Healthcare Efficiency: New Jersey's Progress Toward High-Value Care

MARCH 2019 | Summary: The last decade has seen a flurry of hospital merger and acquisition activity at an unprecedented rate in New Jersey. Mergers have the opportunity to improve operational, clinical and financial value. Blending economies of scale with best practices across system facilities and aligning strategic philosophies can lead to efficient care delivery and improved quality of care. NJHA’s Center for Health Analytics, Research & Transformation (CHART) analyzed New Jersey hospital data from 2006 and 2016 to measure the magnitude of improvement in the efficiency of care delivery achieved. The results were overwhelmingly positive both within the state and when comparing the cost of hospital care in New Jersey to the rest of the country.
