13  MCDC entered into a partnership with Press Ganey in  This collaborative relationship has ultimately improved the MCDC patient experience by creating continuous, sustainable improvement.

14  Patients are selected through a randomized process.  PG operators contact our patients by phone to complete survey.  Survey Questions have been modified for our organization and unique patient population.  In 2014: 5 surveys completed per clinic each month  Their sophisticated analytics help MCDC discover and prioritize key performance improvement efforts with real time Survey data.

15  Each Quarter in 2014: ◦ new priority indexes will be calculated – providing each clinic their best opportunities for improvement  Top 3 OFI – Action Plans ◦ Clinic receives each quarter via ◦ Action plans developed at the clinic level

16 NEW Add Clinic Specific Info REVISED

17  2014 Press Ganey Score Board – Team Approach  Goals and achievements are reviewed at daily huddles and staff meetings

18  Quality Assurance begins with a set of standards and accountability to one another.  Clinical and Administrative Policies & Procedures for the Dental Office were written in an effort to establish the MCDC community standard of oral health care delivery for our providers.  A Provider Evaluation (OPPE) will be conducted on each provider annually. The QI Department will be responsible for completing and communicating findings with providers, administration, and board of directors.

19  Provider Evaluation process begins in June.  Approximately 6-10 charts will be randomly selected for review within 30 days of provider’s scheduled evaluation.  QI department is responsible for reviewing charts and completing assessments together

21  Was a Dental Diagnosis documented or completed prior to rendering treatment?  Was the treatment reviewed with the patient prior to initiating and was an appropriate consent obtained?  Were radiographs taken per MCDC guidelines?  Was the procedure properly documented in the patient’s clinical note?  Was the next appointment needs documented and scheduled with the patient?

22  Is the treatment plan consistent with the patient’s desire, in relation to their exam, diagnosis, and prognosis?  If anesthetic was required, was the type and dosage used appropriate?  Did the radiograph’s quality meet the MCDC community standard of care?

23  Restorative  Endodontic  Oral Surgery  Prosthodontics

24  Attendance at Spring Doctor Meeting  Does provider actively participate with Doctor’s Corner?  Does Provider engage with MCDC administration via communications?  Does Provider participate in any MCDC adjunct committees?

25  If a specific concern is identified, a focused evaluation may be warranted.  A new hire will be clinically evaluated within 90 days of their employment.  An FPPE may also be completed on a case by case basis and initiated by the DQIPS.
