Waking the health plan giant: Group Health Cooperative stops counting sheep and starts counting key tobacco indicators. (2/1272)

Implementing a comprehensive approach to decreasing tobacco use in a large health plan requires hard work and commitment on the part of many individuals. We found that major organisational change can be accomplished and sustained. Keys to our success included our decision to remove access barriers to our cessation programmes (including cost); obtaining top leadership buy-in; identifying accountable individuals who owned responsibility for change; measuring key processes and outcomes; and finally keeping at it tenaciously through multiple cycles of improvement.  (+info)

Patient waiting times in a physician's office. (3/1272)

This observational study measured waiting times, appointment durations, and scheduling variables of a single family practice physician. Waiting time and appointment duration in four sequential groups of sessions were compared using analysis of variance; each group used different scheduling templates. Groups 1 and 2 used a 15-minute base interval; group 3 used a 20-minute base interval. Observations for group 4 were collected at a different health center using a 15-minute base interval. Scheduling variables were correlated with waiting time using correlation coefficients, and data were collected on 1783 appointments. The best waiting time (mean +/- SD) was 17.33 +/- 19.19 minutes. The mean appointment duration for this group was 17.99 +/- 7.97 minutes. The F statistic comparing the four groups of sessions for waiting times was 34.14 and for appointment duration was 37.37, both of which are significant (P < 0.001). The Spearman correlation coefficient for waiting time with queue was 0.2474 (P < 0.001). The Spearman correlation coefficients for mean waiting time and lateness of starting a session (0.4530), patients per hour (0.3461), and patients per session (0.3674) were all significant (P < 0.001). Both scheduling and patient flow affect patient waiting times. The best schedule would consist of shorter sessions that started on time and were extended to accommodate extra patients rather than adding in patients and crowding the schedule. In addition to reducing the actual waiting times, the perception of waiting can be managed to minimize patient dissatisfaction.  (+info)

Experience measuring performance improvement in multiphase picture archiving and communications systems implementations. (4/1272)

When planning a picture archiving and communications system (PACS) implementation and determining which equipment will be implemented in earlier and later phases, collection and analysis of selected data will aid in setting implementation priorities. If baseline data are acquired relative to performance objectives, the same information used for implementation planning can be used to measure performance improvement and outcomes. The main categories of data to choose from are: (1) financial data; (2) productivity data; (3) operational parameters; (4) clinical data; and (5) information about customer satisfaction. In the authors' experience, detailed workflow data have not proved valuable in measuring PACS performance and outcomes. Reviewing only one category of data in planning will not provide adequate basis for targeting operational improvements that will lead to the most significant gains. Quality improvement takes into account all factors in production: human capacity, materials, operating capital and assets. Once we have identified key areas of focus for quality improvement in each phase, we can translate objectives into implementation requirements and finally into detailed functional and performance requirements. Here, Integration Resources reports its experience measuring PACS performance relative to phased implementation strategies for three large medical centers. Each medical center had its own objectives for overcoming image management, physical/geographical, and functional/technical barriers. The report outlines (1) principal financial and nonfinancial measures used as performance indicators; (2) implementation strategies chosen by each of the three medical centers; and (3) the results of those strategies as compared with baseline data.  (+info)

The philosophy of benchmark testing a standards-based picture archiving and communications system. (5/1272)

The Department of Defense issued its requirements for a Digital Imaging Network-Picture Archiving and Communications System (DIN-PACS) in a Request for Proposals (RFP) to industry in January 1997, with subsequent contracts being awarded in November 1997 to the Agfa Division of Bayer and IBM Global Government Industry. The Government's technical evaluation process consisted of evaluating a written technical proposal as well as conducting a benchmark test of each proposed system at the vendor's test facility. The purpose of benchmark testing was to evaluate the performance of the fully integrated system in a simulated operational environment. The benchmark test procedures and test equipment were developed through a joint effort between the Government, academic institutions, and private consultants. Herein the authors discuss the resources required and the methods used to benchmark test a standards-based PACS.  (+info)

Benchmark testing the Digital Imaging Network-Picture Archiving and Communications System proposal of the Department of Defense. (6/1272)

