Stryker Performance Solutions (SPS) launched Episode Performance Manager™, a digital tool to translate raw claims data provided by Medicare into dynamic reports to compare performance of hospitals participating in the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement initiative.
The reports are intended to clarify cost-drivers and enhance visibility into post-discharge patterns and effectiveness to help decision-makers identify opportunities for improvement.
This follows SPS' 2Q16 launch of JointCOACH™, a digital engagement and education platform to coordinate care delivery and improve the experience of patients undergoing joint replacement.
SPS is a unit of Stryker's Reconstructive Division that partners with hospitals and healthcare providers to support improved quality outcomes, patient satisfaction and profitability in the orthopaedic segment.
