The Johns Hopkins Medicine Patient Safety and Quality Dashboard is an interactive tool to help employees assess their area's performance on goals to improve the safety, quality and experience of care we deliver to our patients. Use the dashboard to find out things such as how your patients rate their experience and how often your team follows standardized best practices of care to prevent infection and other complications.
The dashboard currently features inpatient data for each of the five Johns Hopkins Health System hospitals in the Maryland/D.C. area in four key areas:
- Core Measures
- Rates of ICU central line-associated bloodstream infections
- Hand Hygiene Compliance
- Patient Experience of Care survey results
Learn how Johns Hopkins employees will use the dashboard to drive improvement efforts.
