Infographic describes two different scenarios of treatment of a heart attack. In the first, Door-to-Balloon quality guidelines are met, but in the second, treatment does not occur with 90 minutes. Outcomes are better when NQF measure #0163 Door-to-Balloon is met.
Informational graphic for the NQF Data Initiative. Healthcare needs to improve and it can. Systems approaches have improved care and can address major healthcare challenges. Patients are a largely untapped resource: expand patient-generated data and ensure data are meaningful to patients. Systems improvement requires good data: integrate multiple data sources and provide timely and clinically relevant feedback. Using good data to accelerate progress remains a national challenge: lack of interoperability, too few tools for clinicians to use data, and difficulty scaling up what works best.
