Data for Hospital Operations or Quality Improvement Projects

As a general rule if the intent of your project is either clinical operations improvement or clinical quality improvement, you should be getting your data from the clinical reporting team of the associated hospital.

However in some cases the clinical reporting team requests SCCI’s involvement in a case, typically when the project seems to be in a grey area spanning quality improvement and research.

When asked by your hospital’s clinical reporting team to supply you with data, we are happy to do so. But the request must come to us from the appropriate Operations/Quality program leadership at the hospital. We are not in a position to accept an investigator’s assertion that the project does not constitute research, we look to either the IRB or the appropriate Hospital decision-makers to make this determination.

Once we receive an official request from the QI or Operations department of either SHC or Packard to supply you with data for a quality or operations improvement project, there is one more step you must take:

Complete your Obligations Attestation

Before we supply you with any data in support of clinical quality or operational improvement you need to agree to a set of obligations regarding data privacy and security.

 

 

As a courtesy to our consultation service team you will be prompted for the pertinent SCCI Case Number to complete this form; this is so we can record the fact that we either released data to you or formally authorized others to release  data.

If you are already in contact with SCCI your case number typically appears in the subject line of the email. If you are not yet in contact with SCCI you can reach us using this online consultation request form.
