Every health system in America shares the challenge of better managing costs while maintaining and improving patient care — all while facing continued uncertainty about future healthcare policies. Steward Health Care is now one of the largest for-profit health systems in the nation. CEO Ralph de la Torre wanted to improve patient care by reducing length of stay and optimizing staffing. This session will provide a case study of how Steward Health Care leveraged data to seek insights that are now driving their business and clinical strategies and enabling their organization to predict patient census by patient diagnosis code up to three weeks in advance with 99% accuracy. Learn how this innovative strategy also enabled them to reduce length of stay by an average of 1.5 days per patient and save more than $12 million within six months, as well as generate revenue by monetizing the solution with other health systems.
