A health system’s quality performance determines every metric that matters—from sustainable revenue growth and physician recruitment & retention to customer satisfaction—and is the primary driver of competition among health systems.

White Paper: Clinical Data Governance

As a first step in an enterprise approach to clinical management, health systems must create a governance structure to determine what measures will truly impact their performance.  

While health system growth is driven increasingly by public rankings and centers of excellence designations, the calculus behind these ratings can vary significantly. However, one near constant is the use of clinical data registry participation to gain this recognition. At the same time, there has been a proliferation of registry options – growing to more than 153 national clinical registries in United States by 2017i. Today, hospitals participate in an average of 10 registries and the top 20 registries are expected to grow in participation at an average of 7% each year until 2021.



As payors and insurers continue to look for means of stratifying payments through Value Based Purchasing, registries are prime resources to assist in aligning incentives to ensure that the right care occurs at the right time, every time. Many registries are already incorporated into national ranking methodologies (e.g. US News and World Report), or in insurers’ narrow network tiers through defining centers of excellence (e.g. BCBS Michigan). Hospitals are also operating amid an empowered patient movement. Growing demands for price transparency and enhanced insurance options, like expanded provider networks and the availability of health savings accounts, illustrate consumerism in health care is unabating. Therefore, it is more important than ever that providers understand patients’ preferences when choosing where to go for treatment.
