DACEB Internal Strategies

• Document and streamline internal processes • Partner with Rajesh’s IT team in system improvements & reports • Develop & implement medical mortality data quality assessment program • Develop additional data quality assessment tools • Complete restructuring efforts • Increase effective communication and teamwork • Identify improvements to communication and collaboration with jurisdictions

Collaboration with Jurisdictions

• Through

Vital Statistics Improvement Project with NAPHSIS

• Technical Assistance is available! • Coordination of Corrective Action Plans • Communications • Timely feedback to jurisdictions • Communication of our closeout dates – we need your help!

• Let us know how we are doing!

• Reengage around Corrective Action Plans • Intent is to help jurisdictions meet contract deliverables • Rethinking annual meeting VSCP requirement

Reasons for CAPs

• Revisions – 5 not revised for natality; 9 not revised for death; 13 not revised for fetal death • STEVE certification – fully implemented by fewer than half of the jurisdictions. Affects our production timelines • Lack of quality assurance program • Ongoing timeliness • Contract closeout timeliness – Most cannot meet the contract deliverables

CAP Process

• Over the coming months, DACEB will be initiating CAP requests/updates for jurisdictions out of compliance with one or more items.

• CAPs will be submitted to Larry Nielsen at NAPHSIS for review, with final versions to your DACEB team (Vital Statistics Specialist, Statistician and Medical Specialist), with a copy to me and Larry.

• Format for the plan and updates will be specified in the request.

• Quarterly updates expected, with some exceptions.

Focus is on improvements, not punishment! Larry, my staff and I are available to help brainstorm strategies for CAPs.

If you know you will need a CAP or update, please reach out to us!

Annual In-person Meetings

• Travel budget cut – Opportunity to improve annual meetings • Feedback • Meetings too short to be helpful • • Reports provided at the meeting provide no additional information than what is available on VSCP web site Would rather engage in problem solving • One Alternative Plan •

Your feedback needed!

Facilitated group sessions, based on contract deliverables, e.g., revisions, STEVE, timeliness, quality • • Focus on discussing barriers and sharing solutions Jurisdictions with success in an area provide success stories to others struggling

Your feedback requested

• Barriers to meeting timelines and ongoing updates • Our communication and how we can improve • How we can help through the CAP process – what wording will help you get what you need in your jurisdiction?

• What would best serve you in an in-person meeting?

Call me with your ideas or if I can be helpful!
