Communicating Findings


Communicating Findings

Communicating the findings of an HPV vaccine QI project to healthcare teams requires attention to data presentation and interpersonal context. Giving healthcare teams feedback on how they are performing throughout the QI process allows for adjustments in practice and can keep people focused on the goal.

Important considerations for communicating data to providers include:

These questions should be answered in collaboration with the healthcare system or clinic leaders. Communicating findings will be important to providers and system leaders because many times incentives are tied to performance.

An effective way to communicate findings is to use a vaccination “report card”. Many healthcare systems already use different forms of score cards or report cards, so this format will be familiar to many providers.

“Again, no one wants to be a poor performer, and everyone wants to be the best, so I think we can use the scorecards to spur individual provider change in order to do some individual provider behavior modification to be like “Okay, it’s worth it for me to do this extra two-minute conversation to go ahead and grab that HPV vaccine while I have that kid here.”

Using the HPVIQ report card

Our report card is found in the resources. You can use this report card to provide regular feedback to clinics and providers. 

You can use IIS or EHR data to complete the report card for clinics or adapt it to report for providers.
