Hospitalizations account for roughly half of all health care costs and, as a result, reducing the number of readmissions is the main focus in improving the coordination and quality of care. Many organizations are data rich, but unfortunately, they also tend to be information poor. Understanding where to start analyzing your patient population can be a daunting task.

• Which facilities have a higher readmission rate than others?

• Which ICD9 codes lend themselves to a higher readmission rate?

• Which providers have the highest readmission rates?

In order to answer these questions and more, you need a flexible ,yet powerful, analytics engine to help turn all that data into useable information. This application is one example of how QlikView is helping many providers do just that.
