The Difference a RHIC Makes?
August 18, 2016
Measuring hospitalizations for patients with conditions that if well managed could have been avoided is a recognized measure of primary care quality. So what happens to hospitalization rates for ambulatory care sensitive conditions, or ACSCs, in communities that have a Regional Healthcare Improvement Collaborative like Better Health Partnership? Fewer hospitalizations and lower costs, according to a recent analysis by JT Tanenbaum, an MD/PhD student working with Better Health's President and CEO, Randall D. Cebul, MD.

The analysis shows that ACSC hospitalization rates in Cuyahoga County were significantly higher but evolved similarly to Ohio's next five largest counties during 2003-2008, before Better Health's work began. But ACSC hospitalization rates in Cuyahoga County fell significantly more in 2009-2011 and again in 2012-2014. The result: an estimated 5,748 hospitalizations were averted, saving an estimated $39.7 million.

More evidence that primary care improvement collaboratives like Better Health can really make a difference.
