Why Benchmark?

How does your facility measure up? If you can’t answer this, then you should be entering your projects into CII’s Health Care Benchmarking database! This program gives users an edge over their competition. Currently, companies like Kaiser Permanente, HKS, Boldt, U.S. Department of Veteran’s Affairs, Cannon Design, U.S. Department of Defense Military Health System, McCarthy and many others are using this credible and validated national database to compare their capital facilities projects to the rest of the industry.
 
This one-of-a-kind tool is used to obtain quantitative information to support decision-making on the front end of a project. Why benchmark your projects? Benchmarking provides unparalleled information for most types of health care facilities regarding project performance, programming, and use of best practices. We want this to be the most robust information available to our industry – that means we need you to enter your projects too! Please check out the Health Care Benchmarking website to learn how: www.healthcarebenchmarking.org
 
So why should you benchmark your projects? Here’s a few reasons:
  • Unparalleled information for most types of health care facilities regarding project performance, programming, and use of best practices.
  • Zero Cost. The government agencies funding this program have the objective of improving health care in the U.S. As a result, participation is available to any health care organizations at no direct cost. 
  • Continuous Improvement. Access to quantitative project information helps answer the following questions:
    1. What are the hallmarks of a successful project?
    2. How does my project performance compare to that of industry leaders?
    3. What are the most critical areas to address in order to improve my future projects?
  • Comprehensive industry analysis and trend information, contained in the Benchmarking Summary Report, 2011-2013.
  • Access to non-biased, credible, up to date industry information through external benchmarking data to help speed up the decision making process
  • A scorecard to access internal strengths and weaknesses against the rest of the industry for continuous improvement
  • Benchmark both on a project and program level
