The 2011 Cleveland Clinic Health Care Quality
Innovation Summit is devoted to exploring novel
strategies for improving the assessment and delivery
of quality health care. This 2½-day multidisciplinary
conference brings together the major stakeholders in
this process for in-depth discussions of the shared and
sometimes competing visions through which health quality
metrics can be used to advance health care outcomes.
Stakeholders include patients, physicians, nurses,
provider institutions, professional societies, public and
private payers, regulatory agencies, nongovernment
organizations, patient safety organizations, the device
and pharmaceutical industry, funding agencies, as well as
state and federal government agencies.
The Quality Innovation Summit will examine medical
and surgical care and prevention of acute and chronic
disease in six major medical domains: musculoskeletal,
endocrine and metabolic disease, cardiovascular
disease, primary care, medical imaging, and laboratory
medicine and pathology.
The goal of this Summit is to enable attendees to do
the following:
• Build a shared understanding of the vocabulary,
issues, and competing and common interests
and visions shaping the practices of medicine
and health care;
• Participate in a dynamic forum to explore, discuss,
and debate the most effective tools, contexts, and
systems with which to assess the quality and value
of health care in each of these medical domains;
• Examine current best practice models and major
obstacles and discuss options to address the
shared challenge of implementing systems of
quality metrics;
• Critically assess current and proposed methods
through which health care quality information
can be used to improve health care decision
making and delivery, associated business and
operational models, and state and federal
health policy decisions.
