Strategic measurement of a clinical & translational science institute



The University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) received one of 60+ National Institutes of Health (NIH) Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA). The CTSA program aims to facilitate and accelerate the translation of laboratory discoveries into new and better preventive and treatment solutions to improve health. The UCLA Clnicial & Translational Science Institute (CTSI) is a collaboration of 9 health institutions in Los Angeles County and has 5 key goals that create a common agenda. In order to keep CTSI leaders informed about how the initiative is making progress against goals, data2insight partnered with the CTSI evlauation and tracking team to engage stakeholders in a performance measurement process that identified and defined the key performance measures. We then designed and built the strategic dashboard that included those measures for the leadership team to use as a guide for decision making and action.
