Step 3: Site Visit
Use case submissions where all abstracts demonstrate information and technology enabled sustainable improvements in patient outcomes will receive a site visit. During the site visit, the Davies team will review the governance, workflow, and change management processes of the use case to determine if the use cases warrant Davies consideration.
Applicants not selected will receive a detailed analysis of their Abstracts and gain feedback on opportunities for improvement.
During a site visit, applicants will demonstrate three use cases for Enterprise applicants, two use cases for Ambulatory, Community Health, and Public Health applicants, showing how Health IT has enabled improved care outcomes.
Each use case should include:
- Data demonstrating a local clinical and/or business problem prior to the implementation of the information and technology applications described in the use case.
- A detailed description of the governance structure associated with the selection, testing, field testing, and workflow design of the information & technology enabled interventions and workflow intended to improve the local problem.
- A detailed demonstration showing the longitudinal workflow and all the information & technology interventions utilized to improve the clinical problem.
- Presenting A MINIMUM of 12 months of improved adherence to best practices coupled with A MINIMUM of 12 months of improved outcomes enabled through the use of information & technology.
- An improved best practice- increasing % of pneumonia vaccinations for patients over the age of 65
- An improved outcome- reducing the number of hospitalizations of the organizations patients over 65 associated with pneumonia.
