2 Bottom Line It for Me Public Reporting Drives Improvement If It Is: Scientifically sound Actionable Fair Important

3 Actions From Data Boards examine –Link leaders compensation to performance Leadership team –Examines data routinely –Share with clinical staff –Lead efforts to improve Collaboratives bring together providers trying to address challenges

4 Scientifically Sound Measure looks at: –Reasonably expected outcomes –Processes shown to be directly linked to better outcomes Reliable data collection Relevant numerators and denominators

5 Soundness Example Vascular Catheter Associated Infections Outcome measure, evidence of preventability Data collection good for NHSN, less than sound for HAC HAC Rate –Numerator = patients with vascular catheter associated infections –Denominator = Medicare patients –Highest = Villa Veliciana (1 of 33 patients) –Among highest, academic medical centers

6 Actionable Proven strategies exist that will enable change in performance Change is within the influence of the organization Regulations dont stand in the way

7 Fairness in Measurement Adjust for differences in patients as they present to the hospital –Risk adjustment –Exclusions Adjust for other factors? –Patient preference –Genetic information??? How might this change as we move to measures across the continuum of care?
