Congratulations to Dianna Jernigan, RN, MSN, director of quality, risk management, and education at Cobre Valley Regional Medical Center in Globe, Ariz. for winning a free seat at the 15th Annual Credentialing Resource Center Symposium. Jernigan submitted a quality dashboard form that the organization uses to get a quick snapshot of how practitioners are doing with certain quality measures, such as Hospital Consumer Assessment of Health Providers and Systems survey results and core measures. Jernigan says the dashboard is a quick and concise way to look at the information, and has led to increased accountability among the medical staff.
“It used to be, we had someone in medical records that reported the core measures and turned them in and the report only went to administration; no one else really ever saw it,” she says. “Now we have someone who gets that information, it comes here to this report, than all of the directors are able to see it and be held responsible for their part in those scores.”
