Deborah S. Schramko, CPMSM Chief Medical Staff Development Officer, MERCY HEALTH PARTNERS

Through the use of data analytics, Mercy Health Partners ascertained that one of its small rural hospitals demonstrated outlier performance in the use of telemetry beds, when compared with the system average.

The potential opportunity was identified by utilizing the 3M APR-DRG grouper comparison for mortality and risk adjusted like cases, and then personnel at the outlier facility went about developing multidisciplinary teams to develop protocols to standardize telemetry care.

After 10 months, Mercy Health Partners had dramatic cost reduction in not only the percentage of cases where telemetry was used was demonstrated, but also a significant decrease in total costs for telemetry.
