Overview

Data monitoring, from the highest level down to the patient level is critical to identifying trends, gaining insights, and communicating transparently with staff and stakeholders. Data monitoring approaches such as dashboarding are used to display data in a simple and intuitive way, allowing a snapshot of performance on selected measures to see changes or areas for improvement. Business intelligence systems such as population health management analytics allows for the monitoring of the health of a whole patient population, stratified by various characteristics, thereby supporting care planning, resource allocation, and training opportunities. Resources in this section include tools to begin dashboarding, considerations for taking the next step with population health management and guidance on how to navigate the many factors of any data monitoring approach.

How Healthcare Visualizations Can Improve Organizational Buy-In

from Health Catalyst

Data visualizations in many forms can be incredibly valuable in helping health center staff and leadership move from a passive understanding of the data to active support of health IT enabled, data driven quality improvement approaches. While introducing visualizations can create immediate value and understanding, ensuring that their full value is realized requires that stakeholders be fully engaged and understand how visualizations (such as dashboards) can support decision making.

Health Catalyst has an excellent piece about How Healthcare Visualizations Can Improve Organizational Buy-In in which they propose a three part framework: 

  • Teach: Use Group Settings to Build the Foundation for Engaged, Cross-functional Healthcare Teams
  • Show: Share Healthcare Visualizations with Clinicians and Healthcare Administrators and Have Them Share Processes
  • Involve: Answer the Team’s Questions
