Magellan Group partners, Greg & Marta Hiczewski, participated in the Data-Informed Decision-Making education session sponsored by the Finger Lakes Performing Provider System  and the United Way of Greater Rochester. The session is part of the pilot program to prepare Community Based Organizations for value-based reimbursement by building internal capacity and focusing on outcomes. Executive staff and board members from Ibero-American Action League and Wyoming County Community Action Program attended.

Presenters from United Way of Rochester, FLPPS and Children’s Institute shared a process for identifying health outcomes and supportive data to inform decisions with confidence and certainty by leveraging internally collected evidence. Often non-profits are required to enter information into proprietary funder databases, which makes it difficult for agency leadership to extract data and aggregate it across the organization.

Independent, internally collected evidence is important in demonstrating the impact of program outcomes and the value an agency creates for clients and payors.  The development Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) by program service line and the agency provide measurements of efficiency and effectiveness.
