LIFE IS GOOD

Recently, Agnesian HealthCare was acquired by SSM Health, a Catholic, not-for-profit health care system with 11,000 providers and nearly 39,000 employees in four states, including Wisconsin, Oklahoma, Illinois, and Missouri. With additional resources, opportunities were available to further
fulfill their mission and vision.

BIG CHALLENGE

But, monthly meetings with leaders and executives regularly focused 90% of time reviewing updates and only 10% taking corrective action. This created lengthy and unproductive meetings, and often more questions than answers. There had to be a more efficient solution to execute across the system.


HELP ARRIVES

So, they turned to AchieveIt. They automatically collect updates and generate monthly automated reports that are sent to the leaders and executives ahead of their meeting. With earlier updates, leaders and executives can keep everything top of mind and better prepare for the meeting. Meetings quickly shifted to a 90% focus on action and only 10% reviewing updates.

LIFE IS EVEN BETTER

With less time collecting updates, Agnesian now focuses their time on accomplishing their initiatives. Plus, more productive meetings led to increased engagement and participation across facilities. It worked so well at the ministry level, that similar reports are now utilized across the system and organizational plans.
