Are you data rich & insight poor?
A common theme right now in the addiction treatment community is the loud voice of “You must collect data!!!” We are hearing this from accreditation agencies and a host of other sources. So collecting data is clearly the first step of analytics, but what happens after you have collected the data?
Ready to improve both operations and patient outcomes? We equip addiction treatment leaders with 3 platform features – easy tools to gain & use data insights. Below we are excited to introduce you to one of the three:
Dashboards: Custom Windows into Your Data
We like to think of Dashboards as custom windows into your data that allow you to answer any question you may have.
This feature relies first on the use of digital surveys through the Midway Analytics platform to make collecting data easy and fast.
At the bottom of this page, we invite you to explore the functionality of an example dashboard, to see how fun and easy it is to use.
First, let us take you on a data journey, by walking through an example of how to use it:
This example Dashboard includes simulated admissions, discharge and follow-up survey data.
First, I can tell from looking at the Dashboard that in this data set that I have 120 patients during the period of Feb 20, 2016 – May 29, 2017. That’s a lot of people who have gone through our treatment.
Bonus Tip: If you wanted to look at patients within a certain time range, you can drag the bar at the top to edit.
Next, let’s say I’m curious about the impact that employment status at admission has on my patient outcomes regarding responsiveness during follow-up.
First, I want to select the “Full-Time” bar from the employment column under Admissions (the first column below).
After I click and the dashboard automatically updates, I’ve now isolated all the results from just the “Full-Time Employed” patients at admission and can look specifically at their results.
Now, I can see reflected below that I have 10 patients total who were fully employed at admission, and 2 that are non-responsive at follow-up.
Now that I’ve seen the impact of being Fully-Employed at admissions, I can use the button on the top right of each graph to clear each filter and will be left with a blank slate to keep exploring.
Pretty cool huh? Now you can explore this data set and tell us what you think!
Ideas to Explore:
- Click a slice of the pie under “Clinician Patient Load” and you can see the results for patients specifically under the care of that clinician
- Click the bar for “Part-Time Employment” under Follow-Up and you can see the results reflected for just those 37 patients who were employed part-time at the time of follow-up
