Quality Improvement (QI) Dashboard
The Neurological Surgery’s Quality & Safety Dashboard enables the department to monitor three domains (1) clinical effectiveness (AHRQ quality & safety publicly reported metrics), (2) clinical efficiency (e.g., Discharge Summary Timeliness, Length of Stay, % patients discharged before noon)and (3) patient satisfaction metrics. This tool is used to help drive quality improvement and patient safety initiatives through quarterly review of performance metrics against pre-identified target and stretch goals. In addition, the Quality and Safety Dashboard allows for transparency of performance metrics amongst all neurosurgical providers, leading to greater provider accountability.
The Quality Improvement Dashboard may be accessed internally via the Departmental Quality and Patient Safety Sharepoint site.
