Embedding IT Experts to Solve Complex Care Challenges
10:30am - 11:30amThursday, March 8
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
University of Missouri Health Care uses the Performance Improvement Leadership Development Program (PI-LDP), an action-based learning program for interdisciplinary and inter-professional teams to work on select problems identified by MU Health Care leaders. Beginning in 2016, every PI-LDP initiative has an embedded IT associate as a team member because nearly every significant quality, safety- or value-related problem has the need for IT expertise. Additionally, a Quality Improvement(QI) tracker monitors progress and tracks results from all QI projects and ties those results into quarterly operations cycle reviews as well as individual performance evaluations. This session will review a PI-LDP project to reduce admissions in the Congestive Heart Failure patient population and discuss results achieved.
