Care Transformation Definition: Reaching a Higher Standard of Care

Text Description is below the image.
Care Transformation is a comprehensive approach to:

  • Improve quality and safety of care, the patient care experience and improve financial stewardship.
  • Achieve zero defects by embedding evidence throughout the care process
  • Support acceleration of change and rapid replication
  • Maximize value from Genesis technology

Trinity Health's brand name for Care Transformation is Genesis CareExperience (Genesis CareEx on second reference.)

Key attributes of Genesis CareEx are:

  • Patient focused—studies the end-to-end patient experience.
  • Disease specific—e.g. heart failure, acute coronary syndrome, diabetes
  • Information and evidence drive—versus consensus opinion driven
  • Holistic—examines all elements of cost and quality
  • Measurable—produces quantifiable benefits
  • Iterative—we never stop looking for new opportunities
