Product Information
Abstract: 

The Clinical Informatics Consult Service (CICS) is a program offered by the Knowledge Management/Eskind Biomedical Library (KM/EBL) team at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Highly trained librarians functioning as knowledge management experts answer physicians’ complex, patient-specific clinical questions. The knowledge management specialists have developed filtered synthesized packets of selected research topics based on available evidence-based literature resources. 

Additional information/Special implementation requirements or guidelines: 

These filtered, evidence-based literature summaries, developed in response to the clinical questions posed by physicians and clinical teams, consist of:

  1. a concise statement on the current state of the research literature, including all available viewpoints, conflicting study results, and limitations;
  2. paragraph or tabular summaries of individual studies selected and reviewed for their quality, strength or representation of the research evidence, with links to the full text of the articles when available;
  3. expert search strategies used to retrieve relevant literature; and
  4. additional readings that may include practice guidelines or related research pertinent to the clinician’s question.

The literature summaries are made available through the Geriatrics Digital Library, a portal created by the Knowledge Management team to provide immediate ubiquitous access to a valuable collection of online information resources for geriatrics education, research, and patient care. Currently 61 geriatrics-related literature summaries with links to the full text of the cited articles are available in the KM/EBL Geriatrics Digital Library (GDL).

The Healthcare Matrix: Improving Care by Linking Outcomes to Competencies

:  
Date Posted:

Date Reviewed/Updated for Clinical Accuracy: 
12/31/1969
Product Information
Abstract: 

The Healthcare Matrix is currently a Word document, but will soon have a web-based interface attached to a database. The 36-cell Matrix has one cell to represent each intersection of an IOM Aim for Improvement (identified in the IOM report, crossing the Quality Chasm) with an ACGME Core Competency. This tool provides learners with a structured framework to analyze complex episodes of patient care in terms of the Aims and Competencies. The individual cells of the Matrix allow the care analysis to be segmented into more manageable parts. By associating the Aims for Improvement with the Core Competencies, The Matrix encourages learners to reflect on the care they provide and determine the improvements needed, while helping them learn and apply the Aims and Competencies. If learners cannot identify issues in the bottom line of the Matrix-practice-based learning and improvement--then they have not sufficiently analyzed the care. Learners may then use this information to develop action plans that improve care from an individual -- and systems-perspective so that they experience first-hand the 'Practice-Based Learning & Improvement' Core competency.

Educational objectives: 

1. To offer schools a way to meet Phase III of the ACGME Outcomes Project by presenting an educational tool that links the outcomes of care to the ACGME Core competencies. 2. To encourage learners to associate their education (beyond medical knowledge with the care of their patients.) 3. To guide learners in analyzing the care of their own patients by using the Core competencies to identification of opportunities for improvement. 4. To change the environment of case presentations and M&M conferences from one of blame to one of system analysis and quality improvement.
