Premier healthcare alliance's PhysicianFocus, part of its QualityConnect performance improvement program, provides physicians and hospital administrators with quality and safety data drawn from multiple sources. The program helps improve clinical performance and supports professional practice evaluation efforts by pinpointing variances, evaluating processes, and supporting Ongoing Professional Practice Evaluation, the Joint Commission program that measures a practitioner's clinical and behavioral competence. PhysicianFocus provides clinical outcome metrics that can help identify variations in clinical care and monitor ongoing quality, efficacy, and the impact of improvement efforts.

With this tool in place, healthcare providers can drill down to patient-level data to help reduce mortality, complications -- including infections -- and readmissions, and reduce patients' length of stay. The program also provides hospital administrators with online, interactive, and printable views of the data needed to measure productivity, cost savings, revenue, and customer satisfaction.

Overall InformationWeek 500 ranking: 59

Customized healthcare software helped our facility
Our urgent care facility hired www.innovativearchitects.com to build a customized solution for our practice that automates the processes of providing and administering health care so we can focus on patients. Security was a concern, which is why we shyed away from cloud computing. Uniform Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is so important - it facilitates basic healthcare business processes, including claims transactions, remittance advices and eligibility and enrollment transactions.
