“Practices should embrace continuous quality improvement in their ongoing work to achieve holistic transformation,” said Debra Simmons, HIMSS presenter, COSEHC Executive Director, and Project Director, QualityImpact Practice Transformation Network (PTN). “By leveraging SPH Analytics’ Population Care patient registry, we were able to utilize a rapid-cycle quality improvement strategy inclusive of data transparency, continuous measurement, and selection of proven strategies tailored to the practice. This proved to be an effective method to identify and close care gaps and improve patient outcomes, as evidenced by our strong program results.”
For more than 20 years, COSEHC has worked to reduce cardiovascular disease, diabetes morbidity and mortality. COSEHC’s experience enabled it to be one of 29 groups awarded with a cooperative agreement under HHS’ new Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative. CMS funding supports the PTN’s provision of clinical expertise and technical assistance to providers throughout the Southeast.
“We are proud to partner with thought leaders like Debra Simmons at COSEHC whose innovative work is transforming patient- and family-centered care through data-driven quality improvement and sustainable business operations,” said Amy Amick, CEO of SPH Analytics. “And we are honored to support the hundreds of provider organizations that are a part of the QualityImpact PTN in their journey to provide the best care to their patients.”
COSEHC’s presentation will take place through the Population Health Management and Public Health Track on Wednesday, February 13, from 1:00-2:00PM (Session ID 140). The session will also be livestreamed and fed into the HIMSS Learning Lounge as well as recorded for on-demand playback by attendees.
