Because performance improvement activities are information intensive, organizations must provide the proper resources and systems to support improvements. It’s important to recognize that PI programs need to meet accreditation standards such as The Joint Commission and Medicare and Medicaid Conditions of Participation, which require access to national comparative data collections. This assignment, based on a textbook case study, will help students to understand Joint Commission information management standards by analyzing how a scenario relates those standards.

Instructions

  • Assign the appropriate quality code using the key provided in figure 17.5
  • Analyze the data:

    • Is there one service that seems to be a problem?
    • What can you conclude from the data?
  • Establish a plan. How you are going to fix the problem?
  • Your submission should be a minimum of two pages but does not require APA style or outside research.
