The first time Kaiser Permanente Northwest launched an analytic tool to predict hospital readmission risk, the initiative flopped. The integrated health system wanted a tool that would identify high-risk patients before they were discharged so clinicians could arrange needed follow-up care to prevent complications.
The El Camino Hospital Board voted unanimously Wednesday night to buy nearly 16 acres of land in South San Jose, with the goal of building a third hospital facility.
Expansion into San Jose is an important step in handling a growing demand for the hospital’s services, King told the board. Population growth estimates show San Jose’s population is expected to explode over the next thirty years, increasing by 41 percent by 2040, and many patients who come to El Camino Hospital already travel long distances from the southern region of the county.
