Leakage Analysis

In some cases, patient leakage is expected due to strategic decisions to limit services in a system. Clinic A wanted to know:

Are we experiencing leakage for other reasons and, if so, how much and why?

Using WHIO data to review services offered, service locations, ACO partnerships and other factors, Clinic A saw where leakage was occurring, how it could be avoided and care coordination improved.

"WHIO's leakage report is phenomenal, addressing an area of burning need in the system's strategic decision-making."
