Dashboard Benchmark Evaluation

o 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?
o 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?

 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?
o 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?
o Communicate your findings and recommendations in a professional and effective manner.
 Ensure that your report is well organized and easy to read.
