Digital Quality Summit

The Digital Quality Summit comprises highly interactive working sessions within three tracks. Attendees will work in teams to solve data challenges using specific quality measures as a use case to demonstrate successful interoperability solutions. Participants will understand how information technology can be used to increase the efficiency of quality reporting and reduce the burden of data collection. In addition, they will engage in hands-on demonstrations for efficiently extracting data for quality reporting. 

The Summit convenes quality improvement stakeholders including senior decision makers, measure development experts, clinicians, government agencies, public health officials, data intermediaries, vendors, and payers to advance measure interoperability solutions.

The Issue 

While most agree, quality measurement facilitates and encourages high-value care, it can prove to be a time and resource burden. Currently, most existing health information technology systems that record, aggregate and analyze health data work well. Often, they don’t work well together. So, it’s time to gather health care and technology’s best and brightest for an exciting demonstration of the fast-paced efforts to eliminate the burdens and bridge this digital gap.

The Opportunity

HL7 and NCQA have partnered to host The Digital Quality Summit. This exciting two-day event brings together key players to demonstrate emerging technology standards for quality reporting. Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR®) standard will play a major role in breaking down the barriers to interoperability. In addition, Clinical Quality Language (CQL) will harmonize standards between electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) and clinical decision support (CDS).

The Plan

This is not the typical conference of just presentations and Powerpoints. This is a summit. Plan for some exciting interaction with your peers. The Digital Quality Summit will include highly interactive work sessions. The teams will work with specific quality measures to solve data challenges and demonstrate their solutions.  Participants will understand how information technology can be used to increase the efficiency of quality reporting and reduce the burden of data collection. In addition, they will engage in hands-on demonstrations for efficiently extracting data for quality reporting.

The People

The summit presents an opportunity for a variety of stakeholders:

  • Quality Improvement Experts.
  • Senior Executives (CIO, CMIO, COO, etc.).
  • Measure Development Experts.
  • Policy Experts.
  • Clinicians.
  • Government Agency Officials.
