How AdventHealth leverages real-time data to boost outcomes
January 16, 2019 / Mike Miliard
Quality improvement is no longer just a nice-to-have. It's a critical must-do for any health system that hopes to survive in the era of value-based care. But opinions vary widely on the best way to manage data for better outcomes. Robert Altemose, RN, clinical operations analytics director at Altamonte Springs, Florida-based AdventHealth (which until this past August was known as Adventist Health System) explains, doing so retrospectively isn't effective – true quality improvement has to be done proactively and in real time. At HIMSS19, in a presentation with his colleague, Judi Reed, senior manager of clinical operations analytics and user experience at AdventHealth, Altemose will show how his team has helped the health system make the leap from retrospective to real-time analytics, nudging its clinical staff toward higher-quality care as it's delivered.