The Department of Defense issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) for its next generation Picture Archiving and Communications System in January of 1997. The RFP was titled Digital Imaging Network-Picture Archiving and Communications System (DIN-PACS). Benchmark testing of the proposed vendors' systems occurred during the summer of 1997. This article highlights the methods for test material and test system organization, the major areas tested, and conduct of actual testing. Department of Defense and contract personnel wrote test procedures for benchmark testing based on the important features of the DIN-PACS Request for Proposal. Identical testing was performed with each vendor's system. The Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) standard images used for the Benchmark Testing included all modalities. The images were verified as being DICOM standard compliant by the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, Electronic Radiology Laboratory. The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory prepared the Unix-based server for the DICOM images and operated it during testing. The server was loaded with the images and shipped to each vendor's facility for on-site testing. The Defense Supply Center, Philadelphia (DSCP), the Department of Defense agency managing the DIN-PACS contract, provided representatives at each vendor site to ensure all tests were performed equitably and without bias. Each vendor's system was evaluated in the following nine major areas: DICOM Compliance; System Storage and Archive of Images; Network Performance; Workstation Performance; Radiology Information System Performance; Composite Health Care System/Health Level 7 communications standard Interface Performance; Teleradiology Performance; Quality Control; and Failover Functionality. These major sections were subdivided into workable test procedures and were then scored. A combined score for each section was compiled from this data. The names of the involved vendors and the scoring for each is contract sensitive and therefore can not be discussed. All of the vendors that underwent the benchmark testing did well. There was no one vendor that was markedly superior or inferior. There was a typical bell shaped curve of abilities. Each vendor had their own strong points and weaknesses. A standardized benchmark protocol and testing system for PACS architectures would be of great value to all agencies planning to purchase a PACS. This added information would assure the purchased system meets the needed functional requirements as outlined by the purchasers PACS Request for Proposal.  (+info)

The development of a quality information system: a case study of Mexico. (7/1272)

One of the primary obstacles in the implementation of continuous quality improvement (CQI) programmes in developing countries is the lack of timely and appropriate information for decentralized decision-making. The integrated quality information system (QIS) described herein demonstrates Mexico's unique effort to package four separate, yet mutually reinforcing, tools for the generation and use of quality-related information at all levels of the Mexican national health care system. The QIS is one element of the continuous quality improvement programme administered by the Secretariat of Health in Mexico. Mexico's QIS was designed to be flexible and capable of adapting to local needs, while at the same time allowing for the standardization of health care quality assurance indicators, and subsequent ability to measure and compare the quality performance of health facilities nationwide. The flexibility of the system extends to permit the optimal use of available data by health care managers at all levels of the health care system, as well as the generation of new information in important areas often neglected in more traditional information systems. Mexico's QIS consists of four integrated components: 1) a set of client and provider surveys, to assess specific issues in the quality of health services delivered; 2) client and provider national satisfaction surveys; 3) a sentinel health events strategy; and 4) a national Comparative Performance Evaluation System, for use by the Secretariate of Health for the quality assessment of state and provincial health care services (internal benchmarking). The QIS represents another step in Mexico's ongoing effort to use data for effective decision-making in the planning, monitoring and evaluation of services delivered by the national health care system. The design and application of Mexico's QIS provides a model for decentralized decision-making that could prove useful for developing countries, where the effective use of quality indicators is often limited. Further, the system could serve as a mechanism for motivating positive change in the way information is collected and used in the process of ensuring high quality health care service delivery.  (+info)

Inter-hospital comparison of mortality rates. (8/1272)

