Accenture, Trinity Health Team Up For Patient Care Initiative; Paul Conlon Comments

accenture_ExecutiveBizAccenture recently collaborated with Trinity Health to help manage clinical care and treatment for more than 10,000 clinicians at the latter’s 49 hospitals.

The collaboration sought to determine system-wide opportunities for managing clinical and disease management outcomes, Accenture said Tuesday, through the Unified Clinical Organization model, which seeks to coordinate care and help standardize care practices.

UCO was formed as part of a three-year initiative to establish new clinical practices and Accenture estimates UCO could help cut $17 million in annual costs on sepsis care and help reduce sepsis-related mortality rates by 18 percent at Trinity Health.

As one example, the company reported streamlined processes helped improve medication reconciliation completions for admitted patients by 62 percent.

Paul Conlon, Trinity Health’s senior vice president for clinical quality and patient safety, said clinician-led teams applied industrial strength analytic and change management tools through the collaboration.
