Margin of Excellence – ICU Utilization
The intensive care unit (ICU) is where some of the most critically ill patients are seen for close observation and monitoring. However, the decision to admit patients to an ICU and how they are treated is often dependent on multiple variables, such as patient clinical status, practitioner discretion, institutional policies and procedures and hospital capacity. ICU admission is often a subjective call, rather than one guided by the evidence. Unjustified variation in ICU care, leading to overuse or misuse, has potential clinical consequences and contributes to unnecessary spending, making this a prime target for optimization.
Premier’s newest white paper highlights:
- Data-driven insights and benchmarks on variation within the ICU, including 10 diagnoses with the highest levels of unjustified variation.
- Success stories of how hospitals and health systems are driving improvements in ICU care.
- Best practices which can be leveraged to tailor ICU optimization based on an institution’s needs.
