Identify the right data to make an impact: It’s important to not just collect data for data collection’s sake. Especially in a pandemic, it’s important to focus on the data elements that will truly make a difference. MHA is focused on providing reports on ICU and medical surgical bed capacity to hospital executives. It’s critical to identify the data that’s meaningful and provide that in concise reports to the right leaders, while omitting anything that will just be noise.
