2022 Stronger - P145 - Using Quality To Drive Cost/Case In Surgical DRGs - On Demand
Temple University Hospital is a large-scale academic medical center focused on patient excellence. To improve our quality metrics, we convened focused teams around different diagnosis-related groups (DRGs) to streamline all clinical milestones and pathways for these similar patients. With this process, we proved that decreased clinical variability within a DRG leads to improved patient outcomes while also achieving a significant savings of $25 million in the project’s first two years.
