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.

Dental Dashboard

from the National Network for Oral Health Access (NNOHA)

NNOHA partnered with Delta Dental of Colorado Foundation, Washington Dental Service Foundation, and AFL Enterprises, LLC to create a Dental Dashboard and User’s Guide. These tools are for individual Community Health Centers to use as a part of their quality improvement efforts, to more effectively monitor and measure quality, and drive performance within their dental programs. Nine health center dental programs have tested the dashboard and were involved in developing the User’s guide.

NNOHA also has a case study from a health center using the dashboard.
