The workshop will feature invited presentations and panel discussions on topics that may include:

  •  An overview of the role of patient experience and shared decision-making in defining quality across a range of evolving care settings, including community-based organizations and home-based care
  • Model programs such as those developed by BlueCross BlueShield of Massachusetts and the Veteran’s Health Administration, as well as international efforts such as the Harvard Global Equity Initiative on Pain Control
  • The roles of key stakeholders driving implementation of quality measures, including: private and public payers; accreditation organizations; and NQF’s National Quality Partners
  • Potential tools and mechanisms for implementation, such as public report cards (i.e., CMS, state-based) and quality improvement efforts undertaken by care programs for serious illness
  • Challenges and opportunities for using potential data sources, including: electronic health records; claims; registries; patient-reported data; and crowdsourcing
  • Ways to develop a feasible approach and timeline for implementing quality measures

The workshop will be live webcast on this page.
