CareMeasurement to the Rescue
For too long, you've had more data than you know what to do with, but still no way to spot all the factors that impact clinical outcomes and costs. That's why it's so hard for everyone to figure out - much less agree on - where to make changes.
With our unique "See the Details, Compare the Findings, Develop the Playbooks”- approach, Avant-garde Health gives you the level of detail you can't see now.
See the Details
Your hunch about what needs to change is probably right. At least, you hope it is.
You think you know what it would take to cut costs in the OR, or reduce the time in the PACU, or lower the likelihood of readmissions. But all you have are pages and pages of incomplete data and some equally unhelpful, albeit colorful, charts. Meanwhile, everyone on your team has a different idea about what to do next. But no one has the details to make a strong case or a truly well-informed decision.
With Avant-garde Health, you can see the details. Drill down to a level of clinical, financial, and operational detail that you weren't able to see before.

Compare the Findings
Your organization is doing well overall. Probably.
It's hard to tell when you don't have a true apples-to-apples comparison of how your costs and clinical outcomes stack up against your peers. After all, it's not like other doctors, departments, hopitals, and healthcare systems are going out of their way to publish all their clinical, financial, and operational data just so you can benchmark against it. But without that kind of benchmark data, how are you supposed to know what's really working, what isn't, and what opportunities you're just completely missing?
With Avant-garde Health, you can compare the findings. Benchmark the data across your department, your hospital, your health system and others like yours.

Develop the Playbooks
Everyone agrees that changes need to be made. But no one agrees on how to make them. And the more you talk with the leaders involved, the more you begin to realize that they don't even see eye-to-eye on what the changes should be. You've got different doctors, departments and hospitals that have to get on board, but it's tough when everyone has their own priorities and no one has a solid plan.
