Sg2 Showcases Its Health Reform Solutions at HFMA's Annual Conference

Growth and Clinical Performance Systems Take Center Stage at Industry's Premier Finance Conference

SKOKIE, IL--(Marketwire - June 21, 2010) -  Sg2, a future-focused health care information company, is exhibiting at the 2010 Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) Annual National Institute (ANI) on June 21 and 22 in Las Vegas, NV. Sg2 will showcase its reform-ready systems that enable providers to plan smart growth strategies and clinical performance improvement across the full care continuum:

  • Sg2's the EDGE® Growth System helps uncover opportunities to grow sustainable, appropriate and profitable volumes. It is built around Sg2's 10-year Impact of Change® disease-based localized forecast, which projects demand by disease, patient type and service area for both inpatient and outpatient settings -- an industry first. The EDGE addresses critical topics including service line growth projections over the next decade, case mix alignment with market growth, and strategic plan modifications given the impact of health reform.
  • The Sg2 INSIGHT™ Clinical Performance Management System improves performance with a focus on changes introduced by health care reform legislation. By tracking key metrics and benchmarking performance against peer hospitals, INSIGHT identifies specific areas of improvement at the enterprise, service line, disease and physician levels. This clinical integration tool identifies performance changes that drive financial improvement across the care continuum. INSIGHT focuses on issues including reducing potentially avoidable admissions and readmissions, improving margins on Medicare, hospital-physician alignment and leading practice benchmarks.

Sg2's Systems of CARE™ (Clinical Alignment and Resource Effectiveness) methodology is at the core of all Sg2 solutions and addresses clinical integration issues such as physician performance and patient care handoffs that span inpatient and outpatient settings -- particularly crucial in this new marketplace. "In today's challenging health care climate, organizations want tools that ensure financial success and solutions that address health reform across the care continuum," says Michael Sachs, Sg2 Chairman and CEO. "Sg2's systems identify opportunities to grow profitable and sustainable volumes while evaluating reform performance metrics at the enterprise, service line, disease and physician levels. These features are core to today's business and a powerful approach to staying competitive in a changing environment."
