Achieving operational efficiencies using a DRG-based tracer approach.

Author information

  • 1Sinai Health System, Chicago, USA.

Abstract

Hospitals can use a DRG-based tracer approach to analyze and correct inefficiencies in the flow of care delivery. The approach works best when the analysis is focused on a high-volume DRG. In the case of Mount Sinai Hospital in Chicago, this approach was instrumental in improving efficiencies of care processes associated with DRG 143: chest pain.
