Ther might be an opportunity for both and make it a win win for all involved.

If the data did allow them to get back to causes and eliminate them, it would be a huge value. If it is used to maximize payments and profits, the value is somewhat less.

It would be interesting to hear more about what data the project will be collecting. In order to lower mortality rates through sepsis and congenitive heart rates I'm wondering if they are going to look at conventional data points or explore others which may lead to some new discovery of what causes may be resulting in those outcomes.

I really thnk the idea of consolidating analysis across large medical groups is overdue. There is so much we can learn from the process and the outcomes of so many critical medical conditions. I am glad to see this group making the leap, are there any plans to compare their results to other health groups to create best practices across health care groups?

I really hope this approach works so well that others will follow.

@Tomsg. I know that with some health organizations saving lives seems to take a backseat to the dollar, but Dignity Health says they are putting the saving of lives and the experience of the patient right up front.

Maybe we ought to call for some sort of coordinated assault -- you work on sepsis, you on diabetes, you on renal failure, and so on.

Beth. Dr. Colorafi didn't specifically mention sharing their best medical practices with other health organizations, but that's one thing that seems to happen once treatments prove successful, at least from what I've seen over the years.

For some reason, that doesn't seem to be the top priority of most of these companies. Strange.

@Jim, it sounds like Dignity Health is being really smart about how to get to where it wants/needs to be with analytics. Whenever I hear about analytics projects like the one Dignity Health is undertaking on better understanding sepsis, I do hope that the findings will become available for all health systems -- or that other health systems are able to add in their data, too, if that helps the cause. Did Colorafi give any indication whether there'd be collaboration with health organizations outside of the Dignity Health system?
