Using the Raw Data Example document, create an Excel bar graphs comparing 2016 infection rates (CLABSI, CAUTI, and SSI) against the national hospital benchmark values. At the bottom of the graphs, write a one-paragraph summary of the impact of meeting or not meeting the national quality benchmarks on value-based reimbursement. Copy and paste the graph in a Word document.
View the video Introduction to Quality Measurement, review the Measures, Quality Measures, and Hospital Value-Based Purchasing resources, and review the material available in the Johns Hopkins Core Measures webpage to guide your response. These resources will assist you in understanding quality measures: what they are, why the data is collected and used, and how organizational leaders use this data to influence decisions and take action.
