In today’s healthcare environment, performance measurement is becoming more important to policy makers and clinicians. Performance measures demonstrate the value of health services provided, and are becoming increasingly significant as results will be used for reimbursement and to ensure quality while controlling healthcare costs.
But measures and the process of measurement can be confusing. What are performance measures and why should we measure? How are they calculated? What are the different types of measures and how are they selected for use in URAC accreditation programs?
Join the Quality, Research and Measurement team at URAC for this 90-minute webinar that will demystify measures, and give you a solid understanding of what they are and why it’s important to measure. You will discover:
