CASE STUDY: NURSING WORKFORCE
Nursing Workforce Analytical Solution to Optimize Health Human Resources (HHR)
Currently our healthcare system is feeling the impacts of staffing challenges, specifically in the Nursing workforce. The Decision Support & Data Analytics (DS&DA) team collaborated with Nursing leadership and multiple internal stakeholders to develop a first of its kind nursing performance measurement framework and the analytical dashboard solution that empowers operational managers and nursing teams to review nursing key performance indicators (KPIs), analyze trends with the COVID-19 waves, identify correlations between metrics (e.g. staffing transfers from full-time positions to part-time positions and vice-versa that were triggered by % Overtime and % Sick time measures) and review staffing situations at department level, role type level and age demographics. Join us and explore:
- The challenge in measuring and reporting on Nursing KPIs is that there are no well-established KPIs that provide good benchmarking standards for measuring their performance
- Review a newly developed nursing performance measurement framework for nursing specific metrics that takes into account the Ontario Health’s Quadruple Aim framework and aligns metrics to improved patient outcomes, improved provider experience and HHR metrics with lower cost to care.
- Analyzing and linking Nursing HHR metrics like % Overtime, % Sick time, and staffing availability to quality metrics and patient care metrics and get a holistic snapshot at the departmental level and how these metrics roll-up organization wide.
- This collaborative between Decision Support & Data Analytics (DS&DA) and Nursing leadership demonstrates that adopting an insight and data-driven approach and infusing analytics into day-to-day operations produces innovative solutions and improves workflow efficiencies.
