Accelerate PI Dashboard Reports available for 2Q 2021

July 8, 2021

The Joint Commission announced new Accelerate PI Dashboard Reports that are available for Joint Commission-accredited hospitals, critical access hospitals, long-term care hospitals, home care settings, inpatient psychiatric facilities, and inpatient rehabilitation facilities. 

The reports, which are available on the organization’s Joint Commission Connect extranet site under the Resources and Tools section, reflect the most recent and available external data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Compare website. In addition, chart-abstracted and electronic clinical quality measure (eCQM) quality measurement data reported by hospitals to The Joint Commission under the ORYX program have been refreshed with the most recent quarter of data. 

Accelerate PI Dashboard Reports represent an organization’s relative performance on each of the selected measures. For each measure, the dashboard shows the organization’s performance compared to various benchmarks. The dashboard is not scored during survey; rather, it is a tool to facilitate discussion about ongoing quality improvement work. For example, surveyors may ask how an organization addresses the subset of performance measures in the report and what action(s) it is taking to improve processes.
