Clinical Informatics Strategies Webinar: Evolving to a High-Reliability Delivery Network Using Evidence-based Order Sets

Featuring Rabin Pant, Director of Clinical Informatics, Methodist Health System
Original air date: April 29, 2015

As CMS beefs up reimbursements for performance-based programs like Value-based Purchasing and Readmission Reductions, Methodist Health System is positioned to capitalize on those larger payments. That's because a few years ago, the Dallas-based organization adopted evidence-based order sets and set the goal of becoming a high-reliability delivery network across their four hospitals. Methodist Health put their focus on improving physician adoption of CPOE and their quality measure performance.

As Director of Clinical Informatics, Rabin Pant has led multiple large IT implementations, and was the key figurehead in driving the Methodist rollout of evidence-based order sets. At 18 months after go-live, Rabin is proud to share some of their achievements and results, and expound on their journey toward high-reliabilty.

Attend this webinar to learn about Methodist’s order sets project and outcomes, including:

  • The Methodist definition and goal of becoming a high-reliability delivery network
  • The architecture of their order set governance processes and medical staff engagement, and how Methodist now reacts to The Joint Commission surveyor 
  • "Emergency management" for CPOE down-time processes
  • The impact of ProVation on the CMS Hospital Value-Based Purchasing and Readmission Reduction Programs
  • The contribution to patient satisfaction
  • Creating a culture of safety by redesigning care with evidence based content
