Leverage data analytics on 70+ metrics like readmissions, mortality, length of stay, volume, cost of care, and more. Dexur distributes data into quarterly, yearly, and rolling three year time periods to chart a clearer overview of trends. The data is risk-adjusted at a DRG level and for performance-driven metrics. Cost of Care data for each metric is taken over 30, 60, 90 days and 1 year period to show trends in post-acute expenditure and discharge rates
Compare physician outcomes on these 70+ outcomes with peers to gauge performance and scope of improvement. Physicians are ranked based on metrics like average cost per hospitalization, in-hospital mortality and readmission rates.
Length of Stay (LOS) is an important metric used to assess the quality and efficiency of healthcare facilities/physicians. A shorter average LOS is indicative of improved quality and economic outcomes for the patient and hospital.
Lower readmission rate is a key factor facilitating cost control and better quality outcomes. Lower Readmission Rates have lower Medicare Spending Per Beneficiary (MSPB) which improves a hospital standing in CMS’s Value Based Purchasing (VBP) program. Dexur also calculates readmission rates for Medicare’s Hospital Readmissions Reduction Program (HRRP). The value-based program aims to reduce avoidable readmissions at hospitals by incentivising them based on their readmissions for AMI, COPD, Heart Failure, CABG surgery, and Elective Primary Total Hip Arthroplasty and/or Total Knee Arthroplasty (THA/TKA).
Lower Mortality Rate is indicative of better patient outcomes. Further, Dexur also assess mortality rates for CMS’ Hospital Value-Based Purchasing (VBP) Program, which rewards healthcare providers based on a Total Performance Score (TPS). Decrease in mortality rates for Acute Myocardial Infarction, Heart Failure, COPD, Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) Surgery, and Pneumonia will impact Clinical Outcomes, which has a 25% weightage in TPS calculation for VBP.
