reduce costs.
  2. Analyze how utilization decisions are made.
  3. Describe the ways that utilization management and review can improve outcomes and reduce costs.
