Abstract:
Concurrent Podium Presentation: In January 2005, a re-vitalization of the Performance Improvement (PI) program for patient care services occurred. Through the evolution of the program and support of upper management, new and innovative approaches to data collection, graphing, analysis, program creation, and problem resolution have evolved. Roadblocks and bumps in the road have served as catalysis to the success of this program. One of the keys to the success of the PI program was moving standard paper data collection sheets to an interactive web based data collection Portal. This intranet-based system, created through a collaborative effort with the hospital's web developer, allows users a friendly interface for data entry and analytical tools that immediately analyze and graph results. Through the use of innovative technologies and the increased participation of direct care staff as primary data collectors, performance improvement has become a personal experience and has resulted in improved patient outcomes. Two years have passed since the PI Committee has been re-energized. Magnetism is demonstrated in the high participation and attendance rates of the staff nurse representatives at the PI committee meetings. Staff education, empowerment, and participation in PI have led to the nurse's ability to analyze results and modify or continue nursing interventions accordingly. Through the PI Committee staff nurses have emerged as leaders in nursing, as well as, sparking PI initiative throughout the hospital.
