Case Study

Image Image Image Image
A major metropolitan medical center recently built a freestanding Heart and Vascular Institute. Their STS and VQI data did not give them real-time insight into clinical operations, making any performance improvement effort impossible.

Quartz identified a higher than expected return to ER and readmission rate for this service line. Using Quartz, the service line executive implemented quality and performance improvement plans to decrease return to ER by 33% and readmission by 20%.

Quartz also noted a lower than expected CMI for the procedures being completed. Improved documentation and coding led to a 0.355 improvement in CMI, which together translated into an additional $4.7 million in profit.
