Dashboard and Health

For this assessment, you may choose one of the following three options for a performance dashboard to use as the basis for your benchmark evaluation.

Option 1: Dashboard and Health Care Benchmark Evaluation Simulation

If you decide to use one of the simulation dashboards for your evaluation, review both dashboards, as well as the relevant local, state, and federal laws and policies linked in each dashboard. Choose one of the dashboards and consider the metrics within it  that are falling short of the prescribed benchmarks.

Option 2: Actual Dashboard From a Professional Practice Setting

If you choose an actual dashboard from a professional practice setting for your evaluation, be sure to add a brief description of the organization and setting that includes:

· The size of the facility that the dashboard is reporting on.

· The specific type of care delivery.

· The population diversity and ethnicity demographics.

· The socioeconomic level of the population served by the organization.

Note: Ensure that your data is Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliant. Do not use any easily identifiable organization or patient information.

Option 3: Hypothetical Dashboard Based on a Professional Practice Setting

If you have a sophisticated understanding of dashboards that are relevant to your own practice, you may also construct a hypothetical dashboard for your evaluation, based on that setting. Your hypothetical dashboard must present at least four different metrics, at least two of which must be under-performing the relevant benchmark set forth by a federal, state, or local laws or policies. In addition, be sure to add a brief description of the organization and setting that includes:

· The size of the facility that the dashboard is reporting on.

· The specific type of care delivery.

· The population diversity and ethnicity demographics.

· The socioeconomic level of the population served by the organization.

Note: Ensure that your data is HIPAA compliant. Do not use any easily identifiable organization or patient information.

Report Requirements

Structure your report in such a way that it would be easy for a colleague or supervisor to locate the information they need. Be sure to cite relevant local, state, or federal health care laws or policies when evaluating metric performance against prescribed benchmarks. Cite an additional 2–4 credible sources to support your analysis and evaluation of the challenges in meeting the benchmarks, the potential for performance improvement, and your advocacy for ethical action.

Note: The tasks outlined below correspond to grading criteria in the scoring guide.

In your report, be sure to:

· Evaluate dashboard metrics against the benchmarks set by local, state, or federal health care laws or policies.

9. Which metrics are below the mandated benchmarks in the organization? Evaluate weaknesses within the entire set of benchmarks.

9. What are the local, state, or federal health care laws or policies that set these benchmarks?

. Analyze challenges that meeting prescribed benchmarks can pose for the organization or for an interprofessional team.

10. What are the specific challenges or opportunities that the organization or interprofessional team might have in meeting the benchmarks? For example, consider:

1. The strategic direction of the organization.

1. The organization’s mission.

1. Available resources:

3. Staffing.

3. Operational and capital funding.

3. Physical space.

3. Support services (any ancillary department that supports a specific care unit in the organization, such as a pharmacy, cleaning services, and dietary services).
