Tackling Clinical Variation with Flagler

The Institute for Medicine says that clinical variation can account for 30% of all the healthcare costs. Clinical variation though remains a complex problem. Only a few healthcare organizations around the world have been successful at eliminating waste while delivering excellent care for their patients.

Clinical Variation Management (CVM) is one of the areas of expertise for Ayasdi AI. Recognizing the potential in Ayasdi’s CVM, Flagler – one of the best hospitals in the country, chose to license the Ayasdi’s CVM software application in 2018. Flagler became one of the first community hospitals in the country to use AI to improve clinical outcomes for its patients by doing so.

AI seemed like a key to solve such a complex issue for Flagler and it chose Ayasdi to deploy CVM. Considering that the CVM from Ayasdi won the 2018 Fierce Innovation Award, Flagler’s bet wasn’t a bad one. The move by Flagler is bound to be a model for other community hospitals in America to go the AI-way to help patient care and decrease the care costs.
