RHC Performance Measurement and Quality Improvement

Event Details
Wednesday, August 3, 2022
1:00pm CST

There are many terms that are used in reference to improving clinical and non-clinical outcomes in a health care facility. Quality improvement, continuous quality improvement (CQI), quality assessment, quality assurance, and performance improvement are just a few. Regardless of the term used, in today's health care landscape, primary care practice's quality-related activities are imperative to achieve the Triple Aim: 

  1. Improve the health of the population;
  2. Enhance patient experiences and outcomes; and
  3. Reduce the cost of care.

RHCs are not exempt from the impact of national efforts to create a high-value health care system, despite no implicit program requirement from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in the Conditions of Participation for RHCs. This one-hour webinar will explore performance measurement and quality improvement within an RHC setting with practical application tips to ensure forward momentum toward value. 

Speaker: Tammy Norville, NOSORH

  • Describe current RHC requirements from the RHC Conditions of Participation related to performance measurement and quality improvement

  • Identify activities to consider when developing and administering program evaluation and other performance measurement and quality improvement programs
