Save the Date 2020: COMPdata User Group Meetings - May 6 in Springfield and May 13 in Naperville

IHA’s COMPdata Informatics is hosting two regional User Group Meetings in May to offer expert insight into its new dashboards. Hospital and health system staff who use COMPdata for analytics and planning are encouraged to attend. The meetings will be held on May 6 in Springfield and May 13 in Naperville.

By attending, you will learn how to leverage these new COMPdata dashboards:

  • Patient Population: Analyze patient counts and occurrences within a defined population;  
  • Readmissions: Learn about your hospital’s readmissions activity and compare to other hospitals;
  • and Chronic Conditions: Analyze chronic conditions defined by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services within hospital visits.
COMPdata experts will discuss developments to the system, including dashboards to assess the impact opioids and cannabis may have on your patients. Users will also have time to share feedback and address data needs.
These meetings will benefit COMPdata subscribers who work in:
  • Strategic development;
  • Quality;
  • Physician relations;
  • Finance;
  • Business intelligence; and
  • Planning. 

COMPdata is the most comprehensive source of healthcare and hospital data for over three decades. We provide hospital data reporting services to more than 300 hospitals, health systems, state hospital associations and state data agencies.
Additional meeting information will be shared in the coming weeks.

NEW  Patient Population Dashboards-10/31/2019

The patient population dashboards are now available for all COMPdata users! The patient population dashboards from IHA’s COMPdata Informatics allow for data analyses by patient counts, a significant addition to the visit/discharge counts currently offered. The recently added dashboards offer a broader view of service utilization by uncovering how many patients account for total visits, such as in the emergency department. This dashboard set will continue to enhance the population health management trend currently experienced by the industry.
To help users further understand the patient population dashboards, the data source used to create the dashboards, and examples of usage, the COMPdata team will be hosting a number of webinar training sessions with the agenda as follows:
