Beyond Healthcare Dashboards: Deeper Decision Support

  2. 2. © 2016 Health Catalyst Proprietary. Feel free to share but we would appreciate a Health Catalyst citation. Beyond Healthcare Dashboards Dashboards and measures have become commonplace in hospitals for tracking performance. Healthcare dashboards are indispensable, particularly in outcomes improvement work. Dashboards give organizations a clear picture of how they’re performing in all metrics, so they know which areas to target for improvement. These visual reporting systems establish a single source of truth to allow relevant users, top to bottom, to view the same data.

Beyond Healthcare Dashboards Today, however, healthcare dashboards are starting to fail the systems they were built to serve. As data-driven decision making grows the healthcare industry is outgrowing dashboards. Health system needs for faster, real- time reporting and customized, self- service functionality are driving the development of new solutions. Novel executive decision support systems, such as Health Catalyst®’s Leading Wisely™, are taking over where dashboards fall short.

Beyond Healthcare Dashboards The Traditional Functions of a Healthcare Dashboard The key visual element of a dashboard layout is information that’s easy to understand. It shows a variety of data: Health system trends. How the system is doing over a period. Where the system stands in relation to overall system targets. Specific measures the system agrees to share in a dashboard. > > > >

Beyond Healthcare Dashboards Why Healthcare Today Needs More than Dashboards and Static Reports Initially, the healthcare industry touted dashboards for their ability to provide insights (actionable information), not just data that users still need to interpret. As health systems’ capacity to manage data grows, however, organizations need more efficient and agile tools to leverage the wealth of information.

Beyond Healthcare Dashboards Why Healthcare Today Needs More than Dashboards and Static Reports In today’s healthcare environment, traditional dashboards can hinder the performance they’re designed to boost, because: • Dashboards are time consuming • Dashboard data can have too much variation • Dashboards are not self-service
  7. 7. © 2016 Health Catalyst Proprietary. Feel free to share but we would appreciate a Health Catalyst citation. Beyond Healthcare Dashboards Dashboards are time consuming In most third-party dashboards, someone in IT needs to map data from the data source (e.g., the EHR) to the dashboard. This requires an additional step and additional support from various full-time equivalent contributors along the way, and adds time and variability to the request.

Beyond Healthcare Dashboards Dashboard data can have too much variation Dashboards can present different and conflicting data from reports, leading time, or numbers on separate reports for the same measure. Dashboards may lack the standardization needed for swift interventions.

Beyond Healthcare Dashboards Dashboards are not self-service The person who builds the dashboard, usually IT, may create it specifically for one group or individual. Another user or group may be unable to customize it to their needs, creating a proliferation of dashboards in an organization. A more effective solution provides customizable measures for any user.

Beyond Healthcare Dashboards It’s Time for Innovative Healthcare Decision Support Today, following a single KPI trend requires a healthcare leader to analyze hundreds of reports. That executive needs an efficient, self-service tool to leverage the information they need, when they need it, in a form they can use (actionable insights versus cumbersome data). Leading Wisely answers this need with an innovative approach to decision support that brings users more targeted insights and efficiency than dashboards.

Beyond Healthcare Dashboards Three Important Strengths of Leading Wisely TURNS DATA INTO INSIGHTS Leading Wisely turns data into insights by leveraging the EDW to pull and measure data faster than a healthcare dashboard. It can do balanced measures that are important to the user, instead of grooming through three different reports or different dashboards and interpreting them. Leading Wisely puts critical data front and center, so leaders always know, in near real time, what’s happening in their organizations.

Beyond Healthcare Dashboards Three Important Strengths of Leading Wisely IS TRULY SELF SERVICE Traditional dashboards of the past required heavy integration by IT, which normally meant a wait in the working queue. By the time IT built the measure and it showed up in the dashboard, it was often incorrect or the needs had changed and the measure was already obsolete.
