Case Study: Mountain Medical Physician Specialists Improves Productivity


Mountain Medical Physician Specialists (MMPS), a 21-physician Radiology practice in Utah, partners with four hospitals to provide inpatient services and manage imaging centers throughout the greater Salt Lake City region. The practice provides a wide range of imaging services including MRI, CT, mammography, ultrasound, X-ray, interventional radiology, nuclear medicine services and other radiology services.

The Question

How can we measurably improve physician productivity?

The Solution

Quinsite’s Comprehensive Healthcare Analytics Platform integrates valuable data from numerous operational systems to generate a holistic view of the entire practice. Quinsite’s suite of dynamic solutions and healthcare data analytics services help drive measurable change across all functions.

Real Results: Capturing Data, Reconciling Revenue

To support their RVU based physician compensation and productivity model, MMPS CEO Julie Penrod needed enhanced visibility into physician productivity. Quinsite's Physician Productivity reports offered the ability to track and "slice and dice" productivity data by provider, shift, subspecialty, modality, workday, etc. Adding the Productivity Ring mobile app allowed MMPS physicians to track, monitor, and compare their own performance to practice expectations in real-time throughout their shift, empowering them to adjust processes and workflows as appropriate.

In less than six months MMPS realized a 15% increase in average daily RVU's per physician, spreading daily workloads more equitably across all providers. This helped expand their existing capacity and eliminated the urgent need for hiring another FTE (approximately $500,000), even in the face of increased volumes.
