Eleven regional hospitals in the Netherlands have joined forces within the value-based healthcare programme of SAZ hospitals (a collaboration of general hospitals) in collaboration with Value2Health. The hospitals started with diagnosis groups for colorectal cancer and hip fractures. The results will lead to quality improvements and help demonstrate the effectiveness of the care provision. In contrast to most existing initiatives, these regional hospitals aim at addressing value-based healthcare within regional networks.

With this programme SAZ hospitals want to improve the objectivised quality of healthcare and demonstrate the effectiveness of the care provision, starting with a concretisation of value-based healthcare for the patient groups of colorectal cancer and hip fractures. To this end, based on existing data benchmarks on outcomes and costs, these results are exchanged and discussed openly and transparently between the participating regional hospitals.

DICA heeft 21 juni op het jaarlijkse DICA congres een nieuwe generatie interactieve dashboards gepresenteerd voor haar kwaliteitsregistraties: ValueBase Clinical Audit Module.

Dit dashboard maakt kwaliteit van zorg inzichtelijk, op basis van patiëntprofielen die gebruikers zelf kunnen selecteren en aanpassen. Door middel van filters, kunnen ziekenhuizen bijvoorbeeld zien wat het effect is van hemicolectomie bij patiënten met een Charlson index +2 in de leeftijdscategorie 64-72 jaar.

Novel model for automatized insight into quality of care without additional administrative burden

Dutch healthcare analytics firms LOGEX and Value2Health have developed a new model for providing automatized short-term clinical outcomes per intervention.

In cooperation with local gastroenterologists, Dutch healthcare analytics firms LOGEX and Value2Health have developed a new model for providing automatized short-term clinical outcomes per intervention. This big data approach, based on hospital information system data will be published this week in BMJ Open – the open access label of the British Medical Journal. The published methodology, Textbook Outcome, is promising, since it can be applied to a large number of high-volume medical interventions without any additional registration. This publication marks an important step towards outcome measurement of healthcare for medical specialists – and ultimately for patients – especially suited for interventions where traditional methods and extensive clinical registration are not feasible.

Today, both patients and health care providers require more transparency of and insight into the quality of care, yet it is undesirable to burden doctors with additional administrative tasks. Using the novel approach – Textbook Outcome – we demonstrate for the first time insight into short term outcomes, without additional administration.

Textbook Outcome is a composite outcome measure that considers whether a patient has received an optimal treatment process without any adverse events: no re-interventions, and excess inpatient stay and no return to the emergency room. The novelty of this approach is that it can be determined on the basis of ready-available hospital information system data which is necessary for reimbursement from health insurance companies. Until now, this data is not used for providing insight into the quality of care. Yet, by remodeling this data into clinical indicators and combining the indicators into the Textbook Outcome approach, this data can also be used for monitoring quality of care.
