October 12, 2022 · David J. Smolar
At NCQA, we believe and solidly state the following principles:
- High quality care is equitable care. AND —
- There is no quality without equity.
This is evidenced by NCQA’s Health Equity Accreditation and Health Equity Accreditation Plus programs.
In this episode, we meet representatives of one of the first nine health care companies to achieve both Health Equity Accreditations, Simply Healthcare, an Elevance Health Company.
We welcome Tammy MacDonald, Staff Vice President for Accreditation and Quality Programs at Elevance Health, and Holly Prince, President, Simply Healthcare Plans Medicaid at Elevance Health.
We also hear from NCQA Education Director Jennifer Dalessandro with details on our upcoming first annual Health Innovation Summit. For more on this year’s 4-day event, go to NCQASummit.com, and to sign up for information on the 2023 Health Innovation Summit, already in the works, click here.
