Repurposing a program evaluation for Parkinson's disease for a healthcare management research study by Justin K Benzer( )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We detail the challenges we experienced in a secondary analysis of program evaluation data. This case study covers how data were initially collected to evaluate a program for Parkinson's disease in the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, and how these data were repurposed for an article focused on healthcare management. We have three sections, organized by learning outcome. The first section details Institutional Review Board issues in planning the research. The second section details survey development for the program evaluation and the challenges encountered regarding designing the survey for a vulnerable patient population. The third section details how a new study was designed from secondary analysis of these data. We discuss how we developed our framework of switching behavior to re-conceptualize the survey data, as well as administrative data that we collected to supplement analyses, and how we decided to use the survey and administrative database measures over different time periods. This case study is most useful for fellows and graduate students who are considering repurposing data for new analyses

What Works in Readmissions Reduction( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Background: Hospitals across the United States are pursuing strategies to reduce avoidable readmissions but the evidence on how best to accomplish this goal is mixed, with no specific clinical practice shown to reduce readmissions consistently. Changes to hospital organizational practices, a key component of context, also may be critical to improving performance on readmissions, but this has not been studied. Objective: The aim of this study was to understand how high-performing hospitals improved risk-stratified readmission rates, and whether their changes to clinical practices and organizational practices differed from low-performing hospitals. Design: This was a qualitative study of 10 hospitals in which readmission rates had decreased (n=7) or increased (n=3). Participants: A total of 82 hospital staff drawn from hospitals that had participated in the State Action on Avoidable Readmissions quality improvement initiative. Results: High-performing hospitals were distinguished by several organizational practices that facilitated readmissions reduction, that is, collective habits of action or interpretation shared by organization members. First, high-performing hospitals reported focused efforts to improve collaboration across hospital departments. Second, they helped postacute providers improve care by sharing the hospital's clinical and quality improvement expertise and data. Third, high performers enthusiastically engaged in trial and error learning to reduce readmissions. Fourth, they emphasized that readmissions represented bad outcomes for patients, de-emphasizing the role of financial penalties. Both high-performing and low-performing hospitals had implemented most clinical practice changes commonly recommended to reduce readmissions. Conclusions: Our findings highlight several organizational practices that hospitals may be able to use to enhance the effectiveness of their readmissions reduction efforts.

Longitudinal Analysis of Quality of Diabetes Care and Relational Climate in Primary Care( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Objective: To assess the influence of relational climate on quality of diabetes care. Data Sources/Study Setting: The study was conducted at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The VA All Employee Survey (AES) was used to measure relational climate. Patient and facility characteristics were gathered from VA administrative datasets. Study Design: Multilevel panel data (2008-2012) with patients nested into clinics. Data Collection/Extraction Methods: Diabetic patients were identified using ICD-9 codes and assigned to the clinic with the highest frequency of primary care visits. Multiple quality indicators were used, including an all-or-none process measure capturing guideline compliance, the actual number of tests and procedures, and three intermediate continuous outcomes (cholesterol, glycated hemoglobin, and blood pressure). Principal Findings: The study sample included 327, 805 patients, 212 primary care clinics, and 101 parent facilities in 2010. Across all study years, there were 1, 568, 180 observations. Clinics with the highest relational climate were 25 percent more likely to provide guideline-compliant care than those with the lowest relational climate (OR for a 1-unit increase: 1.02, p -value <.001). Among insulin-dependent diabetic veterans, this effect was twice as large. Contrary to that expected, relational climate did not influence intermediate outcomes. Conclusions: Relational climate is positively associated with tests and procedures provision, but not with intermediate outcomes of diabetes care
