A SUCCESSFUL TA EXPERIENCE

KPMG has provided technical assistance services for healthcare transformation efforts across the nation and has an established history supporting implementation of 1115 efforts, as well as working directly with integrated health systems on delivery reforms and IT implementation engagements. As the lead technical advisor to a large state DSRIP program, KPMG has amassed a wealth of experience and implemented solutions that span the gambit of the nine MassHealth TA Domains. One particularly successful experience was the KPMG’s design and execution of a rapid cycle continuous improvement program to help support the reduction of avoidable hospital use in high utilizer patients. The program was offered by the State to (hospital-led) provider networks in order to help them integrate care with community and behavioral healthcare partners and reroute high-utilizer patient pathways, while simultaneously improving frontline operational processes. The program focuses on the development of shared workflows and mutually agreed on performance metrics, implementation of shared protocols for transitions of care, and better communication between teams across the continuum of care. To date, over 900 frontline healthcare professionals across almost 80 hospital-led teams have participated in the program, with results seeing an overall reduction in inpatient high-utilizer activity of almost 13% across participating teams when measured against control cohorts.
