Benchmark Dashboard Evaluation

NHSFP5004 Capella Evaluation of Dashboards Healthcare Policy Proposal Paper  Preparation

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 the simulation dashboard for your evaluation, review the dashboard, as well as relevant local, state, and federal laws and policies. Consider the metrics within the dashboard that are falling short of 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 underperforming 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. NHSFP5004 Capella Evaluation of Dashboards Healthcare Policy Proposal Paper
  • 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. NHSFP5004 Capella Evaluation of Dashboards Healthcare Policy Proposal Paper

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.
    • Which metrics are below the mandated benchmarks in the organization? Evaluate weaknesses within the entire set of benchmarks.
    • 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.
    • What are the specific challenges or opportunities that the organization or interprofessional team might have in meeting the benchmarks? For example, consider:
      • The strategic direction of the organization.
      • The organization’s mission.
      • Available resources:
        • Staffing.
        • Operational and capital funding.
        • Physical space.
        • Support services (any ancillary department that supports a specific care unit in the organization, such as a pharmacy, cleaning services, and dietary services).
      • Cultural diversity in the organization.
      • Cultural diversity in the community.
      • Organizational processes and procedures.
    • How might these challenges be contributing to benchmark underperformance?
  • Evaluate a benchmark underperformance in the organization or interprofessional team that has the potential for greatly improving overall quality or performance.
    • Which metric is underperforming its benchmark by the greatest degree?
    • Which benchmark underperformance is the most widespread throughout the organization or interprofessional team?
    • Which benchmark affects the greatest number of patients?
    • Which benchmark affects the greatest number of staff?
    • How does this underperformance affect the community the organization serves?
    • Where is the greatest opportunity for improvement in the overall quality or performance of the organization or interpersonal team—and ultimately in patient outcomes?
  • Advocate for ethical action in addressing the benchmark underperformance that has the potential for greatly improving overall quality or performance.
    • At which group of stakeholders should your advocacy be directed? Which group could be expected to take the appropriate action to improve the benchmark metric?
    • What are some ethical actions that the stakeholder group could take that support improved benchmark performance?
    • Why should the stakeholder group take action?
  • Communicate your findings and recommendations in a professional and effective manner.
    • Ensure that your report is well organized and easy to read.
    • Write clearly and logically, using correct grammar, punctuation, and mechanics.
  • Integrate relevant sources to support your arguments, correctly formatting source citations and references using current APA style.
    • Did you cite relevant local, state, or federal health care laws or policies when discussing the mandated benchmarks?
    • Did you cite an additional 2–4 credible sources to support your analysis, evaluation, and advocacy?

Written Proposal and Implementation Guidelines for an Organizational Policy

In this assessment, you will build on the dashboard benchmark evaluation work you completed in Assessment 1.

Preparation
After reviewing your benchmark evaluation, senior leaders in the organization have asked you to draft a policy change proposal and practice guidelines addressing the benchmark metric for which you advocated action.

In their request, senior leaders have asked for a proposal of not more than 2–4 pages that includes a concise policy description (about one paragraph), practice guidelines, and 3–5 credible references to relevant research, case studies, or best practices that support your analysis and recommendations. You are also expected to be precise, professional, and persuasive in justifying the merit of your proposed actions. NHSFP5004 Capella Evaluation of Dashboards Healthcare Policy Proposal Paper

When creating your policy and guidelines it may be helpful to utilize the template that your current care setting or organization uses. Your setting’s risk management or quality department could be a good resource for finding an appropriate template or format. If you are not currently in practice, or your care setting does not have these resources, there are numerous appropriate templates freely available on the Internet.

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

In your proposal, senior leaders have asked that you:

Explain why a change in organizational policy or practice guidelines is needed to address a shortfall in meeting a performance benchmark prescribed by applicable local, state, or federal health care laws or policies.What is the current benchmark for the organization? What is the numeric score for the underperformance?
How might the benchmark underperformance be affecting the quality of care being provided or the operations of the organization?
What are the potential repercussions of not making any changes?
Recommend ethical, evidence-based strategies to resolve the performance issue.What does the evidence-based literature suggest are potential strategies to improve performance for your targeted benchmark?
How would these strategies ensure improved performance or compliance with applicable local, state, or federal health care laws or policies?
How would you propose to apply these strategies in the context of your chosen professional practice setting?
How would you ensure that the application of these strategies is ethical and culturally inclusive?
Does your policy encompass the key components of your recommendations?
Analyze the potential effects of environmental factors on your recommended strategies.What regulatory considerations could affect your recommended strategies?
What organizational resources could affect your recommended strategies (for example, staffing, finances, logistics, and support services)?
Are your policy and guidelines realistic in light of existing environmental factors?
Propose a succinct policy and guidelines to enable a team, unit, or the organization as a whole to implement recommended strategies to resolve the performance issue related to the relevant local, state, or federal health care policy or law.
Identify colleagues, individual stakeholders, or stakeholder groups who should be involved in further development and implementation of your proposed policy, guidelines, and recommended strategies.Why is it important to engage these colleagues, individual stakeholders, or stakeholder groups?
Do your proposed guidelines help colleagues, individual stakeholders, or stakeholder groups understand how to implement your proposed policy?
How might engaging these colleagues, individual stakeholders, or stakeholder groups result in a better organizational policy and smoother implementation?
Are your proposal and recommended strategies realistic, given the care team, unit, or organization you are considering?
Communicate your proposed policy, guidelines, and recommended strategies in a professional and persuasive manner.Write clearly and logically, using correct grammar, punctuation, and mechanics.
Integrate relevant sources to support your arguments, correctly formatting source citations and references using current APA style.Did you cite an additional 3–5 credible sources to support your analysis and recommendations?
