The Outcomes Pledge Program is designed to address provider concerns related to healthcare complications that result in poor outcomes and higher costs. It is a long-term partnership agreement with clearly defined levels of targeted improvements.  This year, two hospitals collaborated with Medtronic to reduce adverse events, improve patient outcomes and lower costs.

Learn how these hospitals joined the Outcomes Pledge Program to improve clinical outcomes, supported by clinical and financial metrics.  This session will provide an overview of the program and its associated informatics and reporting.
