CORI Excellence Reports Tutorial

Welcome to the Excellence Reports Tutorial. This tutorial demonstrates how to log in; run reports; create, join and manage groups; compare individual, group and national quality measures data; and print results.

Excellence Reports Overview

CORI's quality measure program, Excellence Reports, is available for all consortium members. A link to Excellence Reports is available from the CORI v4 home page. This project was originally funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality to measure quality measures for endoscopy. The Excellence Reports allows practitioners to learn about their performance on selected quality measures, and to benchmark against their group or all CORI users. Current measures are for adult colonoscopy, including average withdrawal time, cecal intubation rate, adequate bowel prep, and polyp detection and removal rates, with more to be added. Provider's data is confidential, and each provider controls who can see their data.

How To Access Your Excellence Reports

After logging into CORI v4, click the "Excellence Reports" link on the Home Page. By default, this secure login allows the user to see individual quality measure information belonging only to them. For CORI v4 users that do not have an endoscopist role, such as a nurse or tech, no individual data is available for display. Any CORI v4 user, even non-endoscopists, can be granted permission to see other's data.

Navigate to the different sections of the Excellence Reports website by clicking on the links at the top right of the webpage. On the Home page, set report parameters; the Sharing page provides controls over who can see your data; and Groups is where the user can create and manage groups of users. Be sure to Logout at the end of your secure session.
