A 17% decrease in direct cost of care for every coronary artery bypass graft procedure was achieved, leading to a dramatic impact on affordability for patients. Throughout 2019, there was an 11% increase in surgical volume through higher demand and improved capacity. This collaboration led to a direct beneficial impact on every key stakeholder – patients, providers, and the hospital. This solution was particularly important given that less than half of the patients treated at this hospital had access to health insurance. Profitability was increased by 8% and maintained using a lean six sigma performance improvement plan.
The business intelligence tools provided by Surgisphere proved to be instrumental in gaining insight into healthcare operations. Both the tools and system integration into the analytics platform were provided for no charge. Access to a team of lean six sigma performance improvement experts was provided for a very nominal charge – effectively covering travel, room and board, and housing. This hospital now serves as a standard for effective change management and performance improvement in India.
