Demonstrating Value Through Data — Participant Information

Program originally recorded November 8, 2023.

Data is captured in a variety of ways but is often underutilized to impact positive change. Hospitals may be able to do a better job applying data analysis tools to reinforce goals, support or challenge processes, and demonstrate value.  

Join CHA to learn how UCSF Health, ranked among the nation’s top ten hospitals, utilizes dashboards to identify data trends, apply information to drive process improvements, and help case managers be more visible and effective.  

This webinar will demonstrate how data can effectively influence: 

  • Length of stay goals 
  • Readmission reduction 
  • Case management metrics 
  • Workflows and performance
