When New Jersey’s largest integrated health care delivery system RWJBarnabas Health set about increasing its radial percentages for cardiac catheterizations across the board, a change management strategy was key—but it never could have worked without optimizing their data.
Lauren Burke, MSN, RN, NEA-BC, Vice President of Cardiac Quality and Performance Improvement, will join us for a webinar to talk about how the successful culture shift at RWJBH and how better data and analytics led to changes in clinical workflow best practices. Sign up for “RWJBarnabas Health: Radial Access, A Data Story” on Wednesday, November 18, at 10 a.m. Pacific / 1 p.m. Eastern.
While femoral access is more common, radial access is associated with reduced mortality, fewer complications, happier patients, and lower costs. By setting annual goals for the whole system and then using credible data to show individual hospitals and providers how they were measuring up, the percentages at RWJBH have gone up exponentially every year since 2013.
Matthew Esham, LUMEDX Director of Business Intelligence, will tell us how HealthView Analytics (HVA) helped RWJBH achieve their goals and demonstrate how easy HVA is to use—and to derive insights that will drive change in various aspects of the cardiovascular service line.
Providing treatment and services to more than 3 million patients each year, RWJBH is the result of a merger between Saint Barnabas Health Care System and Robert Wood Johnson Health System. Burke has been an adjunct nursing professor as well as serving in various nursing positions including Chief Nursing Officer. In her current role, she collaborates with cardiologists, cardiac/transplant surgeons, interventionalists, and other clinicians to meet patient quality goals
