Target-setting method

Percent improvement

Target-setting method details
10 percent improvement from the baseline.
Target-setting method justification
Trend data were not available for this objective. A 10 percent improvement from the baseline was used to calculate a target. This method was used because the target was a statistically significant improvement from the baseline. The target represents a notable improvement in the mean score and appreciates recent trends in the individual metrics within the composite score.
