Columbus, OH (PRWEB) August 28, 2013
Health Data Intelligence (HDI) is pleased to announce the introduction of a brand new dashboard in its premier CarePlan Dashboard Suite: The Timely and Effective Care Dashboard. The dashboard consists of process of care categories, better known as core measures, which are required by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and reported publicly under the Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting (IQR) and Outpatient Quality Reporting (OQR) programs. The analyses cover all the years during which hospitals have been required to submit and publicly report core measure performance data to CMS. HDI’s Process of Care database, a highly structured, cloud-based repository of core measure data and outcomes that goes back all the way to 2005, is also available for querying by hospitals, health systems, and media organizations.
The CarePlan Timely and Effective Care Dashboard utilizes data from the Centers for Medicare and Medicare Services (CMS) to measure the percentage of hospital patients who receive treatments known to get the best results for certain common, serious medical conditions or surgical procedures, and how quickly hospitals treat patients who present with certain medical emergencies. These measures apply to adults and children (including Medicare patients, Medicare managed care patients, and non-Medicare patients) treated at hospitals that publicly report their outcomes.
The CarePlan Timely and Effective Care Dashboard includes the following process of care categories: Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI), Heart failure (HF), Pneumonia (PN), Surgical Care Improvement Project (SCIP), Child Asthma Care (CAC), and Hospital Outpatient (HOP). Navigation within the dashboard occurs via tabs for each category, with graphical views for each time period selected, tooltips that provide rich metadata when a user hovers over any data point, filtering capabilities down to individual hospitals or an entire health system, CMS measure codes to help uniquely identify each metric, and an About page that provides detailed metric definitions, links, and other useful information.
Available for benchmarking on the Timely and Effective Care Dashboard are state averages, the national average and the national top 10% performance scores for each process of care category as well as each hospital’s own internal targets or organizational performance goals. Hospitals, health systems, and media organizations are invited to test drive the new HDI dashboard with a free 7-day preview.
