The CALNOC Advantage™

The imperative for quality patient care has never been stronger.

With nursing sensitive indicators and HCAHPS measures directly tied to reimbursement, there will be a direct effect on increasingly sensitive bottom lines for hospitals who must continually respond to new clinical, operational and regulatory demands. This is why more and more hospitals are joining CALNOC and its mission to advance global patient care excellence.

This is the CALNOC Advantage.

Leadership and Innovation

CALNOC (Collaborative Alliance for Nursing Outcomes) has been in the forefront of providing actionable information and research on nursing sensitive indicators to its member hospitals for the past 15 years as the nation’s only nurse sensitive registry managed, operated and designed by nursing. 

CALNOC created the nation’s first database registry of nursing sensitive indicators, transforming staffing, processes of care, and patient outcome data into powerful information to help guide decisions advancing improvement in patient care quality, costs, safety, and outcomes. CALNOC’s registry and reporting combines staffing variables overlaid with nurse sensitive patient variables at the unit level to allow hospitals to benchmark against themselves and other like-sized institutions.

CALNOC contributed to the development of the National Quality Forum (NQF) nurse sensitive metrics and is the measure developer for the NQF Pressure Ulcer and Restraint Use prevalence measures for acute care. CALNOC is also the first to introduce a nursing sensitive medication administration process and outcome safety measure.

Regulatory Compliance & Accreditation

Participation in CALNOC assists hospitals in demonstrating compliance with regulatory, reimbursement, and accreditation requirements. CALNOC is a recognized registry for Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and Joint Commission (TJC) and has been approved for Magnet Qualification.

Best Practices

Using CALNOC, staffing and other costs are lowered while quality and access to the highest quality care through evidence based practices increases. Best practices research looks at top performers and what’s different for them, the structure and processes that help them reach their goals for highly reliable care.

Comprehensive Business Intelligence Reports

Members can gain valuable insights into their performance by Unit, Unit Type, Facility, State and Hospital System and more.
