Advancing Quality Through Consequential Measures

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Health care providers can find some degree of security in the knowledge that the tools for achieving improvements remain grounded in stable fundamentals. Quality measures that support your mission while providing superior care and cutting costs are the key to improving quality.

Performance measurement isn't just for health plans. Physicians are increasingly participating in performance measurement activities, especially in the context of pay-for-performance initiatives that are taking shape across the country. Measurement at all levels of the system is fast becoming the norm in health care.

At the conclusion of the activity, attendees will be able to:
• Identify cross-cutting measures that drive improvement
• Recognize the link between routine patient care and quality improvement
• Define the challenges and possibilities of measure development
