Each service line has its own LOS, utilization and per-patient cost targets. Breaking it into smaller pieces makes it more actionable. Even when you take into consideration that short-term stays are disappearing, LOS is still dropping.


EPSi reports have made all the difference in terms of assessing quality of care in this fragile population…It got us started on the macro-view, which has allowed for a more recent micro-assessment of quality in this population.

We’re not just a provider-centric hospital anymore. We’re an integrated delivery system that’s a next-gen ACO with a provider entity and a financing entity. We need the data to give us the true enterprise picture we need.

We have a lot of patients who have been with us since they were tiny babies. They have lifelong conditions that require special care as they grow…EPSi runs a report of inpatients who are over the age of 17, so we can build relationships with clinicians who will care for them when they go out into the community.
