04/23/2019 - 04/23/2019 Webinar | Healthcare InnovationMore Information
Dean Sittig, PhD and Professor at the University of Texas School of Biomedical Informatics in the Health Science Center at Houston, and John D’Amore MS, President and Chief Strategy Officer at Diameter Health discuss how private and government payers are increasingly incorporating quality outcomes in their contracts.
Value-based payment for care requires consistent, objective calculation of care quality. Previous initiatives to calculate ambulatory quality measures have relied on billing data or individual electronic health records (EHRs) to calculate and report performance. New methods for quality measure calculation open new approaches to how quality can be calculated and shared among payers and providers.
