“I must confess that I chose to go to medical school because I had a little bit of a hero complex that drove me into the field…the self-delusional nature of this dream quickly faded during my third year of medical school…”

UHIN CMIO, Dr. Matt Hoffman, wrote the cover story for the most recent issue of Population Health magazine. Read it here.

Leadership Update

It was recently announced that Teresa Rivera has stepped down from her role as Chief Executive Officer. The UHIN Board of Directors has appointed Brian Chin, formerly UHIN’s Chief Financial Officer, as Interim CEO until a replacement chief executive is appointed.  Read more…

Case Study

Without knowing if and when their patients were admitted, transferred, or discharged from a hospital or emergency department (ED), and without reliable admissions data, Granger’s team found itself missing pieces necessary to manage their patients’ care.​ Read more…

LACE Scores

Need to know which patients to prioritize for care coordination and interventions? The new LACE score enhancement assigns a readmission risk score to your CHIE Alerts list, allowing your Care Coordination team to quickly and accurately identify low-, medium- and high-risk patients.

The calculation of the LACE Score is based on vital information necessary to prioritize patient outreach, including the length of stay in a hospital, acuity of the admission, any comorbidities, and the number of emergency department visits.

LACE Scores provided in CHIE Alerts utilized “problem lists” and ED visits from the entire community rather than a single hospital system, offering potentially greater accuracy. To get started with LACE scores in your CHIE Alerts, contact the CHIE Team at chie@uhin.org.
