Fortini covers the following:

  • The types of registries Bon Secours uses to identify patients in need of care coordination;
  • How Bon Secours has streamlined the time that it takes for nurses to document their patient interactions, including details on the training that the end users receive to efficiently use the system;
  • The details on a predictive modeling tool that is embedded within the documentation system, including the formula used by the model to identify patients at-risk of readmission;
  • The role of data analytics in a shared saving agreement between Bon Secours and Cigna; and
  • Results from the program, including the impact on all-cause readmissions, patient and physician satisfaction and physician visit volume and productivity.
