In this fourth post in our tutorial series on creating advanced analytic feedback loops for interventional cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, and electrophysiologists, we detail how to deliver continuous, innovative performance feedback. This is the final feedback loop step after tracking and managing performance, and acquiring the data you need to answer questions generated in earlier steps.
Improving performance is a lifelong endeavor, not a one-time project. Delivering the very best care requires continuous learning, driven by insights—learning about what you don’t know. What happens after you’ve improved performance with the low-hanging fruit? How can you and the rest of the team work together to collaboratively find new ways to deliver higher-quality, lower-cost care to your patients, and improve at the fastest pace possible? Staying within the walls of your organization can make an already difficult process even more complex. One of the best ways to get continuous, innovative feedback is to connect with other practicing physicians and surgeons, and find out what analytics they are building to improve performance, then build the analytics for your organization. Oftentimes, conferences are great ways to learn about and leverage these types of new analytics, although literature review is a great secondary source of analytic innovation.
