Users now have an option to visualize measure results using our new Stacked Bar graph. This type of visualization is particularly useful when dealing with measures that include multiple segments or ranges, enabling users to discern patterns and trends at a glance.

The advantages of using a Stacked Bar Graph are in its ability to provide a clear visual representation of proportions within a whole, aiding in the understanding of data distribution.

Stacked Bar is visible when values of a measure aggregate to 100

One key feature of the Stacked Bar Graph is that it is only an option when the resulting values of a measure sum to 100.

How to View Stacked Bar Graphs

As a reminder, the Stacked Bar Graph option is shown only where this display option is suitable for a particular measure or measure set.

For this example, we will refer to the “Diabetes with last HbA1c” measure:

  • Navigate to the QI Panel and click on the Disease Management domain.
  • Select the Diabetes subdomain and locate the measure ‘Diabetes with last HbA1c.’
  • Look for the range ‘7.1-8.0%’ and click on it to enter the Single Measure View. To explore further about the Single Measure View, click here.
  • Locate the Graph option on the right side of the window and click on the Stacked Bar option.
  • Your data will now be presented in the stacked bar layout.

The Stacked Bar Graph is a valuable addition to the repertoire of data visualization tools, offering users an insightful means of displaying multiple components of a measure set or when related measures benefit from being viewed together.
