Does Size of Department Matter?
   Good News! Smaller LHDs can demonstrate
    standards at same level as large LHDs
   ―Money (and staff) matter, but they aren’t all that
    matters‖ (Joan Brewster)
   In Washington, 40% of the higher performers in the
    2008 review cycle were smaller LHDs (less than 2
    million annual budget). A couple of higher
    performers were LHDs with annual budgets of
    approximately $600,000

MCPP Healthcare Consulting
Correlation of Budget & FTEs
   Relationship of budget and FTEs to overall
    performance in the Standards is nearing random
    (little or no correlation)
   Five non-urban LHJs with budgets of $2 million or
    less had > 60% demonstrated
   There is variability not connected to budget or size,
    other drivers of high performance are local
    priority-setting; leadership; local funding; staff skill,
    training and experience; and documentation and
    data systems

QI Activities - TPCHD
   Critical to make data/reporting meaningful to staff.
   Performance measures:
     More  is not better
     Resource level declines after the first data reporting
     Staff need lots of practice/training to develop good
      performance measures
   RCI/QI projects:
     Quality    planning is more appropriate than QI for some
        projects with long-term outcomes
