Every year in the United States, hundreds of billions of healthcare dollars are wasted in the form of unnecessary or inefficient services. By reducing this unwarranted clinical variation — starting in surgery — health systems can improve patient outcomes and control unnecessary spending for both hospitals and patients. So how can healthcare organizations decrease clinical variation to achieve these results? By grouping like patients into cohorts for more clinically meaningful cost and outcomes comparisons. In this white paper, get insights from a roundtable discussion hosted by Becker’s Hospital Review and Olive about the role of AI in healthcare and how it’s not replacing the human workforce but instead making it stronger than ever.
A letter from Olive CEO Sean Lane. Originally published in our magazine, Olive Quarterly.
Olive analyzed data from seven large health systems (65 sites) in our customer database to see if COVID was an accelerant in the existing efforts to lower surgical length of stay (LOS).
Maintaining data privacy and cybersecurity in healthcare is no easy task — limited resources, outdated hardware and software, changing regulatory requirements — all of these add to the risk that a health system’s digital infrastructure could be compromised.