OBJECTIVE: To compare crude and adjusted in-hospital mortality rates after prostatectomy between hospitals using routinely collected hospital discharge data and to illustrate the value and limitations of using comparative mortality rates as a surrogate measure of quality of care. METHODS: Mortality rates for non-teaching hospitals (n = 21) were compared to a single notional group of teaching hospitals. Patients age, disease (comorbidity), length of stay, emergency admission, and hospital location were identified using ICD-9-CM coded Victorian hospital morbidity data from public hospitals collected between 1987/88 and 1994/95. Comparisons between hospitals were based on crude and adjusted odds ratios (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (CI) derived using univariate and multivariate logistic regression. Model fit was evaluated using receiver operating characteristic curve i.e. statistic, Somer's D, Tau-a, and R2. RESULTS: The overall crude mortality rates between hospitals achieved borderline significance (alpha2=31.31; d.f.=21; P=0.06); these differences were no longer significant after adjustment (chi2=25.68; P=0.21). On crude analysis of mortality rates, four hospitals were initially identified as 'low' outlier hospitals; after adjustment, none of these remained outside the 95% CI, whereas a new hospital emerged as a 'high' outlier (OR=4.56; P= 0.05). The adjusted ORs between hospitals compared to the reference varied from 0.21 to 5.54, ratio = 26.38. The model provided a good fit to the data (c=0.89; Somer's D= (0.78; Tau-a = 0.013; R2= 0.24). CONCLUSIONS: Regression adjustment of routinely collected data on prostatectomy from the Victorian Inpatient Minimum Database reduced variance associated with age and correlates of illness severity. Reduction of confounding in this way is a move in the direction of exploring differences in quality of care between hospitals. Collection of such information over time, together with refinement of data collection would provide indicators of change in quality of care that could be explored in more detail as appropriate in the clinical setting.  (+info)

Downloadable (with restrictions)! Huggins R. Regional competitive intelligence: benchmarking and policy-making, Regional Studies. Benchmarking exercises have become increasingly popular within the sphere of regional policy-making. This paper analyses the concept of regional benchmarking and its links with regional policy-making processes. It develops a typology of regional benchmarking exercises and benchmarkers, and critically reviews the literature. It is argued that critics of regional benchmarking fail to take account of the variety and development of regional benchmarking systems. It is suggested that while benchmarking exercises are informing policy adaptation and innovation, they have been constrained by political and financial factors. It is concluded that regional benchmarking is facilitating the heightened regional interaction necessitated by globalization. [image omitted] Huggins R.

Downloadable! This study proposes a managerial accounting research design that bridges a gap between firm productivity based on frontier techniques and strategic management. In doing so, it operationalizes the theoretical frameworks based on the endogenous components of across-firms heterogeneous resources and routines, which are fundamental for firm performance. The design focuses on industry-level benchmarking to analyze changes in performance and organizational knowledge investments, and proposes some indicators for firm-level strategic benchmarking. An analysis of a twelve-years panel of the U.S. technology hardware and equipment industry illustrates the usefulness of the proposals. Findings reveal wider gaps between better and worse performers following economic distress. Increasing intangibles stocks is positively associated with changes in frontier benchmarking, while enhancing R&D spending is linked to frontier shifts. The discussion develops managerial interpretations suitable for control and
A questionnaire was designed and piloted with the help of a consulting firm with expertise in benchmarking. In all, the questionnaire was distributed to a sample of 15 operating offices in headquarters and the six regions. Three main elements were incorporated in the questionnaire. First, questions relating to the level of responsibilities of the respondent and the business profile of their operations. Second, questions on the level of resources (FTEs) used to support the finance functions and their associated processes. This approach assumed that the people cost is the main driver of cost within the finance functions. Third, whether the office was applying formal or informal measures (including the set of measures developed earlier) for measuring performance in each of the areas covered by the study and if so, what they were. This was a precursor to the main survey and the results were used to develop the main survey questionnaire.. Choose benchmarking partners. The search for benchmarking ...

The study took place between July 2010 and May 2011 in a remote Central Australian community. The methods were adapted from the models of care health service planning approach18 and an earlier NT cost study.10 Using the models of care approach, Segal and colleagues18 began with local best-practice protocols and estimated the staff time required to complete each of the recommended tasks for a given population. The population health status was assessed and the best-practice health care tasks required for that population were defined for each health profession involved. The time required per patient per year for each task was then determined, and the health care staffing resources then calculated for the population. Zhao and colleagues10 used an analogous approach to estimate the total operating costs of a reasonably efficient remote Aboriginal health service. Population needs were defined in terms of the CARPA STM protocols.15 The time estimate given in the definition of each linked Medicare ...
Igniters, All critical code changes should be covered by benchmarks. Currently, community have no dedicated benchmarking service. Everyone can run yandstick locally, but this seems to be useless. You have to run cluster on 4 clients and 4 servers, at least. Currently it is not possible for me to perform benchmarking using 8+ real servers. Also, some automation requred to have reliable check of two branchs with one feature difference, since yardstick will provide you branch check, not a branches comparision. So, my question is: Is there anybody at community able to perform benchmarks on real hardware and already have automation to compare 2 branches ...

