Focused Performance Improvement Studies


Several of the SOIX core performance and benchmark measures are also required for CMS, such as returns to surgery, hospital admissions and complications from the procedure. The figure below shows a sample Executive Report that summarizes the measurements with comparisons between the percentages for Your Center and the percentages for All Centers. Color indicators alert you to favorable and unfavorable performance. This example shows the favorable measures for Your Center in green, while those that need evaluation are in red (Delayed Discharge) and those in yellow should be closely monitored (Perceived Excellence).  A quality improvement study might include determining whether or not the delays in discharge are in any way related to the perceived excellence.  Detailed SOIX benchmarking reports, such as Recovery Time, can help aid in this evaluation.
