There is a great demand for accurate, useful information on healthcare quality that can inform the decisions of consumers, employers, physicians and other clinicians and policymakers. Various types of measures are used in healthcare to assess performance, improvement and other aspects of quality. This first session will provide an overview of the types of measures used in healthcare, methods for simple data collection that engages the frontline and how good display of data can communicate the story with tips for effective displays of data including dashboards.
The interpretation of data assigns a meaning to the information analyzed and determines its signification and implications. The importance of data interpretation is evident and it needs to be done properly. Is it improvement, or isn’t it? Correctly interpreting data is critical to ensure appropriate decisions are made about processes and need for changes. This second session will provide an overview of how to assess data for signals of improvement, such as trends and why run charts are essential tools for determining improvement vs. normal variation.
C-suite, nurse leaders, registered nurses, pharmacy, interdisciplinary healthcare providers, quality improvement professionals and risk managers.
