Case Study: Using Hospital Data Insights to Improve Clinical Quality at The University of Kansas Hospital and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center
For the past 27 years, U.S. News & World Report has published the annual Best Hospitals rankings. In December 2014, U.S. News introduced the Hospital Data Insights platform in an effort to better understand the data points behind these scores. The HDI analytics suite allows hospital executives to perform much deeper analyses of the more than 12 million metrics underpinning the Best Hospitals and Best Children’s Hospitals rankings.
The Hospital Data Insights team will provide a brief overview of the tools, followed by presentations from Terry Rusconi, Vice President of Performance Improvement at The University of Kansas Hospital, and Jim Papp, Director of External Reporting and Transparency at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center. Rusconi and Papp will share examples of how their respective facilities use Hospital Data Insights to analyze quality and safety measures in order to make data-driven decisions to drive clinical care improvements at their hospitals.
