This paper seeks to answer with a number of questions: What drives clinical, operational and financial variation in care at a particular hospital? Is variation due to what care is ordered, how the care is delivered, or preventable complications? How can hospitals reduce clinical variation? The answers come from the discipline we call Care Continuum Optimization (CCO).
