White Paper Abstract: In 2005, Bellin Health’s measurement control system had over 250 system-level quality indicators. Many of these
indicators also were reported at the department-level and on varying schedules (monthly, quarterly, annually,
etc.). For example, compliance with the Centers for Disease Control guidelines on health care hand hygiene was
measured across the entire system, the care center level (e.g., invasive clinical services, heart and vascular
services) and the department level where actionable improvement plans could be developed to address the
specific departmental environment. Although none of the current indicators were measured at the shift level, the
potential exists to do so. It was also clear to the Quality Resources team that the demand for quality and safety
information from both accreditation and certification agencies, as well as the general public, would continue to
grow. In this white paper, you'll discover how Bellin revamped this system with one that provided reports that
were timely, directed to the right audience, readily available, and delivered in a format that was
accessible to a variety of users.
