Improving the quality of care delivery is at the heart of what we do, and for years we’ve helped our members improve their performance and drive outcomes through actionable data, collaborative innovation through QUEST® and performance improvement expertise. Through that experience Premier has developed a standard methodology to drive high-value care. Quality improvement requires a clearly-determined routine, well-defined metrics with targets, a firm culture of accountability, and deep executive engagement.

Premier’s quality improvement data analytics and advisory services are part of an integrated system that helps providers improve quality while safely reducing costs. We use an industry-leading intelligence platform and a robust database to reveal customized savings opportunities. Our data-driven approach to quality improvement empowers you to:

  • Reduce average length of stay
  • Reduce readmissions
  • Reduce hospital-acquired conditions (HACs)
