Step 3 - Site Visit
Top abstract submissions will receive a site visit to move forward for Davies consideration.
Applicants not selected will receive a detailed analysis of their use case abstracts and gain feedback on opportunities for improvement.
During a site visit, applicants will present three case studies showing how health information and technology has enabled improved care outcomes.
Each case study should include:
- Data demonstrating a local clinical and/or business problem prior to the implementation of the health information and technology interventions.
- A detailed description of the governance structure associated with the selection, testing, field testing, and workflow design of the health information and 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 clinical data demonstrating improved adherence to best clinical practices as result of the use of health information and technology, coupled with A MINIMUM of 12 months of improved patient outcomes and population health enabled by improved adherence to model clinical practices from the use of health information and technology.
- An improved best practice- increasing the appropriate use of sepsis bundle order set utilization.
- An improved outcome- reducing length of stay and mortality rates associated with sepsis.
- Detail the organizations change management and analytics model. How is the data for quality improvement monitored? Who triggers change management? What is the process for changing IT interventions, interfaces, order sets, best practice alerts, etc.?
