DACEB Internal Strategies
•
Document and streamline internal processes
•
Partner with Rajesh’s IT team in system improvements & reports
•
Develop & implement medical mortality data quality assessment program
•
Develop additional data quality assessment tools
•
Complete restructuring efforts
•
Increase effective communication and teamwork
•
Identify improvements to communication and collaboration with
jurisdictions
Collaboration with Jurisdictions
•
Through Vital Statistics Improvement Project with NAPHSIS
•
•
•
Communications
•
•
•
•
Timely feedback to jurisdictions
Communication of our closeout dates – we need your help!
Let us know how we are doing!
Reengage around Corrective Action Plans
•
•
Technical Assistance is available!
Coordination of Corrective Action Plans
Intent is to help jurisdictions meet contract deliverables
Rethinking annual meeting VSCP requirement
Reasons for CAPs
• Revisions – 5 not revised for natality; 9 not revised for death; 13
not revised for fetal death
• STEVE certification – fully implemented by fewer than half of
the jurisdictions. Affects our production timelines
• Lack of quality assurance program
• Ongoing timeliness
• Contract closeout timeliness – Most cannot meet the contract
deliverables
CAP Process
Over the coming months, DACEB will be initiating CAP requests/updates
for jurisdictions out of compliance with one or more items.
• CAPs will be submitted to Larry Nielsen at NAPHSIS for review, with final
versions to your DACEB team (Vital Statistics Specialist, Statistician and
Medical Specialist), with a copy to me and Larry.
• Format for the plan and updates will be specified in the request.
• Quarterly updates expected, with some exceptions.
•
Focus is on improvements, not punishment! Larry, my staff and I are available to
help brainstorm strategies for CAPs.
If you know you will need a CAP or update, please reach out to us!
Annual In-person Meetings
•
Travel budget cut – Opportunity to improve annual meetings
•
Feedback
• Meetings too short to be helpful
• Reports provided at the meeting provide no additional information than what is
available on VSCP web site
• Would rather engage in problem solving
•
One Alternative Plan - Your feedback needed!
• Facilitated group sessions, based on contract deliverables, e.g., revisions,
STEVE, timeliness, quality
• Focus on discussing barriers and sharing solutions
• Jurisdictions with success in an area provide success stories to others struggling
Your feedback requested
•
Barriers to meeting timelines and ongoing updates
•
Our communication and how we can improve
•
How we can help through the CAP process – what wording will help you get
what you need in your jurisdiction?
•
What would best serve you in an in-person meeting?
Call me with your ideas or if I can be helpful!