In the context of a university library, quality management encompasses planning, service evaluation, performance monitoring, client satisfaction, continuous improvement and, most importantly, the relationships and interactions between these. This paper will discuss the outcomes of a benchmarking project undertaken in 2005-2006 by the university Libraries of the Australian Technology Network (LATN), which aimed to establish best practice in quality management within ATN libraries. While the project achieved its objective of establishing best practice, its outcomes have also highlighted that leadership plays a key role - from the conception to the embedding - in a librarys quality management program and culture of quality. The influence of the library leader (university librarian or equivalent) is unequivocal in the effectiveness of a librarys quality management program. Outcomes of the LATN benchmarking project also illustrate that the leadership displayed by others is pivotal in the ...
There are lots of questions out there about foundation governance. Yet there has been little data about foundation boards structures and practice.

Provided courtesy of FM BENCHMARKING. As you can see, there are some significant changes in our ranking position that are made simply by better peer group comparisons from applying filters. A true peer group comparison shows our facility near the middle of the 3rd quartile. That isnt a great position and indicates a need for additional analysis to see why our costs are so high.. To reduce our maintenance costs, the next step in the process would be to see which Best Practices are being employed by the buildings that our to the left of ours in the chart. We then can see what we may do differently in our facility. Well present more on this in next months article.. In conclusion you can see how the application of filters can impact your relative rankings in a very significant way. This allows for comparisons to a more similar peer group and is a much more effective way of using benchmarking tools. ...
Description of problem: The Red Hat OpenStack Platform 10 Benchmarking Service Guide is not correct in delivering installation instructions of Rally within the Rally 0.7.0 rpm shipped with RHOS10 release. Instead of providing information on the RHOS10 rally rpm we give very basic information on how to install via installation script as done within the upstream git repository. This should be fixed immediately as it is the impression that there was no QA verifying this. [ install_rally.sh is not included in the package] Also note, that the creation of venv is not possible when using the rpm this way. Additionally the rally deployment create routine should have a dedicated explanation. As it forms the base for the successfull usage of the package.

Computational methods provide approaches to identify epitopes in protein Ags to help characterizing potential biomarkers identified by high-throughput genomic or proteomic experiments. PEPOP version 1.0 was developed as an antigenic or immunogenic peptide prediction tool. We have now improved this tool by implementing 32 new methods (PEPOP version 2.0) to guide the choice of peptides that mimic discontinuous epitopes and thus potentially able to replace the cognate protein Ag in its interaction with an Ab. In the present work, we describe these new methods and the benchmarking of their performances. Benchmarking was carried out by comparing the peptides predicted by the different methods and the corresponding epitopes determined by X-ray crystallography in a dataset of 75 Ag-Ab complexes. The Sensitivity (Se) and Positive Predictive Value (PPV) parameters were used to assess the performance of these methods. The results were compared to that of peptides obtained either by chance or by using the

On July 10th Architelos released the first NameSentry Report, benchmarking abuse levels in the domain name industry. For some time now, a debate has raged about the potential impact of new gTLDs on Internet safety and security, namely abusive registrations such as phishing, spam, malware, and so on. However, without benchmarking the current state, how can we realistically evaluate if new gTLDs have made any measureable difference in the level of abuse?

In 2016, members of the Group for Research and Assessment of Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis (GRAPPA), in collaboration with KPMG LLP (UK), conducted a study to measure care in psoriatic arthritis (PsA). A key finding was that centers do not usually have processes in place to measure the effect of improved quality of care. Our objectives were to identify and select best-practice indicators to enable PsA caregivers to assess and monitor the outcomes of specific initiatives aimed at improving care in 4 focus areas: (1) shortening time to diagnosis; (2) improving multidisciplinary collaboration; (3) optimizing disease management; and (4) improving disease monitoring ...

