A data visualisation tool has been developed to help IBD teams review their performance against key performance indicators for biological therapies. The tool is available initially for users of the IBD Registry Web Tool. The charts show local data compared with benchmarked standards as well as the national average (based on Web Tool users). The tool is intended to enable teams to review how well they are doing compared to the national standards, prompt them to identify where changes in care are required and support them to implement improvements. For assistance using the data visualisation function of the Web Tool please find the guide here.
How can data visualisation help teams make local improvements?
We are now starting to collect data in real time. This can be analysed using the data visualisation tools allowing to to compare your hospitals performance against the key performance indicators. Data visualisation will help inform decision around quality improvement.
Here are some tips on how to use data visualisation tools:
- It is a good idea to assess your data regularly to see how well you are meeting the targets for the KPI – e.g. monthly
- Check its accuracy – does the data show any surprises?
- Feedback the outputs of the data visualisation to your IBD team
- Act and plan together about how you can make improvements
Resources to help you make local improvements
There are lots of tools available to help you make improvements. We have found a couple of links which you could look at and suggest you use the top tips from these to help you make local improvements for your IBD team.
The National Emergency Laparotomy Audit (NELA) is using data visualisation to drive quality improvements. This video describes the transferable principles and previews the benefits IBD teams will soon see as a result of their quality improvement work.
