Trinity Health Partners with WhiteCloud Analytics to Drive Healthcare Performance Improvement

Wednesday, April 12, 2017

WhiteCloud Analytics, a leading provider of healthcare performance management solutions, announced a strategic partnership with Trinity Health, one of North Dakota's largest care systems. This collaboration will enhance the health system's ability to optimize outcomes and reduce cost of care for their patients.

We believe care providers are the true change agents of healthcare reform, said John M. Kutch, President and CEO for Trinity Health. WhiteCloud's applications are uniquely designed to inspire independent performance improvement with key stakeholders. By giving clinicians access to relevant performance information, we can facilitate collaboration, share best practices, increase the value of care and ultimately improve the health of our community and region-at-large.

The WhiteCloud™ platform incorporates performance management technologies, advanced healthcare analytics and modern behavior sciences to connect provider execution to health system strategies. WhiteCloud solutions arm health systems with technology that drives improvement in a value-based world by aligning the organization and engaging physicians in transformative care.

The partnership with Trinity Health includes immediate deployment of WhiteCloud Acute Performance, an application driving continuous quality improvement and elimination of waste in hospital settings, and Practice Performance to engage care providers with health system goals while empowering them to lead healthcare transformation. WhiteCloud Population Performance will also be implemented to facilitate population management, improve health and reduce total cost of care.

Trinity Health's initial cost-savings will be focused on sepsis, orthopedics, obstetrics, general surgery and primary care.

Health systems must be both clinically and financially accountable for the care they provide to ensure organizational viability, said Bob Lokken, CEO for WhiteCloud Analytics. Trinity Health recognizes this and is committed to providing high-quality and cost-effective care. We're proud to provide a performance management system that empowers providers to improve patient health and reduce costs.
