A disproportionate share of inpatient spending occurs in the intensive care unit. Wide variation in clinical practices, utilization, and end-of-life care introduces an important role for intensivists. This is essential as payers migrate to mandatory bundles and other value-based payment models.
In this webinar, our speakers will discuss proven strategies for reducing delivery costs across all ICU patients, including how to:
- Leverage current data on ICU spending, hospital variation, and opportunities for reducing overutilization
- Recognize the importance of end-of-life care in improving quality and reducing costs in the ICU
- Implement clinical strategies for reducing low-value clinical services, including how to gain alignment with intensivists and leverage information technology
- Engage intensivists on early, proactive goals of care discussions among the most critically and chronically ill patients by referencing best practices
