Using Hospital Data Insights to Improve Clinical Quality at UCLA Medical Center and Duke Children’s Hospital and Medical Center
For the past 30 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 UCLA Health and Duke Health. Meng Wei, BSN, MBA, System Director, Quality Informatics and Analytics and Amy Wang, MS Principal Data Analyst, Quality Informatics and Analytics, UCLA Health, as well as Jillian Hauser, Director, Performance Services, and Colleen McCarthy, Management Engineer, Performance Services, Duke Health 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.
