Texas primary care group uses IBM software to cut hospital readmissions
Southeast Texas Medical Associates (SETMA), a primary care group based in Beaumont, Texas, is using IBM business analytics software to gain greater insight into hospital readmissions. The software helps the 29-doctor group identify the causes of readmissions and design interventions to prevent patients from being readmitted. In the first six months of this project, SETMA has been able to cut the number of its readmissions by 22 percent.
