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.

Incorporating Responsible Data Principles in Institutional Data Management

The nonprofit sector produces a wealth of data that plays a fundamental role in the strategic and operational decision making and learning. Nevertheless, many organizations face major challenges with storing and integrating data produced in the field, limiting decision and learning capacity. Data warehousing and integration is an approach that could help fill this gap. However, it raises challenges in terms of responsible data management. This session will discuss the major conceptual, programmatic and technical considerations needed to implement responsible data principles and approaches, at different levels (field, region, global) and scenarios.

Please join Alvaro Cobo-Santillan, Senior Advisor MEAL/ICT at Catholic Relief Services (CRS); Jeff Lundberg, Senior Program Manager at CRS; Paul Perrin, Director and Associate Professor of the Practice at University of Notre Dame; and Gillian Kerr, President Emeritus at LogicalOutcomes Canada in a repeat of their popular session from this year’s MERL TECH DC 2017 Conference.
