Innovations in Pressure Injury Reporting: Creating Actionable Data for Improvement

Academic Article

Abstract

  • © National Association for Healthcare Quality. This department column highlights translation of research into health care quality practice. Achieving the highest quality of health care requires attention to developing and sustaining process efficiencies, and a thorough understanding of data and reporting. Mitigating or eliminating harm from pressure injuries may be more quickly achieved when accurate and consistent data are available for creating actionable interventions. The three aims of this project were to (1) confirm internally reported hospital acquired pressure injury data, (2) identify opportunities for improving the accuracy of internal reports, and (3) design and implement innovative quality informatics solutions for pressure injury reporting.
