Using Hospital Data Insights to Improve Clinical Quality at UC San Diego Health and C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital
For the past 29 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 Chad VanDenBerg, MPH, Chief Quality and Patient Safety Officer, UC San Diego Health, and Dr. Chris Dickinson, Pediatric Associate Chief Medical Officer and Interim Executive Director, C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital. VanDenBerg and Dickinson 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.
