Event: Building a Quality Measurement System That Works

Institute for Healthcare Improvement offers interactive seminar on evaluating key measures July 14–15.

Published: Monday, June 21, 2010 - 07:25

(IHI: Cambridge, MA) -- Having a dashboard that easily and clearly displays information about your performance measures can help your hospital know if it is progressing toward its goals.

To help you create a practical framework for developing and evaluating a dashboard of key measures, the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) is pleased to offer Building a Quality Measurement System That Works, July 14–15, in San Diego at the Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego.

This interactive, hands-on seminar will help participants to:

• Select a balanced set of measures

• Specify operational definitions

• Build data collection plans 


Conceptual and statistical approaches to understanding variation in your data will be reviewed, and you will be challenged to link your measurement efforts to your organization’s improvement strategies. With health care reform adding emphasis on measurement while rewarding benchmarking and improvement, every hospital will need to be skilled at quantifying its progress.
