2022 Stronger - P143 - New Partnerships and Data Standardization Reduce PSI - On Demand
Since 2019, NorthShore University HealthSystem has acquired more than 700 inpatient beds through partnerships with Swedish Hospital and Northwest Community Hospital. The addition of comparative data to our enterprise data warehouse and analytics culture has allowed us to standardize scorecard measures and further scale our analytic capabilities into the hands of decision-makers and action-takers across our hospital system. Reviewing our patient safety indicators (PSI) in a multidisciplinary, standardized format and utilizing a national comparative database as our systemwide reporting tool has allowed us to benchmark competitive targets and significantly reduce our PSI 90 composite rate.
