The Measurement of Organizational Performance : 

The Measurement of Organizational Performance Performance is measured in all addiction treatment settings How helpful is performance data? Does data drive organizational vision? Does data drive organizational decision-making?

The Limitations of Outcomes : 

The Limitations of Outcomes A thermometer reading would be of no value as a measure of your health… If you didn't know that 98.6 is the “average” temperature!

The Limitations of Outcomes in Your Organization : 

The Limitations of Outcomes in Your Organization Similarly, knowing that your missed appointment rate is 27% is of little value in evaluating the health of your agency…if you don’t know how others are performing

Data without Meaning : 

Data without Meaning We are deluged with data without meaning Data without a context is just a bunch of numbers What is the answer?

The Role of Benchmarking : 

The Role of Benchmarking Benchmarks provide the vital external context for understanding your outcomes

Benchmarking Defined : 

Benchmarking Defined Gift and Mosel (1994) define benchmarking as “the continual and collaborative discipline of measuring and comparing the results of key work processes” Gift, R. and Mosel, D. (1994). Benchmarking in Health Care, American Hospital Association

A Tiered Model of Benchmarking : 

A Tiered Model of Benchmarking Descriptive Benchmarking Comparative Benchmarking Process Benchmarking Each builds on the preceding type

Descriptive Benchmarking : 

Descriptive Benchmarking Most common form of benchmarking Industry overviews, government reports Static snapshot of industry performance No formal or statistical comparisons between an organization’s performance and industry norms “Eyeball analysis” can be misleading

Comparative Benchmarking : 

Comparative Benchmarking Formal comparison of an organization’s performance against a descriptive benchmark Typically reported as percentile rankings but can be reported in graph form also

The Importance of Formal Comparative Benchmarks : 

The Importance of Formal Comparative Benchmarks

Comparative Benchmarking in Your Daily Life : 

Comparative Benchmarking in Your Daily Life What examples of comparative benchmarking have you encountered in your own day-to-day activities?

Important Benchmarking Concepts : 

Important Benchmarking Concepts Benchmarking differs from formalized research or laboratory science Benchmarking views data as a vehicle rather than a destination Benchmarking generates ideas and hypotheses---not answers Benchmarking is a communal activity

Benchmarking as an Impetus to Action : 

Benchmarking as an Impetus to Action Human nature gives benchmarked data its power Raw data tells no stories Benchmarked data draws comparisons Nobody wants to “bring up the rear” Benchmarked data prompts action

The Limitations of Benchmarking : 

The Limitations of Benchmarking Benchmarks profile your organization against others and help identify opportunities for improvement

Improve? How? : 

Improve? How? Benchmarks do not give any indication as to how to improve

The “How”: Process Benchmarking : 

The “How”: Process Benchmarking Based on a simple premise: The methods of top performers differ from those of others Process benchmarking systematically compares tactics of top performers with those of others Methods that distinguish between top performers and others may be regarded as potential best practices

Process Benchmarking Methodology : 

Process Benchmarking Methodology Typically performed in workshop settings Guide to Participation distributed in advance to allow participants to respond to questions that will be posed about methods used Audience polling technology used to permit anonymous involvement and immediate analysis of data

Surprises Abound : 

Surprises Abound What is expected usually does not materialize Top performers do not know why they perform well Subtle factors often prove to be powerful

ProcessBenchmarking In Action : 

ProcessBenchmarking In Action The identification of “best practices”

Internal Benchmarking : 

Internal Benchmarking All concepts also apply to internal benchmarking Descriptive, comparative or process benchmarking can be conducted within an organization Examples of internal comparative benchmarks: Productivity differences among staff Access differences among locations Unit cost differences among programs Staff satisfaction differences among leaders

Benchmarks: Where are They? : 

Benchmarks: Where are They? Readily accessible, relevant and affordable comparative benchmarking data is hard to come by

Benchmarking for Organizational Excellence in Addiction Treatment : 

Benchmarking for Organizational Excellence in Addiction Treatment SAAS, NIATx, and Behavioral Pathway Systems are partnering to sponsor an addiction-specific national benchmarking initiative BPS specializes in behavioral health and human services benchmarking and has numerous state and national benchmarking initiatives underway

Objectives of Benchmarking Initiative : 

Objectives of Benchmarking Initiative Provide SAAS with information it needs to advocate for its members Provide participating organizations with individualized comparative benchmark data that can serve as a vital context for understanding measured outcomes Provide a powerful vehicle for the identification of best practices and organizational improvement through process benchmarking and the application of NIATx principles

Benchmark Selection Process : 

Benchmark Selection Process National interest survey conducted Interest Availability of Data 354 respondents Survey findings guided Steering Committee decisions

Scope of Benchmarks : 

Scope of Benchmarks Comprehensive range of benchmarks Operational, clinical, organizational climate, and financial domains of performance 21 benchmark dimensions Approximately 150 input metrics

Operational Benchmarks : 

Operational Benchmarks Initial Access Length of Stay/Utilization, by Level of Care Subsequent Access (Number of days from intake to first treatment appt) Average Caseload Size of Clinician, by Level of Care Outpatient Productivity Average Group Size

Clinical Benchmarks : 

Clinical Benchmarks Engagement/Retention, by Level of Care Outpatient No-Show/Cancellation Rates Client Satisfaction/Perceptions of Care Degree of Engagement with Recovery Support Services Involvement of Significant Others
