    Tuesday, Oct 2


    4:10pm - 5:00pm

    CE Session

    Accreditation's:  ANCC/ACCME

    Session Description:

    Long-term care is finally beginning to have the necessary analytics capabilities that enable system-wide quality improvement and cost reduction efforts. This program will provide a basic oversight regarding how administrators can use analytics to increase the quality of care and financial health of the organization and use the obtained information to meet the stringent criteria of the AHCA National Quality Award program. The real promise of analytics lies in its ability to transform healthcare into a truly data-driven culture by providing key metrics and information to allow sound management decisions that engender performance excellence. This session will provide administrators and other key management personnel highly useful information to take back to their facilities to begin thinking about quality and financial improvement from a data management perspective. They will be able to use this data to assist them in achieving organizational excellence and recognition through the ACHCA National Quality Award program.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Describe and create a workflow process demonstrating how information technology influences various contemporary quality improvement activities in long-term care.
    2. Identify how data analytics can be applied to the AHCA/Baldrige framework and be used on a daily basis to create operational and financial efficacy with their organization
    3. Demonstrate an understanding of the role of data analytics/information technology in organizational quality improvement efforts to achieve organizational excellence within the long-term care setting.

    Target Audience:

    Long-Term Care Administrators and other management personnel who use data as a catalyst to engender quality and financial organizational improvement.
