Rethink: LTACH Performance Management

Rethink: LTACH Performance Management

Identify, Target, Track.

Vindicet''s health data system (VHDS) is a performance management reporting system designed exclusively for long term acute care hospitals. With vhds you can identify areas for improvement, establish realistic targets and track your progress against goals.

VHDS'' executive summary reports give you a landscape view of the clinical outcomes, quality and financial performance metrics you need to run your business. Use them to ensure that things are running smoothly, and to identify areas in your hospital that might need improvement.

With data from over 400 ltach hospitals VHDS'' benchmarking reports let you set performance targets and goals by comparing your hospital with other hospitals like you - controlling for variables like size, hospital type and geographic region.

Once set, use trend reports to track key performance indicators over time and monitor your progress. Detailed data exports, including calculated fields, let you take your data out of VHDS for analysis in programs like Excel.
