Create an 8—10-slide PowerPoint presentation about the statistical findings with recommendations to health system leadership, as well as a 2—4-page executive summary that adds context to the data analysis results.
A vital skill for health care administrators is the ability to translate analytic results into clear, concise, and actionable results. Managers are frequently required to formally present statistical results to leadership because decision making is becoming increasingly data-driven and evidence-based. Decision makers’ comprehension of the information being delivered varies from time to time. As a health care professional, it is your responsibility to know how to distill and synthesize data analytics and present complex concepts in the pursuit of value, quality, and safety. You must be able to communicate the results of your team’s data analysis in a clear and informative manner. How well the results of that analysis are articulated can have a significant impact on how much your work is valued. The value of your analytic work can be greatly increased by effectively communicating the results so that the issues and recommendations are clear and explicit.
