2022 Stronger - P106 - Quality Reporting and Management: Closing the Reporting Gap - On Demand
Core measure data is expensive to collect and often difficult to report, analyze and use to drive improvement. To better understand how sepsis bundle compliance affects patient mortality, readmissions and length of stay and to implement meaningful process improvements, we created interactive dashboards that tie together quality and patient-level data. These dashboards allow all core measure results to be reported monthly and easily aggregated/disaggregated to identify trends. By linking patient demographics to core measures, we can also look for potential health care disparities by language or ethnicity.
