SDLC Partners Introduces Total Health Transparency, a Framework to Enhance Clinical Operations

SDLC Partners, a leading provider of healthcare business and technology solutions, has added to its healthcare offerings by introducing Total Health Transparency (THT) a new framework to improve clinical operations.

The model was built around SDLC’s Total Health Management framework and other leading practices such as Carnegie Mellon University’s Capability Maturity Model and Harvard’s Balanced Scorecard. THT is a framework and set of actionable tools that discover and link key operational and performance measures that advance efficiency and quality in clinical operations. It identifies and manages variation at critical process parameter and attribute layers. By managing the process at the lowest possible variable level, healthcare organizations can reveal untapped efficiencies that can generate sustained quality of patient/member satisfaction and administrative cost value.

“Today, healthcare leaders are required to effectively manage volatility and variation in an ever-changing environment, and current approaches make that both challenging and costly,” says Greg Steffine, SDLC’s Business Intelligence Practice Director. “In as little as 3 months, our THT framework provides healthcare organizations with the transparency they need around key metrics in clinical operations in order to control costs and drive efficiency.” .
