Healthcare Performance Improvement: Exceeding Core Measure Targets for Value-Based Reimbursement

The establishment of good core measure performance is good patient care, emphasizes Dr. Steve Berkowitz, president of SMB Consulting and former chief medical officer at St. David’s HealthCare, which boasts a mortality index and CMS core measure ratings that are among the best in the nation. Dr. Berkowitz shares his formula for achieving 100 percent performance, describes an incentive program for drivers of the quality measures and weighs in on the need for an EHR to achieve core measure excellence.

Dr. Berkowitz shared practical strategies for improving core measures, as well as modeling techniques to illustrate the impact of a hospital’s failure to meet the measures during Healthcare Performance Improvement: Exceeding Core Measure Targets for Value-Based Reimbursement, a 45-minute webinar on July 20, 2011, now available for replay, sponsored by The Healthcare Intelligence Network.
