California’s premier healthcare provider, St. Joseph Health, has chosen to implement MEDITECH’s Business & Clinical Analytics solution across their entire network of ministries.

The value-based healthcare delivery system has over 4,000 beds and offers patient services for the entire continuum of care — including children’s hospitals in both California and Texas.

The Business and Clinical Analytics solution helps organizations to monitor and evaluate overall performance, providing executives and staff with a powerful tool for making more informed decisions faster.

"Getting day-to-day metrics into the hands of the people running the hospital is key," said Dr. Michael Marino, CMIO of St. Joseph Health. "This is an opportunity to further our efforts to get real-time information to clinicians and the people in charge of hospital operations."

The award-winning health ministries operate in urban centers, small cities, and rural communities spanning across three major regions throughout Northern and Southern California and the greater Lubbock, Texas area. This means lots of patients, lots of data.

"Our teams will use the Business and Clinical Analytics solution to compare data across our system from both individual regions as well as the full enterprise," said Michelle Woodley, Vice President of Informatics at St. Joseph Health.

"This is aligned with our efforts to provide clinicians with the metrics to enhance clinical quality and day-to-day operations."

The ministries’ emergency departments serve over 600,000 patients each year and log about 4.7 million outpatient visits.

With large patient volumes that span multiple communities, St. Joseph Health will be able to manage ED throughput and analyze trends and key performance indicators across their facilities.
