ACHP-Bringing Quality Measurement into the 21st Century-Webinar

July 20, 2020

At the conclusion of this ACHP Bringing Quality Measurement into the 21st Century one-hour (1.0) hour long webinar:

Behavioral Health Leaders, Medical Directors, Clinical and Quality Executives, will have discussed the disruption of COVID-19 on health care costs and utilization, and the subsequent impact on quality; considered ways quality measurement can assess and support appropriate use of telehealth; evaluated how social needs data could be used to understand utilization and costs, and to engage members most at-risk for COVID-19. They will also have explored ways to ensure the relevance of healthcare quality measurement in the “new normal.”

Target Audience

Participants include ACHP Financial Leaders, Medical Directors, Behavioral Health Directors, Quality Leaders, and Clinical Executives from ACHP member plans.

Learning Objectives

This is this second of three ACHP webinars that were originally planned as in-person breakout sessions for its Annual Spring Clinical Collaborative Meeting in Washington, DC on June 3-4, 2020. It will run through WebEx from 11:00am-12:00pm EST, July 20, 2020. The disruption caused by the public health emergency highlights the dire need to modernize quality measurement. It provides an unprecedented opportunity to establish a more meaningful system that increases transparency, decreases burden and supports value-based care delivery. Join your ACHP colleagues in conversation with NCQA about steps taken to address the near-term impacts of COVID-19 and how they can be built upon to accelerate modernization of our quality measurement system. We’ll cover topics such as telehealth, social needs and others.

This discussion is a component of ACHP's effort to seize the opportunity the pandemic disruption presents for a resumption of non-crisis operations that establishes a more modernized direction for health care quality measurement and accountability.
