At PBHS we provide the road map for those seeking current best practices in healthcare.  Much of today's dialogue on health-care reform centers on how to pay for the cost of health care in the future, or how to minimize access to healthcare resources. PBHS offers the better half of the equation: innovation to reduce costs by improving the quality and delivery of the care itself.  We show how to make healthcare more affordable—by making it less costly and of better quality

THE MEthod Works

Since pioneering Substantive Outcomes as a framework in 2005, PBHS has helped organizations discover and use clinical methodologies in ways that are practical, productive, measurable, and aligned.

To shorten the learning curve and speed financial return on investment, we have developed implementation methodologies and best practices based on the 97 integration research initiatives we've conducted, and refined by extended monitoring  of actual outcomes from over 288 healthcare facilities, systems, and organizations. 

 
“When healthcare providers make more money by providing more care, supply creates its own demand.”                                                          —Rob Turner, Hospital CEO
 
 

Sustained business success in our rapidly evolving healthcare market will depend as much on aligning our organizations and systemswith clinical practice as on the clinical practice itself.  Current operators, with no actionable clinical model, have no chance of accomplishing this alignment.  

The data clearly shows that transitioning patients through acute and post-acute entities—housing them, feeding them, giving them medications, exercising them, and walking them—all without achieving certain definable success metrics does nothing but perhaps delay readmission.

What We Do

We at PBHS provide the administrative and clinical support to the people and processes involved in turning this refined clinical vision into reality. It’s a step-by-step methodology that ensures a smooth, results-focused transition. Our approach puts vision into practice with minimal disruption while achieving the most effective, productive, and profitable clinical outcome possible. 

We ensure that at each step of the care continuum the outputs necessary for patient success are identified and agreed on.  Then we make certain that the factors that contribute to these outcomes are understood and acted on. These methodologies, once learned, are self-reinforcing, facilitating their long-term incorporation into the culture of an organization.  And the results are provable, providing both internal positive reinforcement and a marketplace advantage.

Get Involved

Each part of the healthcare continuum must identify and agree upon the necessary outputs to be achieved for a patient and then facilitate achieving the critical outputs relevant to that part of the continuum.  Find out how you can join that effort and put our expertise to work for you.
