Introduction: Since its inception in 1996 as one of the American Nurse's Association's first six state-based nursing quality measurement research and development projects, the California Nursing Outcomes Coalition, now known as the Collaborative Alliance for Nursing Quality Outcomes (CalNOC), has pushed the outer edges of analytical methods for the study of how unit level nurse staffing and nurse driven processes of care, impact patient outcomes. Although, CalNOC methods have been extensively reported elsewhere (Aydin, 2004; Donaldson, JONA [dashboard], 2005; Bolton, 2007 and Aydin, 2008 [virtual dashboard]), the analytic and methodological challenges confronting CalNOC in its benchmarking, best practices, and ratios evaluation efforts have been unprecedented and the resulting insights and templates emerging from CalNOC may guide others who share a similar research and strategic guest. Aims: This symposium examines the challenges and resulting methods used by CalNOC to optimize the integrity of its benchmarking, best practices, and ratios evaluation studies. With the aim of providing CalNOC member hospitals with information to guide their strategic performance improvement efforts, the CalNOC research team has confronted a series of methodological issues steeped in convention and administrative tradition. Leveraging the most sophisticated analytic approaches, it became clear that the "received view" did not necessarily fit the data, provide accurate information to guide performance improvement, or benefit insightful public policy decision making. This paper addresses these challenges and proposes analytic and methodological approaches to spark discussion, debate, and further study. Purposefully planned to ensure adequate time for rich discussion among participants, this symposium will present three papers that focus on how CalNOC has approached its analytical and methodological study of benchmarks, best practices, and ratios evaluation. In the midst of national demand for evidence-based performance excellence as the basis for accreditation, reimbursement, and public comparisons, CalNOC analytic insights and models may be timely and invaluable.
