Delivering High-Quality Health Care for Low Cost: Rethinking the Way We Look at Supplies in the OR: 1.5 CEs
Surgical Pricing Reduction Initiative and New Growth (SPRING) is a project with achieved savings of more than $15 million in 2013 and a goal of $25 million in 2014 throughout a 22-facility system. Achieving these savings is actualized by developing the right resources: reports, dashboards, an enhanced doctor preference card update process, and culture change. Empowering stakeholders, both physicians and staff, to understand how their choices impact patient costs often has immediate influence on a change in practice within the operating room. This process change encourages the entire perioperative team to feel responsible for their impact on the bills patients are receiving. In this session, we will discuss the results achieved with SPRING and explain how it can be implemented in facilities of any size.
• Determine key data points and procedure inclusion criteria in order to establish meaningful and accurate cost per case data.
• Describe the process of developing a program that provides staff and surgeons with supply cost information.
• Identify strategies for creating culture change related to cost savings and sustained high-quality healthcare.
