Change Agent Chat and Standard Report Demo: Melissa Memorial Hospital

October 15, 2018

Melissa Memorial Hospital used a CO APCD outmigration report to understand where patients were going for care and what services they were seeking. MMH then compared the data with the Community Health Needs Assessment, and a market share study to show that Orthopedics, Chemotherapy and eye services were the major outmigration services.

What insights did the outmigration report uncover? What steps were taken to fill the gaps in care?
