Gaining Actionable Data from Patient Leader Rounding
The term “big data” in healthcare has become synonymous with informed decision making. We live in an age where vast amounts of aggregated data and resources are available to key decision makers. Processes like patient leader rounding can provide substantial insight into patient experience, satisfaction, and safety from the data gathered during rounds. But there’s a problem with this data: it can be challenging to dissect relevant and actionable insights.
CMS acting administrator Andy Slavitt says, “Healthcare providers are overloaded on data entry yet rampantly under-informed.” Here at Nobl, we are creating tools like Hourly, Leader and Employee to help with data collection and analysis of rounding processes, making the discovery of actionable data simple.
We have compiled a simple list to help your organization begin the conversation around actionable rounding data.
- Is your data simple to collect and is it stored in a central digital location?
- Is your data presented in a clear and concise format and is it customizable to the decision maker?
- Is both compliance and survey data reports readily available to all leaders?
- Is your organization reviewing rounding data frequently and making process changes based on the data?
Purposeful patient leader rounding is an excellent opportunity for decision makers to gain actionable data directly from patients.
