Leadership Buy-In Resources Overview

This section of the website provides resources intended to help spur leadership action on to new or improved quality efforts. The tools are intended to be used by leaders, but also by other Health Center staff who are determined to solicit the help of leaders on quality work.

Embarking on, or making significant advancements to quality work requires strong Health Center leadership.  Leaders help define how decisions will be made, provide the resources necessary to analyze data and processes, and develop or guide strategic planning efforts that integrate all the functions of a Health Center.  At the highest level of function, quality is driven by organizational culture, rather than strategy.  Here too, leaders play important roles in helping to define and spread culture change throughout an organization.

Building a Data-Driven Culture: Video Learning Series and Case Study

From the Center for Care Innovations

What does a data-driven culture mean? According to this case study from the Center for Care Innovations (CCI), it means staff at all levels use data to inform and guide clinical, operational and financial decisions. They understand the difference between qualitative and quantitative data and the role that each plays in decision making. They can relate their daily activities to the bar charts, dashboards and other performance visualizations that are displayed in the health center or in staff meetings, and there is a transparent process for prioritizing analytic efforts and data access. In a data-driven organization, leaders and staff embrace data.

No matter how new payment and care models evolve, the organizations that take the best care of patients in the most cost effective way will thrive. When clinical outcomes must be balanced with operational efficiency, a data driven culture can mean the difference between a good healthcare organization and an outstanding one. CCI’s Safety Net Analytics Program (SNAP) supported participants in developing and spreading an awareness of the critical importance of data and analytics throughout their organizations.
