OrthoServiceLine.com, a free resource to the orthopedic community sponsored by Wellbe, is hosting a complimentary webinar featuring Lorraine Hutzler, Associate Director of the Center for Quality and Patient Safety at NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases at the NYU Langone Medical Center, titled “How to Engage Physicians in Quality/Safety Improvement Using Metrics.”
The unsustainable rising cost of medical care is creating financial pressures that will critically alter the way that health care is both paid for and delivered. Limited resources dictate that we become more efficient at providing high quality care. In an effort to provide financial incentive for delivering quality care the Federal government instituted Value Based Purchasing (VBP) and Bundled Payments. In order to maximize reimbursement under these programs, providers of health care must follow to the basic tenants of the quality principles.
Hutzler will discuss:
- How to build a quality infrastructure for your orthopedic program
- What quality metrics to measure and how to engage surgeons using them
- Lean and Six Sigma principles to use to accelerate improvement
