ATLANTA, GA. – August 9, 2007 – Eagle Hospital Physicians, a leading national Hospitalist company, is pleased to announce a strategic alliance with Statit Software, Inc., the premier provider of statistical process control technology for continuous quality improvement (CQI). Through the use of Statit technology, Eagle will be able to enhance its focus on CQI by analyzing, tracking and comparing clinical, operational, financial, and key quality performance indicators over a specified period of time.

Expected results from use of Statit technology include:

• Accessing and displaying real-time information received from Hospital partners as well as from Eagle’s databases, spreadsheets and ancillary information systems;
• Providing accessible information in relevant formats for physician action plans;
• Safeguarding data behind secure firewalls, ensuring confidentiality yet enabling accessibility to authorized users;
• Rolling information up for enterprise view; and,
• Creating a personalized view of a scorecard and subscription of automated notification to meet individual and organizational goals.

Statit piMD will enable Eagle users to have a cross-functional snapshot of organizational key performance indicators, and effectively apply that information to maintain or improve quality levels, as well as improve efficiencies and results. “We are excited about moving from a manually intensive scorecard/dashboard system to a more efficient technology-driven method of quality improvement to benefit our Hospital clients,” says Betty Abbott, Chief Operating Officer, Eagle Hospital Physicians.
