Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center's new wiki was built to help the multiple organizational units -- including IT, clinical effectiveness, research informatics, and the decision support group within finance -- all have roles in creating and managing outcome measures within the pediatric hospital. Cincinnati Children's new DataWiki, built on the open-source MediaWiki platform, allows analysts from all the organizational units to store definitions for the measurements, such as which age ranges, diagnoses and treatment types are included in each measurement. The wiki also stores links to the evidence for outcome measures and evaluation recommendations, screen shots of the actual e-medical record screens that clinicians use to input the data, technical descriptions of where the data lives in both the source EMR database and the division specific data marts, and more. With the wiki, static information that was previously stored in multiple locations is now centrally located. This allows information to be dynamic, so that analysts across multiple organizational units can edit and add to the data. The information is also linkable and searchable and helps us provide consistent and reliable measurements across Cincinnati Children's.

Overall InformationWeek 500 ranking: 13
