Biome Analytics announced that one of its clients, a major California Heart Institute, has reduced its PCI bleeding event rate by over 69% with Biome Analytics applications, while simultaneously reducing costs. Physicians at the client organization are now leading organizational decisions around performance measurement and best practices, resulting in increased clinician engagement, improved patient outcomes, and realizing millions of dollars in cost reduction opportunities.
Leading healthcare systems are using Biome Analytic applications to bring practicing physician insights to the decision-making table, identify organizational best-performers, and enable peer-coaching to elevate practice patterns across the system.
The NCDR risk-adjusted bleeding event rate was above the 50th percentile at this leading institution, and the organization’s Quality Council mandated t hat bleeding events needed to be reduced. However, the individuals on the Quality Council were removed from the day-to -day of practicing medicine in the Heart Institute, and physicians felt that the bleeding event rate was misrepresented because of the complexity and high risk in the served patient population. Practicing physicians wanted to show others in their organization the misrepresentations while seeing if improvement was possible. Aware that traditional performance improvement approaches and system-wide analytic vendors weren’t effective, cardiovascular physician leaders brought in Biome Analytics to find a pragmatic, evidence-based solution to the bleeding event rate problem.
