Date:4/8/2011

WASHINGTON, April 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The current era of health care reform has intensified the pressure on hospitals and health systems nationwide to contain the growing cost of providing health care while improving the quality of care delivered.

Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital (New Brunswick, NJ) and Western Connecticut Health Network's Danbury Hospital (Danbury, CT) have emerged as national leaders in collaborating with physicians to succeed at meeting this dual challenge.  On April 8 in Dallas, these two institutions will receive the 2011 CRIMSON Physician Partnership Award in recognition of their improvement in clinical outcomes while documenting a combined $4.6 million in annualized savings.

The presentation will take place at the CRIMSON Annual Performance Summit at the Fairmont Dallas.  The awards, now in their second year, are presented to administrator-physician leadership teams at organizations that are members of the CRIMSON (R) physician performance technologies cohort.  CRIMSON is a division of The Advisory Board Company that helps hospitals and health systems advance quality goals and secure cost savings by eliminating inefficiencies in care delivery.

"These two members have achieved breath-taking gains in organizational performance by effectively engaging physicians – not just as clinical decision makers but also as business partners," said Paul Roscoe, CEO, CRIMSON.  "Hospital-physician collaboration that produces demonstrable value will be central to success in the coming accountable payment environment.  We applaud these hospitals for their ongoing commitment to efficient care that benefits patients and the larger community."

Danbury Hospital is being honored for its DRG (diagnosis-related group) Cost Efficiency Project, which targeted eight high-volume DRGs and showed an improvement in outcomes
