Value-Based Purchasing: Creating a Culture of Accountability
Improve HCAHPS and quality of care measures under Value-Based Purchasing
Tuesday, August 20, 2013
1:30 p.m. Eastern
The reality is that hospitals are publicly posting their performance of key quality measures. For example, it is easy to find the number of patients at your hospital that reported their pain was "always" well controlled, as opposed to "usually," "sometimes" or "never." A hospital can implement proven practices to bring patients’ perceptions of quality up to the highest level on pain control and other key measures. Getting patients to cite that they always experienced high-quality care requires caregivers to consistently employ evidence-based practices. This creates a culture of accountability, where individuals can be relied upon to execute evidence-based best practices as the standard.
This webinar will describe how leading organizations have successfully improved both HCAHPS and process of care measures under Value-Based Purchasing by focusing not only on process improvement, but also on the human behavioral sciences, enthusiasm and commitment to implementing best practices.
