Webinar: Utilizing Quality Measures to Build an Effective Palliative Care System
Thursday, Oct. 24, 2019
2-3 p.m. (ET)
Palliative care has been shown to decrease costs for those with serious illness, however many states struggle with how to expand access to this service and ensure quality. NASHP’s upcoming webinar, supported by a grant from The John A. Hartford Foundation, will highlight how New York embeds palliative care into its Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) Program, and implemented a uniform assessment tool to track outcomes. A speaker from the National Committee for Quality Assurance will describe the work that organization has led to develop quality measures related to serious illness care. The webinar will provide participants with an overview of the landscape of palliative care quality measurement, how quality measures can be utilized, and highlight state strategies to improve tracking and reporting on quality palliative care measures.
