Improve Clinical and Financial Outcomes by Reducing Harm

Quickly identify where preventable hospital harm occurs to prioritize your quality improvement initiatives.

According to the Canadian Patient Safety Institute, approximately 1 in every 18 hospital stays in Canada involves at least one occurrence of harm.

The World Health Organization estimates between 20% to 40% of all healthcare spending is wasted due to poor quality care.

Hospital Harm Analytics (HHA) enables your hospital to:

01. Immediately identify harm

HHA integrates with your abstracting system to automatically identify harm occurrences daily. You no longer have to wait for publicly reported harm rates.

02. Discover where harm occurs

Analyze harm occurrences by clinical services, HIG, patient units, and physicians to identify unwarranted clinical variation that may lead to preventable harm.

03. Understand the cost of harm

Through seamless integration with your case costing data, HHA will provide detailed estimates on how much harm is costing your hospital, which can be used to build consensus on the need for action.

04. Improve hospital funding

Funding allocations are based on weighted cases. Extended stays due to harm do not typically add case weight. Reducing harm increases both patient throughput and expected service volume.

05. Improve accuracy of your publicly reported harm

Analyze outlier harm cases proactively in-year to find missing patient risk factors that decrease risk-adjusted rates and improve publicly reported harm statistics.

06. Analyze harm by 31 different clinical groups

HHA includes all of the clinical groups defined by the Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI).

07. Account for patient complexity

In addition to raw harm occurrence analysis, HHA gives you risk-adjusted analysis to account for different patient populations and acuity in your hospital.

08. Monitor progress over time

HHA imports historical patient data and gives you tools to measure the ongoing impact of quality improvement initiatives.
