NICU/SCN Dashboard - Coming Soon!

Join us for a noon-hour webinar on November 20th or 29th to learn about this new tool to facilitate improved neonatal care.

New NICU/SCN Dashboard will Go Live on November 22nd, 2018
The NICU/SCN Dashboard was designed to facilitate improved neonatal care by visually indicating evidence-practice gaps related to two selected key performance indicators (KPIs):
1. Rate of primary admissions to NICU/SCN for inborn infants > 35 weeks’ gestation receiving room air as the initial gas used during resuscitation (in the 1st 30 minutes of life).
2. Rate of normal infant temperature (36.5-37.5 C inclusive) for inborn infants on primary admission to NICU/SCN.

The NICU/SCN Dashboard will provide users with: 1) near real-time feedback, with site-specific and peer comparison data for each KPI; 2) a signal or visual display indicating an evidence-practice gap related to the KPIs; and 3) benchmarks to provide direction for practice change where improvement is needed. The ultimate goal of the NICU/SCN Dashboard is to decrease variability in care processes, promote best practice, and improve neonatal outcomes.
