3/23/2020 Readmissions Dashboards Aid in Reducing Avoidable Hospital Visits
 
A key issue in quality improvement, reducing avoidable readmissions also can bring down healthcare costs for providers and patients alike. COMPdata’s Readmissions Dashboards provide hospital leaders and analysts with a tool for understanding why discharged patients return to their hospital or another hospita for care.
 
The dashboards can assist hospitals in quality improvement and cost saving efforts, all with the goal of better patient outcomes. The dashboards identify:
  • Readmission rates and counts at your own hospital and other hospitals;
  • Hospitals to which patients were readmitted; and
  • Reasons for readmission.
 Reasons for readmission are broken down by Major Diagnostic Categories (MDC) and Medicare Severity Diagnosis Related Groups (MS-DRG). The inclusion of MS-DRG provides greater insight into the care provided to patients who ultimately returned for additional care.
 
COMPdata follows the 30-day All Cause Hospital Readmission methodology defined by CMS. The readmission methodology has been applied to all adult patient visits and all payers.
 
Due to the impact of COVID-19 on our member hospitals, training will be held at a later date.  Please contact COMPdata at compdata@team-iha.org with any questions about the new dashboards.

3/12/2020 Save the Date: IHA’s COMPdata User Group Meetings Postponed to November 4th

In light of recent developments regarding 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), COMPdata Informatics has decided to reschedule our User Group Meeting originally planned for May 6 in Springfield and May 13 in Naperville. Instead, we plan to hold the User Group Meeting on November 4 in Naperville with videoconferencing to Springfield.

Many hospitals have implemented travel restrictions and conditions are changing so rapidly that we felt it prudent to err on the side of caution. We regret any inconvenience this may cause.
If you have questions, please contact compdata@team-iha.org

By attending, you will learn how to leverage these new COMPdata dashboards:

  • Patient Population: Analyze patient counts and occurrences within a defined population;  

  • Readmissions: Learn about your hospital’s readmissions activity and compare to other hospitals;

  • and Chronic Conditions: Analyze chronic conditions defined by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services within hospital visits.

COMPdata experts will discuss developments to the system, including dashboards to assess the impact opioids and cannabis may have on your patients. Users will also have time to share feedback and address data needs.
 
These meetings will benefit COMPdata subscribers who work in:

  • Strategic development;

  • Quality;

  • Physician relations;

  • Finance;

  • Business intelligence; and

  • Planning. 

COMPdata is the most comprehensive source of healthcare and hospital data for over three decades. We provide hospital data reporting services to more than 300 hospitals, health systems, state hospital associations and state data agencies.
 
Additional meeting information will be shared in the coming weeks.
