The Vision

The hospital of the future requires data-driven decision making, an unfulfilled promise of the digital age. The now decades-long effort to collect information about operations and clinical practice, on a system and patient level, has left hospitals around the world, and importantly the talented staff at those hospitals, with robust information that holds keys to better performance: improved outcomes and lower costs, a win-win for the system and its key stakeholders, including staff and patients. 

Hospitals are severely challenged, however, leveraging data in this way as data projects require months of effort with many dedicated resources and several bottlenecks along the way that too often discourage more activity.

"What we first saw at Sheba and now at more health systems is the story of what happens when high-performing technology meets high-performing teams. The explosion of activity in the ADAMS Center within such a short amount of time excites me as the CEO of MDClone, but mostly excites me as a person who at some point, like everyone in the world, receives care. Hearing physicians talk about the way they have already changed the way they care for patients, and the dozens and dozens of more ideas that are already in the works, is why we're here."

"What our new ADAMS Center has demonstrated is the way a technology can profoundly change an organization’s culture. The ability for any health system to achieve excellence is rooted in what we’re seeing today."

Increasing Volume and Value

The ADAMS Center aims to align the health system leadership and the front-line workforce towards the goal of increased volume of insight generation and the value those insights can deliver for hospital operations and ultimately patient health. With the theme of “increasing volume and value,” the ADAMS Center encourages staff to ask questions by ensuring those questions will turn into actions that impact day-to-day activities throughout the hospital.

 

What manifests as a process within the operations of the hospital, whether the way a surgery is conducted, a medication is administered, or a patient is transported between units, at some point almost universally begins with a question. Yet each process is ripe for opportunity to improve, and the hospital of the future is a learning health system, continuously improving through evidence-based practice. 

 

Generating such evidence is a primary task of the ADAMS Center and must become a primary goal of the health system. Supporting the goal requires several commitments, primarily including personnel and technology. The personnel and technology of the ADAMS Center are multi-faceted, meant to engage the broader health system staff and demonstrate efficacy to stakeholders. Primarily, this revolves around two aspects:

 

  • Rapid cycles moving between questions, corresponding curated data, and actionable insights which become embedded and evaluated as part of care delivery

  • Sharing insights both within the health system and potentially outside of it

 

Fulfilling these requires several steps, including collecting relevant data, organizing them for efficient analysis, making them accessible to clinical staff, aligning practice changes, and transparently disseminating progress to appropriate teams at all levels of the health system. This is the backbone of ADAMS - Ask, Discover, Act, Measure, Share - and is embedded within the framework of the ADAMS Center both as an operation and as a required technology platform for its success.
