UIC Partners with 314e to Assess its ICD-10 Readiness

The University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System (UI Health) provides comprehensive care, education, and research to the people of Illinois and beyond. A part of the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), UI Health comprises a clinical enterprise that includes a 495-bed tertiary care hospital, 22 outpatient clinics, and 13 Mile Square Health Center facilities, which are Federally Qualified Health Centers. It also includes the seven UIC health science colleges: the College of Applied Health Sciences; the College of Dentistry; the School of Public Health; the Jane Addams College of Social Work; and the Colleges of Medicine, Pharmacy, and Nursing, including regional campuses in Peoria, Quad Cities, Rockford, Springfield, and Urbana. UI Health is dedicated to the pursuit of health equity.


In July 2015, UI Health partnered with 314e to support their ICD-10 Go-Live. The engagement was to provide an ICD-10 readiness assessment along with developing an executive dashboard of key performance indicators (KPIs) to monitor overall impact to the organization. The dashboard provided the team insight into both financial and operational actionable data. This allowed the executive team to make quick decisions and see where there may be a potential issue compared to baseline data.

Overall, the KPIs returned to baseline within a few months.  The leadership team has since incorporated the dashboard into their operational processes.
