What is a clinical quality dashboard?
A clinical dashboard is a toolset developed to provide clinicians with the relevant and timely information they need to inform daily decisions that improve quality of patient care. It provides these tools in a visual and user friendly format.
Dashboards are used in all types of management information systems and are designed to offer the user a quick and easy way to access tools and information. The idea is that all of the links are at the user’s fingertips, similar to a dashboard in a car.
In terms of quality improvement, dashboards have been developed as a way for clinicians to monitor patient care. Dashboards offer an excellent way to pull internal reports and analyze the day-to-day quality of care. A key benefit of a clinical quality dashboard is that they are an easy clinical decision aide tool.
