Date:5/5/2009

ANN ARBOR, Mich., May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Baptist Health South Florida has selected CareDiscovery(TM) Advance from Thomson Reuters to be a key component of its continuing effort to improve clinical quality and efficiency.

Baptist Health will use CareDiscovery Advance, a clinical performance benchmarking solution, to evaluate its clinical outcomes, quality and resource utilization. Built on the strength of healthcare brands Solucient and Medstat, CareDiscovery provides national norms as well as top performer benchmarks that employ the same methodologies as Thomson Reuters 100 Top Hospital(R) studies.

CareDiscovery delivers timely data that are risk- and severity-adjusted as well as detailed analyses of clinical processes -- such as practice patterns in the laboratory, radiology, and pharmacy. CareDiscovery also profiles physician performance to identify variations in practices.

CareDiscovery Advance drills down to transaction-level detail to identify opportunities to improve quality, patient safety, mortality, cost and length-of-stay variations.

"Thomson Reuters is honored to be working with Baptist Health South Florida, which can now find the root cause of clinical problems, develop improvement strategies based on best practices, and monitor and quantify the impact of its improvement strategy," said Terry Cameron, executive vice president of the Healthcare business of Thomson Reuters.
