Hybrid Event with Special Guest Speakers – In Person and Virtual

Oct. 26 2023, Lexington Kentucky, Harper Hall

Kentucky REC Quality Team Speakers: Jessica Elliott & Vance Drakeford

Balancing Cost & Quality: Strategies for Providing Safe and Efficient Care

Providing high quality care at low cost often seems impossible to achieve. However, research studies indicate that higher per beneficiary spending is NOT a predictor of improved long-term patient outcomes.

Through the Quality Payment Program, CMS has established Value in Healthcare as the sum of quality care and patient outcomes proportional to the total cost of care. Regardless of which track you elect to participate in as an eligible clinician or group in the Quality Payment Program, maximizing performance in the Quality and Cost Performance categories is vital for success.

Quality team lead Jessica Elliott, and colleague Vance Drakeford will explore the relationship between clinical quality performance and related cost measures. They will share how to navigate cost measure feedback from prior evaluation and apply QI principles to impact performance across categories.
