Physician Inpatient Practice Analysis™

Measures clinically-adjusted physician inpatient performance on total charge and cost per case, departmental charge and cost per case, gross margin per case, and length of stay. Risk-adjusted performance is also measured on rates of mortality, complications (medical, post-surgical, and post-obstetrical), CMS hospital-acquired conditions (HACs), and readmissions (all-cause and unanticipated). Includes analysis by service line, MDC, MS-DRG, principal diagnosis and procedure, discharge status, and payer group.



“The CareTracks software combines ease of use with advanced functionality, such as statistical significance testing which allows us to identify clinical and financial outcomes with special cause variation, so we can effectively direct and prioritize our performance improvement activities. We are very pleased with the support we are receiving from Comparion to successfully implement the program with our hospital and its medical staff of over 900 physicians.”
