Tracks at Digital Quality Summit 2021
Interactive, hands-on working sessions are a unique and popular feature of the Digital Quality Summit. Participants learn how to develop new ways to implement solutions, coordinate across disciplines and improve communication of health care information systems. This year, track leads and faculty will work with participants in virtual working sessions using online collaboration tools.
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?
