Crozer-Keystone Earns Healthcare Advantage Award
Crozer-Keystone Health System recently received a Thomson Reuters 2011 Healthcare Advantage Award in the category of “Strategy and Growth.” Thomson Reuters, the world’s leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals, presents awards annually to health systems that use the company’s products and services to achieve improvement in business line performance.
Crozer-Keystone’s Business Development team worked with clinical and support staff to accurately define burn and trauma patient volume so that the health system could measure market demand and trends. Then, with the help of Thomson Reuters staff, a custom set of user-defined tables was developed. The tables were used to inform physicians, burn and trauma service leaders and facility leadership about current, past and expected patient demand, and how to best organize service reach and focus across the diverse service area served by the Nathan Speare Regional Burn Treatment Center and the Crozer Regional Trauma Center.
Among those leading the project were Paul Casbergue, assistant vice president of Business Development; Walt Bisbee, administrative director of Medical Records; Deb Lillback, director of the Trauma Program; and Margaret Finocchiaro, trauma registrar.
CKHS was recognized at an awards dinner at Thomson Reuters’ annual Advantage Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah, in May. The award will also be promoted in an ad in Modern Healthcare magazine.
