In this case study, attendees will learn how UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh integrated actionable, self-services analytics into the broader framework of disease management, with appendicitis care as the prototype.

The results were impressive:  The median LOS dropped by 21%, yielding per-case cost savings of 11%. Based on this success and lessons learned, UPMC is now streamlining care for 30 pediatric conditions, and expanding the impact to positively affect 30% of its inpatients (20,000 annual discharges).

Key takeaways

  • Illustrate the critical nature of delivering actionable data in a timely, accurate and user-friendly manner.
  • Describe the emphasis placed on standardization of care, and on elimination of avoidable variances.
  • Explain the focus on data-driven observations to change physician behavior.

Attendees will also hear about the hospital's initative to advance its analytics program with a machine learning pilot to help identify children with ADHD and reduce overdiagnosis.
