We’re proud of the work we’ve done to save lives and improve healthcare organizations.

We’ve achieved far-reaching results over many years of all-scale experience, working with healthcare organizations ranging from hospitals to health systems, pediatrics to long-term care providers, and acute care to skilled nursing facilities. Our steady focus on driving harm reduction across multiple clinical areas has resulted in significant improvements, including:

As Cynosure Health commemorates its twentieth anniversary, we celebrate our accomplishments in several key areas:

Driving High Impact Change in Clinical Improvement
  • Our work has resulted in over 100,000 lives saved, over 3 million fewer patient harms or avoidable readmissions, and over $20 billion in costs savings.
  • For example, our work has led to significant reduced harms across multiple clinical areas, such as 76% reduction in CAUTI, 37% reduction in sepsis mortality, 14.5% reduction in surgical complications, 13% reduction in avoidable readmissions, and 22% reduction in ICU length of stay.
⦁ Advancing the Field in Data and Measurement
