The US healthcare system produces some of the best health outcomes in the world, but the quality of care is inconsistent. To improve patient care, CMS has mandated several quality measurement initiatives including Star ratings and NCQA HEDIS®1 measures. But the reporting requirements for these programs can be exceptionally resource-intensive — and the consequences of lower quality scores can be dramatic for payer organizations and their members.
So, what’s a payer to do?
Expert leadership at Verinovum — a powerhouse in curating high-quality healthcare data — will join with Envision Health to present the webinar “Simplifying Your Quality-of-Care Equation with Usable Clinical Data” on Tuesday, June 28, from 1-1:45 p.m. EDT.
Centering the discussion around balancing quality protocols with resource-intensive reporting processes, webinar hosts will examine how health plans can utilize a combination of clinical data curation and analytic tools to better understand their members’ health needs and, ultimately, improve care and outcomes.
Verinovum Chief Medical Information Officer Mureen Allen, MD, MS, MA, FACP, and Envision Health Senior Technical Writer, Jill Pritts, MSc, will discuss data curation strategies that can help payers achieve the Quadruple Aim’s goals of improved clinician experience, improved patient experience, better outcomes, and lower costs.
They will answer questions like:
- How are evolving strategies and policies around interoperability being implemented to improve clinical data aggregation and sharing?
- How does clinical data quality impact the quality-of-care equation?
- What are the data challenges around improving contracting and value-based care, and how can you solve them
- What kind of impact can timely care and disease management intervention have on your membership?
- What can organizations do now to advance their quest to achieve the Quadruple Aim?
