The OIG has released a report from an event it cosponsored with the Health Care Compliance Association (HCCA) in November 2008 on “Driving for Quality in Acute Care: A Board of Directors Dashboard," the sixth roundtable collaboration between OIG and HCCA. Participants at the government-industry roundtable included representatives from hospital systems, trade associations, and government. The meeting focused on how hospital boards of directors can use information dashboards, or scorecards, as a tool to promote quality of care in their institutions. The discussions included information on best practices for tracking measures of quality, safety, customer satisfaction, and financial and employee performance. Participants also offered suggestions for increasing accountability for quality outcomes and stressed the importance of promoting transparency of quality of care information.
