Goal: To achieve and sustain a 20 percent reduction in 30-day all cause readmission rates for patients with heart failure (HF) by (date), and sustained reduction in readmission rates through fiscal year XX, while lowering the CMS penalties by X percent. Sample Aim Statements: Establish a baseline of all cause 30 day readmission rates for HF patients, create and validate 30 day and 90 day readmission rates for all HF patients by (date). Goal and Aim StatementsExamples Identify high risk heart failure patients and extend the identification of these patients to a risk stratification model to predict the likelihood of all cause 30-day readmission rates by (date). Schedule a follow-up appointment for all HF patients within 24 hours of discharge with a focus on high risk patients being seen within 48-72 hours after discharge by (date). Establish a medication reconciliation baseline and track compliance in order to achieve 75% compliance by (date). Aim #1 Aim #2 Aim #3 Aim #4

Evaluating Aim Statements • What’s good and what could be improved? • To achieve and sustain a 30 percent reduction in 30-day all cause readmission rates. • To improve patient care. • To establish a baseline C-Section rate and validate data by (date). • To improve variation in outcomes, while lowering our costs. • None. Group unable to come to consensus.
Goal and Aim Statement Team Exercise Scenario: You live in California and you have decided to take your family of three persons for a visit to your grandparents in New York for seven days in June, 2015. You’ve allocated a budget of $5,000 to cover all of your expenses. After the vacation you want a thumbs up rating from your family. Exercise: Using SMART principles • Define your Goal • Develop 3-5 project Aim Statements that will help you achieve your Goal
Goal: To take my family of three to visit my grandparents in New York for seven days in July, 2015, within a budget of $5000, and with a thumbs up rating from my family, two days from when we return home. Sample Aim Statements: • Talk with my grandparents and my family about possible dates that work best for them in July, 2015, by (date). Goal and Aim Statement Team Exercise • Investigate transportation options and transportation costs between California and New York — with date options determined from Aim #1 —by (date). • Review optional day trips and excursions within two to three hours from my grandparents home, including features and costs — and understand my grandparents and family’s preferences — by (date). • Establish — and gain alignment with my family — on a budget allocation, including transportation, lodging, meals, excursions, gifts and misc. items by (date). Aim #1 Aim #2 Aim #3 Aim #4
Learning Objective # 2 • Learn how to determine ROI in your initiatives Know the ROI formula Understand the three categories of waste that will help you determine where possible gains can come from Define and distinguish between direct and indirect benefits

ROI Formula (TOTAL BENEFIT) (COST OF BENEFIT) - 100% ROI = x COST OF BENEFIT
Direct and Indirect Benefits Direct Benefits Enhanced efficiency and productivityExamples: reductions in FTEs or less overtime; business process improvement; supply chain standardization allowing lower supply costs; increased departmental capacity; and reductions in capital expense Clinical improvement and waste reduction Examples: lowering LOS; reductions in uncompensated hospital readmissions; lower medication cost per case or per capita; fewer ICU days; and patient safety improvements leading to fewer complications or medical errors Indirect Benefits Can be more difficult to measure Longer-term benefits Examples: an improved medical outcome such as a reduction in future hospitalizations associated with neonatal respiratory distress syndrome (RDS), which will require long-term analysis to reveal an impact on costs; shared savings with payer associated with pre-term delivery rates; the opportunity cost of not purchasing a point solution
Show Me the Money Exercise Scenario: The radiology operations team lost access to their analytics metrics for three years after they deployed their EHR. They now have an EDW and lots of metrics — including measurements like cycle times and referrals — but they didn’t start out with Aim Statements. Now they are trying to define their ROI. … Department operations manager, IT and finance conversation
Sample Visualization • Cycle times
Sample Visualization • Results turnaround times
Sample Visualization • Outbound referral rates over time
Sample Visualization • Order Pareto
Sample Visualization • Anesthesia utilization
Show Me the Money Team participation… do you have some ideas on potential benefits?
Maximizing the ROI of your EDW Best Practice Example Leveraging your EDW to its fullest capacity • Quality improvement includes clinical areas AND operations • Organizational transformation and governance • Establish baselines • Measure results Results • 67% average savings on labor costs • Average time to build reports declined from 97 hours to under 30 hours • 1 EDW report = 10 EHR reports • 25% faster turnaround on remaining EHR reports
Reflection • What did you learn about Aim Statements? • How will you use the ROI learnings in your organization? • What best practices do you have to share from your organization? • …
