The PIN Benchmarking Project has been collecting data since 2001. PIN Benchmarking consists of measures designed and requested by MT Critical Access Hospital on utilization and operational performance indicators. These data are commonly used for internal reporting and comparison to peer hospitals.
Benchmarking reports are sent to MT CAH QIC on the 15th of every month, QIC’s or the provider contact will have a week to review and change. Final reports will be sent to CAH Leadership the following week via email from the QHi Platform.
Elements are entered into QHi to calculate certain metrics that are then reported out to CAHs via the automatic quarterly report.
IF your facility submits to Databank, we are able to us this data and it doesn’t need to be entered twice. These metrics are noted. If you are unsure of what measures are in Databank or if your facility is an active participant, please reach out to Lindsay ([email protected])
Flex recommends reaching out to the QHi team! They are the experts and very helpful and responsive. Contacts can be found on the home screen after you login. It is also encouraged to attend the monthly training sessions, so that any questions you may have can be answered.
