With the complexities of a bundled care environment, detailed data at the provider level is invaluable. The Resource Group has responded to Genesys Regional Medical Center’s request for provider level data with not just a single report but a ‘living’ data file that is updated on a weekly basis. This has facilitated the partnering with the orthopedic surgeons at Genesys; all of who are in private practice.

As Chair of the Spine Affinity Group for Ascension, my role is to guide both clinical and operational discussions in support of the optimal environment of care. The Resource Group works closely with us in this effort - with the expected outcome of high quality patient care at best net value.

On behalf of Ascension, The Resource group helped coordinate an effort to reduce implant costs. This was done in a very collaborative manner with the Orthopedic Joint Affinity Group and we were able to achieve tremendous savings across Ascension. The open and frank dialogue ultimately led to reduction in unnecessary variation and more resources available for those we are blessed to serve.
