12 Metric Selection  Meaningful  Reliable  Feasible  Understandable  Evidenced Based

13 Good Help to Those in Need. ® Outcome Metrics  Timeliness to care  Referrals to ancillary services  Retained patients  Patient satisfaction Catholic Health Initiatives, 2013

14 Good Help to Those in Need. ® Metric Recommendations  Disease site/staging at time of diagnosis  Target is to increase early stage diagnosis  Referral source  Timeliness to care  National benchmarks can be used as reference (breast, lung, colorectal, head & neck) Catholic Health Initiatives, 2013

15 Good Help to Those in Need. ® Navigator Productivity Indicators  Patient volumes  Initial, ongoing, and surveillance/survivorship  Number of barriers to care identified  Number of referral needs for barrier migration  Time spent making referrals  Patient acuity level Catholic Health Initiatives, 2013

16 Good Help to Those in Need. ® Navigator Productivity Indicators  Patient satisfaction  Retention (decrease outmigration & subsequent revenue = downstream revenue)  Navigator impact on treatment adherence (revenue capture)  Referral to services  Can demonstrate downstream revenue Catholic Health Initiatives, 2013

17 Good Help to Those in Need. ® Navigator Productivity Indicators  Provider Satisfaction  Outcome metrics  Timeliness to care  Coordination/continuity of care  Collaboration with addressing patient concerns  Quality of patient education Catholic Health Initiatives, 2013

18 Good Help to Those in Need. ® Demonstrating value  Increased volume and revenue  Increased patient & provider satisfaction  Reduced time from abnormal screening to diagnosis  Earlier stage at diagnosis  Reduced outmigration

19 Good Help to Those in Need. ® Demonstrating value  Adherence to treatment appointments/ reduced no-show rates  Resolution of patient’s barrier to care  Reduced emergency visits  Shortened hospital readmissions  Improved coordination of care

20 Good Help to Those in Need. ® Conclusion  Navigation is an unreimbursed service  Administration faced with pressure to quantify benefits of navigation  Critical to track revenues from new or returned patients who were attracted by the program’s navigation services  Vital to track navigation-specific patient satisfaction The Advisory Board Company
