Value, Quality, Safety, and Integrity: The Essential Elements of Accountability

In 2010, America is facing a challenge. How can we improve care for all patients at a reasonable cost? Will aligning payment and measurement incentives improve patient safety and quality? What are the elements that are needed to ensure compliance, efficiency, and accountability in health care? What are the practical steps that payers, providers, and purchasers need to take now?

ABQAURP has assembled an extraordinary team of presenters to assess the current health care quality and safety landscape, and to offer practical solutions.

At the conclusion of the conference, attendees will:
Understand how evidence-based principles are essential to the management of chronic pain treatment throughout the health care continuum
Evaluate the impact of program integrity on procedures, technologies, and pharmaceuticals
Appraise how accountable care organizations and global payment systems may support improved coordination and management of patient care
Identify the challenges of computerized physician order entry (CPOE) systems
Discuss how organizations have utilized coordination of care to promote health system change
Recognize the value of interoperability in connecting health care across providers
Describe how Unique Device Identification (UDI) initiatives support patient safety outcomes
Explain to your health care system how compliance initiatives support patient safety and quality of care
Define Meaningful Use (MU) in electronic health information systems and how it can improve patient health care behaviors
For over 30 years, ABQAURP has provided the patient safety and health care quality foundation for Physicians, Nurses, Pharmacists, Hospitals, Health Care Systems, Purchasers, and Payers to thrive, especially now in these turbulent and trying times. Join us to learn why value, quality, safety, and integrity are the essential elements of accountability working together to help us stay afloat.
