Presented by Beth Snow
Commonly used approaches to assessing programs and services (audit, monitoring, evaluation, research, and quality improvement) are often ill-defined and conflated in healthcare, both in the literature and in practice. Our team created a framework highlighting the distinctive features of the approaches, and where they overlap, with the aim of fostering a more comprehensive understanding of the approaches and how they can be leveraged to provide value to healthcare organizations. In this presentation, we will reflect on our recent experience of bringing together these approaches during the implementation of new clinical practices and a shared electronic health record at Lions Gate and Squamish General Hospitals. We will discuss how the framework helped us to clarify roles and develop relationships with Decision Support, Quality, and Clinical Informatics to monitor the progress of the implementation, work towards quality improvement in how the system is implemented, and gather rich data for the evaluation.
