In May 2019, the Stanford Health Care Nursing Quality team were awarded the Integrated Strategic Planning (ISP) Star Award during the Stanford Medicine Integrated Strategic Planning Retreat celebrated across the enterprise. The award was granted in recognition of excellence demonstrated through Stanford’s three strategic initiatives: value focused, digitally driven, and uniquely Stanford. The Nursing Quality team were recognized for the consistent effort and oversight in the development and re-design of Epic nursing documentation, as well as documentation features that help support clinical decision making, improve usability and capture data for improvement efforts.
Additionally, the team provides support to front-line nurses in analyzing and visualizing clinical and performance data. This data was disseminated to clinical nurses through Shared Leadership Council, nursing educators, and nurse managers, as well as other leaders across the organization, for use in both performance and practice improvement. The team was also recognized for their role in serving as a connector to vital resources for nursing and ensuring that performance improvement efforts were aligned with Stanford Health Care’s strategic priorities.
