Clinical Intelligence (CI) Teams with HFMA Region 5 on Recent Clinical Variation Webinar

The presentation provides executives with a clinical variation reduction strategy roadmap based on a proven strategy of driving clinical, operational, and margin performance improvement. 

 Clinical Intelligence recently teamed with HFMA Region 5 to tell the story of how United Health Services, Inc. (UHS), a community health system located in New York State, reduced unwarranted clinical and financial variation by leveraging its internal data and establishing a shared governance structure. Laurie Jaccard, CI’s Founder and President, co-presented with Dr. Jeffrey Gray, Hospitalist Program Director at UHS, and Nancy Rongo, RN, Chief Quality Officer at UHS.

The webinar’s learning objectives included:

  1. Defining the study of clinical variation and the potential clinical and financial benefits associated with reducing unwarranted variation (waste)
  2. Providing an operational framework for a clinical variation reduction strategy led by executive and physician champions
  3. Presenting a hospital case study leveraging a systems process approach for small and large bowel surgery
