Introduction to Benchmarking

In today’s value-based care environment, hospitals continually strive to improve patient quality and outcomes. Benchmarking is a powerful tool that, if interpreted and used properly, can be a useful guide in this journey. Supply chain professionals have the ability to access and compare data from a number of sources including within their organizations, across multiple organizations, and from national registries.

 This session will provide an understanding of purpose and use of a benchmarking strategy. The importance of benchmarking will be outlined, metrics defined, and tracking processes explained. An overview of available benchmarking tools, data sources, and the benefits an organization can reasonably expect by incorporating a benchmarking strategy will also be reviewed.

This webinar was sponsored by AHRMM’s CQO sponsor, Vizient.
