Every industry under the sun is trying to innovate using the latest technologies - and the healthcare industry is no exception. The pressure to innovate is building by the day. And let us tell you: Innovating in healthcare is not easy.

A large number of innovations come in subtler forms and shapes. Feel free to label your smaller efforts as innovations too. Improvements in your procurement process and creating a harmony between your legal and information security functions are two good examples. Onboarding new services and solutions are innovations, too.

Health Systems are beginning to understand the need to continuously evolve not only in what it innovates, but in how it innovates. Part of this evolution is recognizing the value in external partnerships to advance the culture of innovation.

As part of this evolution, this initiative intends to help set the standard in being easy to do business with. To this end, the initiative will work across the ecosystem to define standards to help develop approaches that both help quickly find and efficiently evaluate solutions, and methods to support adopting and scaling those solutions across our enterprise. Recognizing the necessity to measure that which is important, our group intends to first work with the industry to define what it means to be "easy to do business with".

Returning to the hospital for unplanned care disrupts patients’ lives, increases their risk of harmful events like healthcare-associated infections, and costs more money. Hospitals that give high quality care can keep patients from returning to the hospital and reduce their stay if they have to come back.

The Medicare Spending Per Beneficiary (MSPB or “Medicare hospital spending per patient”) measure shows whether Medicare spends more, less, or about the same on an episode of care for a Medicare patient treated in a specific inpatient hospital compared to how much Medicare spends on an episode of care across all inpatient hospitals nationally. This measure includes all Medicare Part A and Part B payments made for services provided to a patient during an episode of care, which includes the 3 days prior to the hospital stay, the inpatient hospital stay, and the 30 days after discharge from the hospital.

The MSPB measure score is a ratio calculated by dividing the amount Medicare spent per patient for an episode of care initiated at this hospital by the median (or middle) amount Medicare spent per episode of care nationally. A lower ratio means that Medicare spent less per patient.

A ratio equal to the national average means that Medicare spends ABOUT THE SAME per patient for an episode of care initiated at this hospital as it does per episode of care across all inpatient hospitals nationally.

A ratio that is more than the national average means that Medicare spends MORE per patient for an episode of care initiated at this hospital than it does per episode of care across all inpatient hospitals nationally.

A ratio that is less than the national average means that Medicare spends LESS per patient for an episode of care initiated at this hospital than it does per episode of care across all inpatient hospitals nationally.

"Given the wide variation in both pricing and collection practices by hospitals, measures of billing practices are needed," the authors stated in the JAMA article. "Billing quality is a type of medical quality."

In the same way that medical complication rates are collected for improvement purposes and some are available to the public, metrics of billing quality could be used to create public accoundability for US hospitals.

Patient data access is indeed a ‘right’ patients have always had under HIPAA. The HIPAA privacy rule states that healthcare organizations must grant patients access to their own medical records in a reasonable amount of time for a reasonable, labor-based fee. Interoperable EHRs and patient portals have streamlined this process, making patient data access almost entirely digital and opening up opportunities in the patient engagement space. About 90 percent of clinicians and hospitals offer patient portal access, and although subpar patient adoption presents a challenge, industry leaders are eagerly working on what’s next for patient data access.

The healthcare industry will continue to connect patients with their own health data with the least amount of friction. Now more than ever, healthcare organizations must work to revamp their customer experience. To achieve this, it is imperative leaders leverage the right solutions to identify and eliminate friction from what should be the simplest aspects of the care experience: buying a health plan and scheduling an appointment. Eliminating the friction in these interactions can build the foundation for the convenient care experience patients deserve.
