Abstract

Nurse-sensitive indicator (NSI) performance is important for Magnet Designation and has financial reimbursement implications for health care organizations. In this article, we describe a centralized NSI management initiative to facilitate analysis and response to NSI performance measures. The initiative resulted in a 100% increase in performance improvement activity and a 4% increase in overall NSI performance. These outcomes support organizational efforts to optimize reimbursement and achieve Magnet designation.
