Improved Outcomes and a Proven ROI Model for Quality Improvement Transforming Diabetes Care
Texas Children’s Hospital is committed to improving care for diabetic patients—one of the most common diseases in school-aged children. So, when it noticed a measurable degree of variation in its management of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) patients, a particularly complex and serious complication of diabetes, it launched an enterprise-wide campaign to drive diabetes care improvement.
Join Texas Children’s as it describes how analytics enabled clinical and operational improvements that resulted in higher quality diabetes care in the inpatient setting while simultaneously documenting the cost effectiveness of care process improvement teams. The session will specifically review how Texas Children’s: transformed its care infrastructure and care processes—including order set utilization, timeliness of ordering and administering insulin; used patient risk stratification patient risk to improve outcomes. You will also discover a framework that Texas Children’s developed in collaboration with the school at Rice University to better understand the return on investment (ROI) of its quality improvement efforts.
