[3624] Actionable VBP Business Intelligence Dashboards: Understanding and Taking Action on KPIs That Lead to Success
This presentation is a must for those wishing to streamline their operations and achieve VBP financial success. Presentation Info: TAHC&H Winter Conference 2022 | Dallas | Recorded for On-Demand Access Presentation Date | February 24, 2022 Program Description: Information overload describes the excess of information available to a person aiming to complete a task or make a decision; resulting in a poor decision or no decision being made.

Metrics should be easy to understand and lead operators to implement corrective action concurrently. Thus, turning a possible negative outcome into a positive one.
