Enhanced reporting and efficiency, significant reductions in readmissions in congestive heart failure patients and added leverage at contract negotiation are just a few advantages Bon Secours is deriving from its EHR-based data collection tools, explains Robert Fortini, vice president and chief clinical officer at Bon Secours. Fortini talks about the health system’s shift from home-grown methodologies to the sophisticated IT knowledge base powering its population health management program, resulting in data that has a “compelling” effect at contract time. Robert Fortini drilled down on Bon Secours’ tools and protocols for data analytics during an October 3, 2012 webinar, now available for replay, “Improving Population Health Management Through Effective, Efficient Data Analytics,” a 45-minute webinar sponsored by The Healthcare Intelligence Network.
