Project Summary

Mercy will focus its capacity-building funds on establishing a clinical standard governance committee and enhancing current resources and competencies related to execution of evidence-based clinical and operational standards.

A clinical standard governance committee will enable Mercy to identify its focus and manage future HSII implementation projects most efficiently. Additional resources and competencies will increase Mercy’s effectiveness in driving those implementations to improve its service to patients. Mercy’s Office of Clinical Excellence (OCE), led by HSII Project Lead and principal investigator John Mohart, M.D., will drive its capacity-building project. The clinical aspects of capacity building will be led by the Mercy Care Redesign team while overall HSII management will be led by Mercy Research. Both teams are within the OCE.

Mercy’s Office of Transformation, which includes the Enterprise Data and Analytics Office and Project Experience team, will be actively involved in expanding Mercy’s capture, analysis and measurement of data, including additional patient-reported outcomes. With a new clinical standard governance committee and expanded capabilities, Mercy will be ideally positioned to continue its pursuit of a centralized model for care that delivers the right care for the right patient at the right time and in the right place.

About HSII Capacity Building Projects
Funding for HSII Capacity Building Projects was the first funding opportunity available under HSII, to support HSII Participants’ efforts to prepare for successful implementation and program evaluation as part of HSII Implementation Projects. Through HSII, HSII Participants will undertake implementation projects to actively advance the adoption of new evidence, drawn from PCORI-funded research, into their care delivery settings.
