2022 Stronger - P128 - Improving Mortality Rates: Cultivating Connections To Understand Key Drivers - On Demand
Understanding the drivers that influence inpatient mortality performance and delivering meaningful information can be challenging.

Further collaboration with an analytics team led to the development of a dashboard that displays clinical data alongside these case reviews, allowing senior leadership and frontline providers to better understand key drivers of mortality performance. Learn how UCSF leveraged a multidisciplinary team to cultivate connections, ultimately improving mortality-related metrics.
