In the second episode of The PILL Podcast, we interview Dr. Chris Yost, Medical Director for Ambulatory Quality at UK HealthCare, Assistant Professor in the Department of Internal Medicine, and Co-Chair of the UK HealthCare MACRA steering committee. Dr. Yost brings a unique perspective as he leads the initiatives to improve quality and value in a large academic medical center. He not only plays a key role in UK HealthCare’s preparation for value-based payment and quality improvement, but he is also a practicing physician. This makes him better able to handle the key issues of physician buy-in and engagement, which are required for true organizational transformation. He also discusses the journey of leading the charge for Patient-Centered Medical Home recognition and discusses how this designation helps lay a strong foundation for the larger quality improvement infrastructure.
