Preparation For This Assessment, You May Choose One Of The Following Three Options For A Performance Dashboard To Use As The Basis For Your Benchmark Evaluation. Option 1: Dashboard And Health Care Benchmark Evaluation Simulation If You Decide To Use One

Preparation
For this assessment, you may choose one of the following three options for a performance dashboard to use as the basis for your benchmark evaluation.

Option 1: Dashboard and Health Care Benchmark Evaluation Simulation
If you decide to use one of the simulation dashboards for your evaluation, review both dashboards, as well as the relevant local, state, and federal laws and policies linked in each dashboard. Choose one of the dashboards and consider the metrics within it that are falling short of the prescribed benchmarks.

Preparation

For this assessment, you may choose one of the following three options for a performance dashboard to use as the basis for your benchmark evaluation.

Option 1: Dashboard and Health Care Benchmark Evaluation Simulation

If you decide to use one of the simulation dashboards for your evaluation, review both dashboards, as well as the relevant local, state, and federal laws and policies linked in each dashboard. Choose one of the dashboards and consider the metrics within it that are falling short of the prescribed benchmarks.

Review the performance dashboard for a health care organization, as well as relevant local, state, and federal laws and policies. Then, write a report for senior leaders in the organization that communicates your analysis and evaluation of the current state of organizational performance, including a recommended metric to target for improvement.

Note: Each assessment in this course builds on the work you completed in the previous assessment. Therefore, you must complete the assessments in this course in the order in which they are presented.

In the era of health care reform, many of the laws and policies set by government at the local, state, and federal levels have specific performance benchmarks related to care delivery outcomes that organizations must achieve. It is critical for organizational success that the interprofessional care team is able to understand reports and dashboards that display the metrics related to performance and compliance benchmarks. This assessment offers an opportunity for you to demonstrate and sharpen your ability to analyze, interpret, and evaluate performance dashboard metrics.

· Competency 6: Apply various methods of communicating with policy makers, stakeholders, colleagues, and patients to ensure that communication in a given situation is professional, clear, efficient, and effective.

. Communicate evaluation and analysis in a professional and effective manner, writing content clearly and logically, with correct use of grammar, punctuation, and spelling.

. Integrate relevant sources to support arguments, correctly formatting citations and references using current APA style.

Competency Map

Be sure to cite relevant local, state, or federal health care laws or policies when evaluating metric performance against prescribed benchmarks.

· Cultural diversity in the organization.

· Cultural diversity in the community.

· Organizational processes and procedures.

· How might these challenges be contributing to benchmark underperformance?

· Evaluate a benchmark underperformance in the organization or interprofessional team that has the potential for greatly improving overall quality or performance.

Dashboard and Health Care Benchmark Evaluation

· Introduction

· Conclusion

Introduction

Dashboards and other reports can provide crucial information about how well an organization is meeting benchmarks set by local, state, and federal laws and policies. Healthcare organizations need to be able to use this information to determine the most effective strategies for quality and performance improvement. This activity asks you to review various dashboards and reports used by Mercy Medical Center, a Vila Health affiliated hospital, and determine where the organization is falling short.

Evelyn Unger

Senior Human Resources Generalist

Hey there. This is Evelyn Unger; sorry I missed you. I just wanted give you a little more context for the report you’ve been asked to pull together on our dashboard metrics. The main thing is that we’re trying to get a better understanding of how to evaluate the information these dashboards are providing. The goal is to be able to use the data as actionable information.

So – if you could review the materials I’ve provided to you and use one of the two dashboards as the source of the data, that would be great. You’ll need to do some external research probably in order to determine external benchmarks and standards. Oh … and remember that while there may be a couple of underperforming areas, your recommendations should be based on the actions that will deliver the best improvement to overall quality or performance.

Let me know if you have any questions.
