SAFER Dashboard launches for all Joint Commission accreditation programs
On April 6, The Joint Commission launched the SAFER® Dashboard for all its accredited health care organizations. The dashboard is a self-serve data analytic tool that allows organizations to view all their survey data and Joint Commission national comparison data in one place.
The dashboard is accessible on an organization’s Joint Commission Connect® extranet site. Initial access will be given to the chief executive officer, primary accreditation contact, and primary laboratory contact (if applicable). Security administrators in the organization may grant access to additional users as needed.
All information contained in the Final Accreditation Report is available on the SAFER Dashboard. The dashboard will include all survey data (such as triennial surveys or for-cause surveys) for all accreditation programs (excluding certification program data). Users can view aggregate historical accreditation data, new survey finding data, and comparison data to help identify patterns and trends to prioritize improvement initiatives.
The development of the SAFER Dashboard has been an incremental process rooted in extensive customer feedback and collaboration. Phase 1 implementation provided the dashboard to a subset of health care organizations, which allowed The Joint Commission to gain valuable insights for further expansion. This collaboration has facilitated enhancements to deliver meaningful and useful data in a user-friendly format that is now available out to all Joint Commission-accredited organizations.
The April 6 launch included an enhancement made from the Phase 1 feedback, as the dashboard now will include Joint Commission national comparison data. This includes all surveys conducted by The Joint Commission in a designated time frame, based on organizations’ accredited programs. Organizations will have the ability to access national aggregate SAFER Matrix comparison data, as well as view and compare the national Top 10 most frequently scored standards and elements of performance.
For Joint committed accredited organizations, questions about the SAFER Dashboard may be directed to the organization’s designated account executive. Not Joint commission accredited yet?
