High Performance Quality Improvement: A Four-Part Webinar Series

Overview:
Building on the momentum from a recent public meeting, "Sparking innovation, igniting action, lighting the way to tomorrow's healthcare," hosted by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for Quality Improvement Organizations (QIOs) and the End-Stage Renal Disease Network, this four-part webinar series offers step-by-step guidance to engage major stakeholders of the healthcare value chain. Hospital-Acquired Conditions (HACs), reduction of hospital readmissions, and high-impact patient safety areas important to value-based purchasing programs will be covered. This complementary series of webinars will give quality leaders the tools they need to move the needle in terms of reducing HACs, saving lives, and saving money.

Engaging, Activating, and Partnering with Suppliers as Performance Partners

Four-Part Webinar Series
 Session Overview

The tables have turned: supplier companies now have even more data about performance than most academic centers. This reversal of knowledge can be leveraged. Learn how to partner with your suppliers WHILE managing fears of conflicts of interest and risk of increasing cost. Not all supplier partnerships cost more money – many will preserve revenue. This webinar will address BOTH the barriers and accelerators of effective supplier partnering.

  • An evidence-based approach provides the common framework necessary to make the positive impact on systems and outcomes in the new value-based purchasing world.
  • Hospitals may ask questions of key suppliers that can change the conversation from products to performance, and from sales to solutions.
  • Hear from hospitals that have succeeded in leveraging performance partnerships to positive financial outcomes for all parties – it is not impossible.
