We work with process improvement leaders who are passionate about making healthcare run more efficiently, effectively, and with less patient harm. Before partnering with leaders of Blue Agilis, one organization tackled over 1000 problems through rapid improvement events (REI) within 3 years. However, upon further investigation, it was discovered that only 2% of those REIs made sustainable improvements after 6 months. Processes were optimized but there was no reduction in harm.

At Blue Agilis, we are committed to solving the problem and sustaining improvements. Through our agile sprint structure, change leaders experiment with a range of solutions and continuously iterate to make sure improvements are sustained. Our platform focuses your team on high value opportunities by providing a data sensor feedback loop that indicates not only when you are doing well but is also designed to allow you to shut down failed results quickly.

According to the CDC, on any given day 1 of 31 patients get at least one healthcare-associated infection (HAI).

For a partnering organization, even though traditional improvement practices were deployed, they were still challenged by the rise in central line infections. Unique patient environments outside of the standard models for infection prevention created scenarios that created unintended consequences even though compliance was high.

After working with the leaders of Blue Agilis to approach the problem through the Agile framework, the standard of care was adjusted to reflect the patient population and care team composition. They saw a >70% reduction in HAIs and 20% decrease in inpatient mortality.

“Planning without me is plotting” has become synonymous with healthcare improvement projects.

Here at Blue Agilis, we recognize that your clinician teams are made up of humans, not machines. By providing insights into what motivates each team member, we involve clinicians from the beginning and design solutions that fit the unique profiles of your team.

In one example, care teams were encouraged to provide peer accountability and encouraged peer-to-peer feedback. By taking the time to understand these clinician’s motivational factors, this organization increased hand hygiene from 60% to >95% and has been able to sustain high compliance over the past 3 years.

We believe that successful implementation requires an understanding of the unique characteristics of your organization and complementing the great work that you are already doing with an approach that is personalized and localized to you.

In one example, successes were rapidly scaled through 2,000 physician practices. This scaling was achieved by first capturing a collection of success stories, highlighting the key minimum specs of what made those solutions work, and then helping teams with similar problems adjust the solutions to make them feasible to implement in their unique environments.

This agile approach resulted in approximately $1B in cost saving for CMS over 4 years with sustained results since the initiation of the project in 2015.

As outpatient providers are forced to take on risk and enter into alternative payment environments, many physicians are struggling to transform their practice and reduce unnecessary utilization to stay afloat. 

For a five-state coalition network in the Midwest, we enabled practice transformation leaders to reduce unnecessary utilization by 30%. Via agile sprints, leaders experimented with a variety of solutions, from expanded hours to services to nurse call lines to virtual care coordination. Proven successful solutions were then localized and implemented according to the unique needs of each individual practice.
