Visual Analytics for Evidence-Based Care at the Providence Brain and Spine Institute

The 'triple aim initiative’ framework seeks to optimize health system performance by improving population health and patient experience while decreasing per capita costs. Within this model, coordinated care is a critical success factor. However, remote facilities often lack resources to deliver timely patient data to their greater partner network.

Facing similar resource constraints, Providence Brain and Spine Institute (PBSI) implemented Tableau to monitor and improve stroke care in their 34-hospital telestroke network facilities. Acute stroke care quality and performance dashboards successfully enabled PBSI to provide partner site facilities with contextualized and benchmarked patient data.

Tune into this webinar to hear how a single analytics platform enabled PBSI to realize a ‘triple aim initiative’ for population health management.

In this webinar, you’ll learn how PBSI:

  • Uses Tableau for quality and performance tracking dashboards
  • Established an analytics strategy within their partner sites
  • Deployed and maintain dashboards in a network with diverse needs and resource allocation
