Description

Physicians and hospitals alike are faced with the challenge of “Crossing the Quality Chasm” which was raised by the Institute of Medicine report and has been reinforced by numerous subsequent analyses. Report cards are appearing on websites from payers, CMS and consumer organizations.

Pay for performance is being piloted by insurers and considered in Congress for Medicare. Consumer awareness is piqued and will be further driven by consumer directed health plans’ high deductibles.

Unnecessary or inappropriate care costs an estimated $400 billion each year. Achieving the highest clinical performance is increasingly critical to the success of hospitals and physicians yet, particularly in the community hospital setting, they have not found an effective way to work together toward this common good.

Discover how physicians on the medical staff of a community hospital are using an innovative organizational model to drive clinical performance improvement by listening to “Quality Institutes: How to Create a Successful Infrastructure to Improve Clinical Quality and Patient Safety,” an audio conference on CD-ROM.

This special teleconference on CD-ROM includes a case study of the Center for Healthcare Quality, an independent, physician-led, not-for-profit organization focused on improving healthcare in its community.

These physicians have created an infrastructure that enables them to identify and carryout initiatives to improve clinical outcomes, efficiency and patient and physician satisfaction. The Chairman of CHQ and a partner hospital, Southern Ocean County Hospital, will discuss the issues of coordination and execution.

Presenters:

  • Lou Pavia, President of CareCompanion
  • Dr. John Kulin, Chairman of the Center for Healthcare Quality
  • Dr. Ed Niewiadomski, Vice President of Medical Affairs for Southern Ocean County Hospital

Agenda:

  • Background and rationale of the Center for Healthcare Quality
  • Impetus and challenges of organizing physicians
  • Concept and structure
  • Mission, vision and principles
  • Goals and priorities
  • Leadership and management requirements
  • Coordination with hospital goals and priorities
  • Dynamic tension between CHQ and the medical staff
  • Member benefits
  • Current and future initiatives

Who Will Benefit From This Teleconference on CD-ROM?

CEOs, COOs, medical staff leadership, operations executives, medical directors, chief nurse executives, patient safety executives, patient care administrators, key management executives, department heads, team leaders, PHO and IPA leadership, physician practice management executives, directors of quality assurance, quality improvement managers, directors of medical management, clinical directors, administrative directors, utilization review managers, risk managers, directors of care management, health plan executives, laboratories, pharmaceutical company executives, and consultants.
