Dr. Bellian stated: “Hospitals are looking for ways to make money, save money and improve outcomes. I have been impressed with how Life2 helps hospitals achieve these objectives with its transformative technology. At its core, the platform helps the hospital care team select actions that mitigate risks facing each individual patient every day. These actions can be process or procedure oriented as well as clinical actions. My focus will be to help the Life2 development team shape the clinical actions selection process. The result will be a robust repository that helps hospitals increase revenues and reduce costs on a daily, patient-by-patient basis. The end result is a consistent and sustainable reduction in Length of Stay and avoidable days while improving quality of care and outcomes.”

Life2’s Length of Stay Optimization Suite delivers new information hospitals do not have. It provides a prospective look into the future, a Daily Cycle of new insights: patient based stratification, causality, and selection of actionable interventions. The system uses an automated feedback loop for identifying which actions work and which ones do not. The platform provides these insights by enhancing existing management systems via the hospital’s normal workflow. These valuable insights unquestionably impact results.

Hospital executives have told us they are challenged to increase revenue and reduce expenses while improving outcomes. That pressure will only increase in the future.
