Data-driven tools and processes are essential to thoughtfully combine performance and cost data. In 2016, Providence achieved incredible Meaningful Use and Physician Quality Reporting System reporting outcomes, which has brought more than $237 million in revenue from the federal government into the organization since the onset of the programs and helped to avoid tens of millions of dollars in penalties.
