Case Studies

A few of our recent successes are listed below. Contact us for information about how Health Quality Innovators (HQI) consultants can help you achieve similar results.

Value-Based Payment/Quality Improvement. A regional hospital hit by Medicare payment penalties turned to HQI for analysis and an action plan. We identified where improvement activity would yield the greatest impact, identified the drivers of low clinical performance and developed a roadmap for system-wide changes.

Clinical Transformation. An independent, suburban family practice sought our assistance to increase the efficiency of day-to-day operations so that they could take on a larger number of patients. Through a combination of analysis, observation and interviews, we delivered recommendations for streamlining office visits and are supporting changes that leverage technology and support “top of license” staffing.

Performance Analytics. An urban family practice wanting to manage its performance in multiple insurer incentive programs asked HQI to create a simple dashboard. The resulting web-based tool pulls together data from their EHR system and other sources into a snapshot of performance on key clinical and operational metrics. HQI also is working with a community hospital on a similar project.
