Track 1: The Person @ the Center
Putting the person at the center of the digital quality picture requires a deep understanding of those elements that define high quality healthcare. What is important to assess and how can we obtain the information necessary to accomplish the goal of patient-centered care?
Track sessions will cover the following topics:
- Gender Harmony: Accurately capturing sex and gender and how anticipated implementation in standards impact quality measurement
- Gravity Project: Policy and payment implications
- Health Equity Measures: Understand how traditional measure approaches can be used to measure and reduce inequities
- Patient-Developed Measures: Creating a measure that has both a patient-directed outcome and a clinician-driven outcome
