There were 25,894 patients discharged during the fiscal year. The fiscal year was challenging in order to meet the standards that Congress passed with the All Payors Bill. In 1983, the Hospital joined the VHA and through that partnership was able to meet the new standards congress passed. Over the past three years, Yale implemented the Value Improvement Plan (VIP), the VIP’s goal is to reduce costs and improve quality. The use of VIP also helped the Hospital maintain the goal of keeping costs low while providing quality care to patients.
