Quality measurement in healthcare is critical to evaluating performance and improving healthcare quality. More than just a concept, quality of care is becoming increasingly important as the healthcare industry shifts to value-based reimbursement models. The measures process may pinpoint problem areas, identify what’s working well, drive improvements in healthcare and, ultimately, play a large role in how an organization is reimbursed.
But measures and the process of measurement can be quite confusing. There are different types of measures, different uses for the different measure types, pros and cons associated with each. With so much at stake, how do you know if you are doing it right?
This full-day event, Mastering Pharmacy Quality Measures Workshop, is designed to give you a solid understanding of the measures and measures process. It’s not enough to just know how to collect and report on measures – you need to explore the history and trends of quality and patient safety, measures and measurement development, and management’s role in quality management of products and services.
In this information-packed workshop, you will:
Master the difference between performance measures, performance measurement and performance management
Know how to decipher a measure specification and calculate a measure
Understand the pros and cons associated with the different measures types
Learn how to interpret results of a measure
Uncover when to use a measure type in which situation
Learn when risk adjustment is necessary (and what risk adjustment means)
Get a behind-the-scenes look at what happens at URAC when data is received (including real-life examples of mistakes/errors in the data)
And much, much more.
You don’t have to be a statistician to master measures for your organization. Don’t miss this opportunity to participate in this hands-on workshop to get a solid understanding of measures and how the measurement process can bring value to your organization.
