Ascension Wisconsin Library Services Literature Search Survey Annual Report - 2016

By Michele Matucheski, MLS, AHIP,  Librarian for Ascension Wisconsin

In 2015, Ministry Health Care Librarians began collecting feedback on the research (literature searches) we provided to our patrons.  This survey data was saved to a QuickBase App where we could compile and present the data visually.

After the Ascension Wisconsin merger in 2016, this QuickBase App was opened up to the newly formed Ascension Wisconsin Library Services Department, allowing 3 more Librarians to invite their respective customers to fill out evaluations on the quality and impacts of the research provided.  This feedback helps us understand how that research was used system-wide.

This report shows the impact Library Services has on Ascension Wisconsin’s  Quadruple Aim :
1)      Delivering high quality care
2)      Better patient and
3)      provider experiences and
4)      lowering overall costs

The word cloud above illustrates just SOME of the research projects that your Librarians have worked on in 2016.
Research demonstrates that Librarian-led information services improve clinical decision making and patient care outcomes. Library Services and quality health information can
  • Reduce hospital costs,  length of stay
  • Prevent Hospital Readmissions
  • Improve diagnosis, patient care outcomes and clinical decision making
  • Further their institution's mission and goals through expert searches, teaching health professional literature searching skills, providing community outreach programs, supporting innovation and research, and disseminating the best medical and business practice information.
  • Contribute to a culture of inquiry and quality improvement by teaching nurses, physicians and staff information literacy and  literature searching skills
  • Help avoid adverse events
  • Save health professionals' time

 The report includes :
