Guest speakers

Jessica Hamilton & Laura Schwartz, Researchers, Health Quality Council

Session description

Have you ever worked on developing a measurement plan with your quality improvement team and experienced disagreement on the types of measures needed, how much data is needed, and how often to collect it? This session will help to answer some common questions experienced when selecting measures, as well as understand perspectives that team members may be bringing to your measurement discussion.

By the end of this session, participants will:

  • Appreciate the importance of measurement in supporting quality improvement work
  • Differentiate between the three types of measurement: data for improvement, data for research, data for accountability
  • Describe the different attributes of each type of measurement
  • Understand how all three forms of measurement are important to understanding your system as a whole
