AARC Benchmarking System

AARC’s Benchmarking System will help you:

  • Provide accurate data to support administrative decisions
  • Identify and promote best professional practices
  • Address manager dissatisfaction with other proprietary systems

As a Benchmarking subscriber, you will be able to define your own compare groups to assess how you really stack up against similar hospitals, as well as gain access to the other performance metrics.

Through your personal computer, the AARC’s web-based benchmarking system allows you to compare your performance on key metrics with other respiratory therapy departments.

You choose:

  • Your comparison groups
  • Your own performance targets
  • Hospitals whose operational characteristics and demography match yours
  • When to enter data and generate reports

You can:

  • View detailed demographic profiles or all participating hospitals
  • Exchange information with other participating department directors via a private listserve
  • Receive personal support using the system
  • Access benchmarking educational materials
