ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Dalana Pittman, Director of Data Abstraction Services
In her role as the Director of Data Abstraction Services, Dalana has been helping quality teams strategically prioritize their most vital resource — the time, brainpower, and focus of their staff. Any amount of time spent staffing and managing data abstraction is time not spent on bigger-picture strategic work like scrutinizing your quality data to identify areas of improvement, designing initiatives to drive change, and monitoring and measuring success. Instead, focus that time you free up on using the data we abstract for bigger, more impactful work that can help you elevate your professional impact on moving your department and organization forward. Prior to joining ADN, Dalana served in multiple roles in the quality department as well as the bedside.