Systematic comparison and numerical benchmarking have been successfully carried out among three different approaches of neoclassical toroidal viscosity (NTV) theory and the corresponding codes: IPEC-PENT is developed based on the combined NTV theory but without geometric simplifications [Park et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. 102, 065002 (2009)]; MARS-Q includes smoothly connected NTV formula [Shaing et al., Nucl. Fusion 50, 025022 (2010)] based on Shaings analytic formulation in various collisionality regimes; MARS-K, originally computing the drift kinetic energy, is upgraded to compute the NTV torque based on the equivalence between drift kinetic energy and NTV torque [J.-K. Park, Phys. Plasma 18, 110702 (2011)]. The derivation and numerical results both indicate that the imaginary part of drift kinetic energy computed by MARS-K is equivalent to the NTV torque in IPEC-PENT. In the benchmark of precession resonance between MARS-Q and MARS-K/IPEC-PENT, the agreement and correlation between the connected ...
7. Benchmarking hospital costs in the UK: increasing efficiency and driving innovation in a health care industry?* Sue Llewellyn and Deryl Northcott INTRODUCTION A Health Industry Model (HIM) recognizes the broad contribution that health care can make to national economic development. Yet, wherever and whenever health care is publicly financed, a key government policy objective is achieving technological development and innovation within resource constraints. Governments have employed a variety of mechanisms to achieve this aim. In the UK, for example, since the 1980s, health care management policy has undergone several reforms, from general management to resource management and the internal market through to, latterly, the New Labour governments modernization programme. Several authors have charted the history of these developments (see, for example, Bourn and Ezzamel, 1986a; Broadbent et al., 1991; Broadbent, 1992; Preston et al., 1992; Harrison and Pollitt, 1994; Hood, 1995; Jones and ...

In 2018, CURT and the Construction Industry Institute (CII) aligned their safety performance tracking efforts and databases to launch a robust, joint Safety Benchmarking Portal (SBP). The SBP is centralized through the Construction Labor Market Analyzer® application (with direct links from the CURT and CII websites) providing a single, cohesive platform for safety metrics, productivity metrics and labor risk analytics.. A foundational tenant of both CURT and CII is to help improve safety performance on construction projects and drive incidents, injuries and fatalities to zero. Every organization is in a different place in their journey to zero, so no two paths are the same; however, every organization desires the same outcome - zero injuries. Therefore, to obtain the desired results from all members of the team on any project, there must be a shared perspective of what it means to be working toward the achievement of the outcome. What is our track record internally? How do we compare to other ...

Internet-Draft Benchmarking Containerized Infra March 2020 page should be set to at least 1G byte. In the VM-based infrastructure, the host OS and the hypervisor can configure a huge page depending on the guest OS. For example, guest VMs with the Linux OS requires to set huge pages at least 1G bytes. Even though it is a huge size, since this memory page is for not only its running application but also guest OS operation processes, actual memory pages for application is smaller. In the containerized infrastructure, the container is isolated in the application level and administrators can set huge pages more granular level (e.g. Kubernetes allows to use of 512M bytes huge pages for the container as default values). Moreover, this page is dedicated to the application but another process so application use page more efficient way. Therefore, even if the page size is smaller than the VM, the effect of the huge page is large, which leads to the utilization of physical memory and the increasing number ...

Since its release, NPB 1 displayed two major weaknesses. Firstly, due to its paper-and-pencil specification, computer vendors usually highly tuned their implementations so that their performance became difficult for scientific programmers to attain. Secondly, many of these implementation were proprietary and not publicly available, effectively concealing their optimizing techniques. Secondly, problem sizes of NPB 1 lagged behind the development of supercomputers as the latter continued to evolve.[3] NPB 2, released in 1996,[5][6] came with source code implementations for five out of eight benchmarks defined in NPB 1 to supplement but not replace NPB 1. It extended the benchmarks with an up-to-date problem size Class C. It also amended the rules for submitting benchmarking results. The new rules included explicit requests for output files as well as modified source files and build scripts to ensure public availability of the modifications and reproducibility of the results.[3] NPB 2.2 contained ...
