For more than 30 years Dr. Marshall Steele has been a practicing orthopedic surgeon. His story begins back in 1995 after a long time and loyal patient had such a poor experience at the hospital. She refused to return and complete her knee surgery.

Audio:
I heard this complaint before but this one really struck me. My relationship with my patients was being impacted by their poor experience. We didn’t have a dedicated unit and staff, teamwork was lacking, we didn’t even ask the patients how to improve. It was then that I embarked on a crusade to improve the delivery system to one that patients would adore.

Audio:
As a result of his experience, Dr. Steele launched a system of care where quality would be improved and costs could be lowered. He led a culture change that transformed a group of medical experts into a professional team with a mantra to think like a patient, reduce waste and measure results. Dr. Steele’s program became so successful that over 250 hospitals visited him to learn about a method of delivering health care that put the patient first.

Audio:
Quality is critical to our success, however, most hospitals and surgeons only measure quality by the lack of complications that occur in the hospital. In fact, less than two percent of orthopedic surgeons actually measure and aggregate the results of their procedures. We, as a health care system, must change the way we define and measure quality.

Audio:
Marshall Steele is a health care advisory firm focused on partnering with hospitals and surgeons to deliver patient centric care, reduce waste and inefficiencies and lower costs through what are known as destination centers of superior performance. At each destination center physicians collaborate with administration and staff to develop new and innovative systems of care: benchmarking, hospital reported data and patient feedback against other centers. The program strongly promotes culture change with technics borrowed from industries outside of health care that practice a lean enterprise approach.

Audio:
Destination Centers ensure that patients and families have an extraordinary experience. In hospitals like ours that have these programs in place we have physicians who lead the professional team, much like a quarterback would do for a football team, instead of acting as individual practitioners interested in their own personal goals.

Audio:
One of the most critical components of the program is the involvement of family members in the care process.

Audio:
With the program, family members actually become coaches. In my case, when I had my knee replaced my wife became the coach. She helped me with the overall process of walking, exercising and total recovery.

Audio:
What’s most essential to the program is the practice of sharing and collecting data on medical care outcomes.

Audio:
Marshall Steele provides the tools to collect, trend and benchmark both hospital and patient reported data. Patient data to evaluate the success of the operation is collected in the physician’s office on an iPad before and after surgery. Hospital data on the clinical operational financial performance is placed on a dashboard and benchmarked against best practice from our national registry.

Audio:
With hospital reported data physicians are able to measure statistics on complications, the length of patient stays, what the costs were and then compare it to the hospitals around the country.

We collect our data, we evaluate it and the whole goal is to maximize the patient’s outcomes and to decrease potential complication rates.

Dr. Steele believes that in order to do so, hospitals must turn their attention to creating more efficiently run, high quality programs such as destination centers of superior performance.

Audio:
The concept of a destination center is to maximize the patient’s experience, to do it cost effectively and ultimately, most importantly, is to decrease complication rates. This can be extremely beneficial obviously to the patients and to the overall health care system.
