At the beginning of March, as the global pandemic was spreading like wildfire in one of the largest COVID hotspots in the US, it became apparent that we needed to quickly provide valuable data and insights to Stamford Health leaders and colleagues to manage and treat COVID patients. Our incredible Analytics & Innovation team worked with senior leaders, IS, and peers from across the organization to develop workflows and a comprehensive dashboard in record time. The dashboard not only included metrics about patients testing positive for COVID, but also metrics to track bed capacity, daily census, PPE, local growth rates, discharge metrics, demographic rates, oxygen usage, and employee health and screening. In addition, the dashboard included metrics for our National Guard task force that was deployed to help in the treatment and recovery of COVID patients. We were honored to receive a Military Commanders coin by the National Guard for this effort, making the dashboard award-winning (literally). Attendees will value learning from our experience as being a community hospital in the middle of a hot spot during the pandemic. Using Lean tools we were able to achieve greater speed in service to our patients/community (our customer). One of our customers were also the Joint Military Task Force as well as the State of CT Governor's Office, CT Hospital Association, and NHSN (National Healthcare Safety Network).
