Hospital-Specific Health Equity Dashboards
Effective Jan. 1, 2023, The Joint Commission and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services integrated health care equity standards into their health care accreditation and payment programs.
In response, MHA’s data services company, the Hospital Industry Data Institute, developed Hospital-Specific Health Equity Dashboards to help hospitals comply and improve.
Developed in collaboration with stakeholders from MHA’s Strategic Quality and Health Equity committees and HIDI’s Strategic Advisory Committee, the new dashboards provide hospital-specific insight into the care provided to patient populations through a sociodemographic lens — available to HIDI-participating MHA and SLMHC members at no cost.
Stratifying the administrative claims data already collected by HIDI in this way provides unprecedented value by illuminating precisely where finite resources should be allocated to make the most impact. Hospitals also gain the added benefits of peer benchmarking and visibility into potential data collection gaps.
Authorized users of HIDI’s Care Optics Business Intelligence platform can access the new dashboards by logging in to the HIDI Advantage User Portal.
Complete HIDI’s contact form and indicate that you’d like access to your hospital-specific health equity dashboards through Care Optics to initiate the process. A member of the HIDI team will follow up by sending an Authorization form to the email address provided, which will need to be routed to the hospital CEO for authorization.
Public-Facing Health Equity Dashboards
In addition to the Hospital-Specific Health Equity Dashboards, a suite of five public-facing health equity-focused dashboards are available that offer previously unavailable granularity in health outcomes, health factors and social determinants of health for finite population segments and geographic areas in Missouri.
