In this case study, large health systems implement IBM Watson Health to surface improvement opportunities. Using this tool, they were able to cut costs, reduce patients’ length of stay, acquire actionable data, address number of readmissions and improve management of COPD and sepsis.
While the cost of care is increasing, hospitals and health systems are scrambling to cut operational costs without sacrificing quality of care. Download this case study to see how one health system used IBM ActionOI to help reduce wasteful spending, inpatient length of stay, and lower labor costs.
Carson Tahoe Health needed insights to convince its board that an outpatient palliative care program could help address its higher-thanaverage mortality rates and help decrease the risk of future financial impact from those rates
The healthcare system used IBM® CareDiscovery to track and analyze end-stage patient mortality and related length of stay, readmissions, utilization and costs in key disease groups—by comparing those who participated in trial inpatient palliative care and those who did not
The analysis was used to demonstrate to the system’s board that an outpatient palliative care service line was viable in terms of both cost savings and quality-of-care improvement
